she better not be carrying baby #2, since clearly she’s got enough trouble with #1.
According to The New York Post, Britney cruised down the Pacific Coast Highway in her SUV with 16-week-old Sean on her lap. That’s a no-no in California, whose law says kids “must be secured in an appropriate child-passenger restraint [a safety or booster seat] until they are at least 6 years old or weigh at least 60 pounds.”
The picture is one of a series in which the background is clearly changing as, the photogragher says, Britney drives between Cross Creek and Los Flores Ã¢â‚¬â€ about two miles.
The photographer told The Post that he came upon Britney at a Starbucks in the Malibu area at 1 p.m. “I noticed she had the baby in her lap,” he said. “Next thing I know, she was driving south on the PCH … I’m not sure if she was wearing a seat belt … I was surprised. She looked very relaxed — like it was a normal thing to do.” The singer’s bodyguard was in the front passenger seat.
Britney issued a statement to People magazine saying, “Today I had a horrifying, frightful encounter with the paparazzi while I was with my baby. Because of a recent incident when I was trapped in my car without my baby by a throng of paparazzi, I was terrified that this time the physically aggressive paparazzi would put both me and my baby in danger. I instinctively took measures to get my baby and me out of harm’s way, but the paparazzi continued to stalk us, and took photos of us which were sold to the media. I love my child and would do anything to protect him.”
The TV show ‘EXTRA’ has obtained the following statement from X17, the company that took the picture: “These pictures were taken in a very peaceful context, in which photographers exhibited no aggressive behavior. We believe the pictures speak for themselves.”
