After a rocky romance with paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and a devastating marriage to Kevin Federline, Britney Spears has found love with agent Jason Trawick -- and her mother, Lynne, thinks he is The One, Us Weekly reports in its latest issue (on newsstands now).

"Lynne said, 'He's the kind of man you would dream of your daughter marrying. The kids love him, and he's stable,'" a friend tells Us Weekly.

Trawick, 37, stood by Spears, 27, during her darkest moments (she was involuntarily committed twice to a psychiatric hospital in 2008 and lost custody of sons Sean, 4, and Jayden, 3, the year before).

"Most everyone else abandoned her, but Jason refused to be completely cut out of Britney's life," says a source. "He's very protective of her."

Besides his quick wit and ability to make her laugh in any situation, sources tell Us Trawick accepts Britney - drama and all.

"She has been honest with Jason about what she’s been through in a way that I don't think she's been with other people, and he always preferred to not sugarcoat the harsh reality of what happened to her," says a pal. "He tells her when she should take responsibility for her own actions."

For much more on Spears - including how she is still haunted by the effect her mental illness had on her boys, how she has repaired her once rocky relationship with her mother and how Trawick has already began acting as "dad" to the singer's sons - pick up the new Us Weekly today!
