Britney Spears is reportedly drinking a traditional fertility potion in a bid to get pregnant on her honeymoon. The newlywed star, who jetted to Fiji with new husband Kevin Federline last week, has been downing the special tincture after locals told her it would boost her chance of conceiving. A source said: "She's doing everything she can to prepare herself for having a baby. Usual blends of the cocktail can aid sleep but the one they have been drinking is an aphrodisiac and helps conception." The couple have reportedly been drinking the brew, which also claims to increase sexual prowess in men, every day. But despite claiming to boost fertility, the exotic Kava concoction, which contains the herbs ginseng and damiana, is also renowned for its revolting flavour. The source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Britney has been drinking Kava on a daily basis. The only problem is it tastes disgusting." But the couple, who married in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles last month, have made no secret of their desire to start a family.

Last week, pop babe Britney, who is already stepmother to Kevin's two children from a previous relationship, told fans through her website that she was planning to take a year off to prepare for her first child.
