A friend of the "Toxic" singer told RadarOnline.com exclusively that the pair is moving too fast, as the songstress wants to build on the bond between Ebersol and her sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline, Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden, 8.
"Britney says that she wants her boys to have a full-time father again so bad, and she thinks that Charlie is the perfect man to fill the shoes," the insider said.
As Radar previously reported, while Spears is performing in her "Piece of Me" residency that is running at Planet Hollywood thru 2017, Ebersol, 33, is busy playing babysitter to her sons.
"Her friends are worried that he has taken on the role of father too quickly," the source tells Radar, adding that the boys have really latched onto him. "She has told her friends that Charlie really wants to have kids of his own, but people on her staff fear this, because if Britney gets pregnant, the gig is up."
While another pregnancy "wouldn't be the end of the world" for Spears -- "She has enough money for two lifetimes," the insider says -- "it would literally mean unemployment" for her show biz troupe.
