Ebersol’s mother, Kate And Ally star Susan Saint James, “cannot believe that her son is getting serious with Britney,” a source close to the 68-year-old actress tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“Charlie introduced Britney to the both of them as his girlfriend,” the source says. “But they do not agree about her.”
“Dick thinks it is great to see his son happy, but Susan wants him to be with someone not famous.”
According to the insider, Saint. James doesn’t believe that the rehab alum, who infamously suffered a nervous breakdown in 2007, is a suitable wife for her son.
“All Charlie’s mother has ever wanted is for him to get married and have children,” the source tells Radar. “She just doesn’t think Britney is the right choice.”
As Radar previously reported, “Britney and Charlie have hit it off and she has her father to thank for this,” a different source said, referring to the pop princess’s father, Jamie Spears, 61, who ‘hand-picked’ Ebersol for his daughter.
Fortunately, Spears’ two children, Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden, 8, are fans of the new romance, as Spears took to her Instagram just two days before her 33rd birthday to share yet another photo of Ebersol and her kids playing on the beach together.
“So grateful for family time this weekend. ❤ my boys!” she wrote.
