How did Jamie Lynn Spears become famous?
Jamie Lynn Spears was born in 1991 and is the younger sister of Britney Spears. She is ten years younger than her famous sister and was a small child when Britney Spears first achieved prominence.

Jamie Lynn Spears’ pregnancy shocker
In 2007, Jamie Lynn Spears announced that she was pregnant at the age of 16, sending the tabloids into a tailspin. The news put an end to her Nickelodeon TV series, and Spears mostly retreated from the spotlight to raise her daughter, born in the summer of 2008. While Spears and her then-boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, got engaged and attempted to start their life together, they ultimately ended their relationship in 2010.
Spears found love again with businessman Jamie Watson, and the two got married in 2014. They welcomed a daughter in 2018, Spears’ second.
