Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol may have gone their separate ways but there are still two very important men in the singer’s life – her sons.

The Grammy winner, who recently called it quits with her boyfriend of eight months, shared a sweet pic on Instagram on Friday that showed her smiling and happy with her youngest son, Jayden James Federline, 8.

She also posted a message earlier on Friday that hinted at her resolve to move onwards and upwards. “Make today so awesome yesterday gets jealous,” read her inspirational note.

While Spears, 33, and Ebersol, 32, appeared to have a good relationship, often sharing sweet pictures on Twitter and Instagram, sources close to the pair tell PEOPLE that the split didn’t come as a surprise.
