In 2005, she came to prominence after being cast in the Nickelodeon television series Zoey 101, where she portrayed the titular character Zoey Brooks. In 2007, sixteen-year-old Spears generated controversy after announcing her pregnancy. She gave birth to daughter Maddie Aldridge the following year, effectively sending her career into hiatus. In 2013, Spears relaunched her career as a country music recording artist, and released her debut single \"How Could I Want More\".

Life and career

Early life

Spears was born in McComb, Mississippi to James and Lynne Spears. She has two siblings, Britney and Bryan. She attended Parklane Academy, where she was a cheerleader and a member of the basketball team. She finished her education via online correspondence and received her GED in February 2008 through Tangipahoa Parish School System Adult Education Center.

Career

In February 2002, Spears made her acting debut in the Paramount Pictures drama film Crossroads which starred her sister, who portrayed the central character Lucy Wagner. Spears made a cameo, playing the younger version of Britney\'s character.

Following Crossroads, Nickelodeon cast Spears as a regular performer in the eighth season of the sketch comedy series All That. The season followed a two-year hiatus of the series. Spears portrayed various roles through the two seasons she appeared in as well as herself. Spear\'s performance received positive reviews from critics with many complimenting her comedic timing and being a highlight of the show. Spears did not return for the series\' tenth season to pursue other roles on the network.

2004–08: Breakthrough with Zoey 101

In August 2004, Spears signed a development deal with Nickelodeon in which she would star as the protagonist in her own scripted television series that would air on the network. The series went on to be titled Zoey 101. Spears portrayed the role of Zoey Brooks and centered on Zoey and her friends who attend a fictional boarding school, Pacific Coast Academy (PCA). Spears recorded the series theme song, titled \"Follow Me\", which was written by her sister Britney. Filmed at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, the series premiered on January 9, 2005, the network\'s highest rated series premiere in over eight years. Spears won a Young Artist Award and a Nickelodeon Kids\' Choice Awards for her performance. Nickelodeon announced the fourth season would be the series\' last season. The series finale, \"PCA Confidential\", aired on May 2, 2008.

In December 2007, Variety announced Spears had signed on to guest appear in the ABC Comedy Sitcom series Miss Guided, in which she played the role of the promiscuous high school student Mandy Fener in the episode \"Hot Sub\" which aired on March 20, 2008. That same year Spears voiced the role of Goldilocks in the Direct-to-DVD animation film Goldilocks & 3 Bears Show. The film is the third and final installment of the Unstable Fables trilogy.

2008–13: hiatus

Nickelodeon issued a statement shortly after the announcement of her being pregnant at the age of 16 stating that the network respected Spears\'s decision to take responsibility and noting that its primary concern was for her well-being.

The announcement of Spears\'s pregnancy generated controversy, as the media was accused of using the story to \"glamorize\" teenage pregnancy. Some teens were disappointed with the contrast between Spears\'s on screen personality as a \"good girl\" and her real life pregnancy.

Following Spears\' move to Nashville, she began working on a country music album with a number of local music producers. On November 7, 2011, Spears held a small concert at the Rutledge in Nashville in which she performed a set of original songs. Jamie Lynn Spears Resurfacing As A Country Music Singer. Fox News (2010-04-07). Retrieved 2011-11-28.

2013–present: Music career

On November 25, 2013, Spears released her first single \"How Could I Want More\" from her upcoming debut album. Spears is featured on her older sister\'s eighth studio album Britney Jean on the song \"Chillin\' With You\".

Personal life

Teenage pregnancy and controversy

On December 20, 2007, in an interview with OK! magazine, Spears announced that she was pregnant by her then-boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. She was 16 years old at the time. Aldridge, whom she had been dating for two years, was 18. Spears gave birth to a daughter, Maddie Briann Aldridge on June 19, 2008 at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in McComb.

