She's been unlucky in love in the past, but Britney Spears' romantic life appears to be looking up.
The singer said to be happily involved with her agent, Jason Trawick, and her family have given the relationship their seal of approval.
Following months of speculation, a source confirmed to people.com: 'They are totally and definitely dating. Mail Online
'Her dad loves him. He's the best thing that happened to her.'
Trawick has been photographed with the pop star several times recently.
They were spotted in the Caribbean last month, where Britney was joined by her father Jamie, brother Bryan and sons Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two.
Looking healthy and toned, the singer beamed as she frolicked in the water with Trawick.
And last year he was seen by her side on the beach in Costa Rica, where she stayed at Mel Gibson's property.
The pair seemed to be getting along well, laughing and joking together on the sand.
She also wrapped her arms around him as he drove her around on a quad bike.
The source said the couple are 'very sweet together', adding that Britney had 'always had a crush on Trawick', who is one of her brother Bryan's best friends.
'He makes Britney really happy, and he's great with the boys,' the source said.
The singer's representative did not comment on the claims.
Britney, who is currently in the UK as part of her Circus tour, has endured a tumultuous relationship with paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, and a high-profile divorce from Kevin Federline.
