Britney Spears’ mother, Lynne, just shared a photo of one of the singer’s sons holding hands with their longtime African-American bodyguard, Lonnie, calling him the children’s ‘Superhero.’
In a message, Lynne Spears posted on Facebook, she wanted to point out the positive impact this person has had on her grandkid’s life — and to remind all of Britney’s fans ‘love see no color.’
The picture was taken many years ago when Britney’s son was a toddler and shows Lonnie holding the youngster’s hand as he plays in the ocean’s waves.

Britney’s mom posted the photo of one of the kids, holding hands with the bodyguard with this message:
“I wanted to share one of my favorite family photos of the man who has been a constant in my 2 grandsons’ lives since they were babies. He loves our boys unconditionally, and we love him the same.”
Britney’s mom added just how blessed the family is to have had Lonnie is their lives all this time saying, “because we are blessed they have such a good Godly man as an influence in their lives, and we are all better for knowing him.”
The photo itself is shot from behind the bodyguard and one of Britney’s sons, and it wasn’t until a fan asked Lynne Spears about the man in the photo’s identity, that she answered it was “Lonnie, the boy’s bodyguard since birth.”
The bottom line, Lynne wanted Britney’s fans to get the message, “Love sees no color, just like my grandson looking up to his big superhero in this photo.”
Britney’s little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, shared the photo of Lonnie and one of Britney’s sons adding, “My mom shared this photo and message on her Facebook, and I wanted to share it as well. God’s light shines so bright through this man, and that’s all anyone should ever see♥️”
As you can imagine, Spears fans flooded Mrs. Spears and Jamie’s social media pages in reaction to seeing the picture.
“Your grandsons are so lucky to have a mother, an entire family for that matter, that teaches kindness and acceptance, your granddaughters as well! This is beautiful ❤️Lonnie seems like a wonderful man to have in their lives,” one person wrote.
Another added, “This is awesome! Love doesn’t see color and family also doesn’t necessarily mean blood. Love it.”
As you know, Britney Spears has had a full-time security detail for decades, and there is people specifically assigned to her children.
In reaction to the photo, one fan put it like this, “Children are proof that racism isn’t a natural instinct.”