Spears confirmed her engagement to Aldridge in March 2008 after it was reported she was seen wearing an engagement ring. \"Jamie Lynn Spears Shows Off New Engagement Ring to Friends\". People. 2008-03-25. Retrieved 2010-08-08. In May 2008, the couple moved back to Liberty, Mississippi, and purchased a house, with Spears stating they would raise their child there. Spears and Aldridge called off their engagement in March 2009, and Spears ended the relationship and moved out in February 2010. \"Jamie Lynn Spears Moves out – and Moves on with New Guy\". People. 2010-02-07. Retrieved 2010-02-07. Spears and Aldridge reconciled in August 2010, \"Are Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge Getting Back Together?\". People. 2010-02-13. Retrieved 2010-02-14. but ended their relationship a second time in November 2010. \"Jamie Lynn, Aldridge split\". Toronto Sun. 2010-11-10. Retrieved 2010-11-13. \"Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge Break Up Again\". 411 Sun. 2010-11-10. Retrieved 2010-11-13. In April 2010, Spears moved from Liberty, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue her long desired music career.

Controversy surfaced because Spears was two years below the California age of consent, raising questions about her and Aldridge\'s age difference, and whether Aldridge could or would be charged with statutory rape (although Spears was neither from California nor living there). It was later confirmed that Aldridge was just under two years older than Spears, which meant that he could be charged only with a misdemeanor under California law, since the crime is only charged as a felony if the two people having sex are at least three years apart in age. On June 4, 2008, while in Amite County, Mississippi, the Spears family filed a complaint against Edwin Merrino, a paparazzo who, they believed, was following and stalking the couple. Merrino denied the allegation. He was released later in the day after posting a $1,096 bond. \"Shutterbug Accused of Stalking Jamie Lynn.\" E! Online. 2008-06-04. Retrieved 2011-08-08.

In September 2008, following the announcement that Bristol Palin was pregnant, it was reported that Spears had sent her a gift. \"Teen mom support group: Jamie Lynn Spears sends gift to Bristol Palin\". New York Daily News. 2008-09-03. Retrieved 2010-09-18. \"Report: Jamie Lynn Spears Sends Gift to Bristol Palin\". Fox News (2008-09-03). Retrieved 2010-09-18. Comparisons between the two cases were made. \"Lynn Spears: \"Hypocrital\" How Pregnant Bristol Palin Treated Vs. Jamie Lynn\". Huffington Post. 2008-09-24. Retrieved 2010-09-18. \"Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears to Bristol Palin: Get Out of My Spotlight!\". Huffington Post. 2008-10-08. Retrieved 2010-09-18. \"Bristol Palin, Jamie Lynn Spears: The Brave New World of Teen Mothers\". Fox News (2009-02-18). Retrieved 2010-09-18.

Marriage

She subsequently began a relationship with Jamie Watson, a businessman who owns communications service Advanced Media Partners. After two years of off and on dating, they announced their engagement in March 2013. On March 14, 2014, she married Watson in New Orleans.

Life and career

\n\n\n\n

Early life

\n\nSpears was born in McComb, Mississippi to James and Lynne Spears. She has two siblings, Britney and Bryan. She attended Parklane Academy, where she was a cheerleader and a member of the basketball team. She finished her education via online correspondence and received her GED in February 2008 through Tangipahoa Parish School System Adult Education Center.

\n\n

Career

\n\nIn February 2002, Spears made her acting debut in the Paramount Pictures drama film Crossroads which starred her sister, who portrayed the central character Lucy Wagner. Spears made a cameo, playing the younger version of Britney\'s character.

Following Crossroads, Nickelodeon cast Spears as a regular performer in the eighth season of the sketch comedy series All That. The season followed a two-year hiatus of the series. Spears portrayed various roles through the two seasons she appeared in as well as herself. Spear\'s performance received positive reviews from critics with many complimenting her comedic timing and being a highlight of the show. Spears did not return for the series\' tenth season to pursue other roles on the network.

\n\n

2004–08: Breakthrough with Zoey 101

\n\nIn August 2004, Spears signed a development deal with Nickelodeon in which she would star as the protagonist in her own scripted television series that would air on the network. The series went on to be titled Zoey 101. Spears portrayed the role of Zoey Brooks and centered on Zoey and her friends who attend a fictional boarding school, Pacific Coast Academy (PCA). Spears recorded the series theme song, titled \"Follow Me\", which was written by her sister Britney. Filmed at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, the series premiered on January 9, 2005, the network\'s highest rated series premiere in over eight years. Spears won a Young Artist Award and a Nickelodeon Kids\' Choice Awards for her performance. Nickelodeon announced the fourth season would be the series\' last season. The series finale, \"PCA Confidential\", aired on May 2, 2008.

