Read more below about Jamie Lynn Spears and her hectic life from Zoey 101 to Sweet Magnolias and everything in between.
Who Is Jamie Lynn Spears?
Jamie Lynn Spears, who is named after her parents Jamie and Lynne is the sister of the famous pop star Britney Spears. But Spears doesn’t live in her sister’s shadow as she has generated her own fame through her job as an actress and singer in Hollywood.
Why Is She Famous?
Jamie Lynn Spears is famous for her role as Zoey Brooks on Zoey 101, a teen sitcom that was aired on Nickelodeon. She starred on the show for three years between 2005 and 2008.
For her role in Zoey 101, Spears received thirteen awards nominations of which five were won. She won awards for the Favorite TV Actress and a Young Hollywood Award for One To Watch.
She is also famous for her role as Noreen in the Netflix show Sweet Magnolias that first aired in 2020.
Children, Marriage and Returning to Acting
Just as she was picking up momentum in the industry, she fell pregnant with her first child Maddie whom she gave birth to in 2008 when she was 17, making her one of America’s teen moms.
In 2008, the birth rate amongst White females in the US aged between 15 and 19 was 26.7 per 1,000 births. As the years have passed by, the volume of teen pregnancies in America has decreased and by 2019, the teen birth rate in America had reached a record low.
In an interview with PEOPLE, Spears provided an insight into being a young mom and told us what it’s all about.
“I used to be insecure at times, because I was always the youngest mom in the room,” She said. “I have met some of the most wonderful amazing moms who are anywhere from 20 years old to 50 years old, so young or old, love is all it’s really about.”
After welcoming her first child, Spears took time out from working in Hollywood to raise Maddie. She made a partial return to Hollywood in 2013 with her debut extended play The Journey which contained the single “How Could I Want More?”
The EP didn’t perform well on the charts, only spending a week at number 193 on Billboard 200. Meanwhile her debut single “How Could I Want More?” appeared on the Hot Country Songs chart where it spent a total of seven weeks on the chart. The single reached number 29.
By 2014, when Maddie was six, Spears married Jamie Watson and in 2018 followed the couple’s first child together, Ivey Joan Watson.
A year after Ivey’s birth, Spears attracted the media’s attention after dyeing her hair brunette ahead of her return to acting in the Netflix series Sweet Magnolias where she stars as the nurse Noreen.
The return to acting was a euphoric decision that provided the perfect opportunity to make her mark, with Spears revealing in an interview, “I think life has a way of putting itself at the right place at the right time and this was it. This was the right place at the right time.”