In December 2007, Variety announced Spears had signed on to guest appear in the ABC Comedy Sitcom series Miss Guided, in which she played the role of the promiscuous high school student Mandy Fener in the episode \"Hot Sub\" which aired on March 20, 2008. That same year Spears voiced the role of Goldilocks in the Direct-to-DVD animation film Goldilocks & 3 Bears Show. The film is the third and final installment of the Unstable Fables trilogy.

\n\n

2008–13: hiatus

\n\nNickelodeon issued a statement shortly after the announcement of her being pregnant at the age of 16 stating that the network respected Spears\'s decision to take responsibility and noting that its primary concern was for her well-being.

The announcement of Spears\'s pregnancy generated controversy, as the media was accused of using the story to \"glamorize\" teenage pregnancy. Some teens were disappointed with the contrast between Spears\'s on screen personality as a \"good girl\" and her real life pregnancy.

Following Spears\' move to Nashville, she began working on a country music album with a number of local music producers. On November 7, 2011, Spears held a small concert at the Rutledge in Nashville in which she performed a set of original songs. Jamie Lynn Spears Resurfacing As A Country Music Singer.

2013–present: Music career

\n\nOn November 25, 2013, Spears released her first single \"How Could I Want More\" from her upcoming debut album. Spears is featured on her older sister\'s eighth studio album Britney Jean on the song \"Chillin\' With You\".

Personal life

\n\n\n\n

Teenage pregnancy and controversy

\n\nOn December 20, 2007, in an interview with OK! magazine, Spears announced that she was pregnant by her then-boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. She was 16 years old at the time. Aldridge, whom she had been dating for two years, was 18. Spears gave birth to a daughter, Maddie Briann Aldridge on June 19, 2008 at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in McComb.

Spears confirmed her engagement to Aldridge in March 2008 after it was reported she was seen wearing an engagement ring. \"Jamie Lynn Spears Shows Off New Engagement Ring to Friends\". People. 2008-03-25. Retrieved 2010-08-08. In May 2008, the couple moved back to Liberty, Mississippi, and purchased a house, with Spears stating they would raise their child there. Spears and Aldridge called off their engagement in March 2009, and Spears ended the relationship and moved out in February 2010. \"Jamie Lynn Spears Moves out – and Moves on with New Guy\". People. 2010-02-07. Retrieved 2010-02-07. Spears and Aldridge reconciled in August 2010, \"Are Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge Getting Back Together?\". People. 2010-02-13. Retrieved 2010-02-14. but ended their relationship a second time in November 2010. \"Jamie Lynn, Aldridge split\". Toronto Sun. 2010-11-10. Retrieved 2010-11-13. \"Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge Break Up Again\". 411 Sun. 2010-11-10. Retrieved 2010-11-13. In April 2010, Spears moved from Liberty, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue her long desired music career.

Controversy surfaced because Spears was two years below the California age of consent, raising questions about her and Aldridge\'s age difference, and whether Aldridge could or would be charged with statutory rape (although Spears was neither from California nor living there). It was later confirmed that Aldridge was just under two years older than Spears, which meant that he could be charged only with a misdemeanor under California law, since the crime is only charged as a felony if the two people having sex are at least three years apart in age. On June 4, 2008, while in Amite County, Mississippi, the Spears family filed a complaint against Edwin Merrino, a paparazzo who, they believed, was following and stalking the couple. Merrino denied the allegation. He was released later in the day after posting a $1,096 bond. \"Shutterbug Accused of Stalking Jamie Lynn.\" E! Online. 2008-06-04. Retrieved 2011-08-08.

In September 2008, following the announcement that Bristol Palin was pregnant, it was reported that Spears had sent her a gift. \"Teen mom support group: Jamie Lynn Spears sends gift to Bristol Palin\". New York Daily News. 2008-09-03. Retrieved 2010-09-18. \"Report: Jamie Lynn Spears Sends Gift to Bristol Palin\". Fox News (2008-09-03). Retrieved 2010-09-18. Comparisons between the two cases were made. \"Lynn Spears: \"Hypocrital\" How Pregnant Bristol Palin Treated Vs. Jamie Lynn\". Huffington Post. 2008-09-24.
