Jamie Lynn Spears is likely getting Googled a lot right now. The 29-year-old sister to pop princess Britney Spears has her “Sweet Magnolias” Netflix show premiering on the streaming platform today May 19 – the “Zoey 101” alum has been gearing up for the series’ kick-off over on her Instagram, although a prosthetic baby bump donned by her Noreen character had fans doing a double-take earlier this month.
Jamie Lynn herself was a teenage mother, currently raising 11-year-old Maddie and 2-year-old Ivey. Her latest IG photos showed stunning moments from her new Netflix show.
Keep scrolling for the photo. It follows a series of images of Jamie Lynn promoting “Sweet Magnolias” – not all with that fake baby bump – as the Tennessee native posed in Daisy Dukes from a college bathroom, also flaunting her killer legs in tiny shorts as she gave Instagram a rare insight into the exact ways those baby bumps are made.
Photos posted today showed Jamie Lynn on set and looking stunning in a skimpy, ribbed sundress in floral prints as she announced that “THE WAIT IS OVER.”
Google Trends, monitoring the search activity for anything you type in, has been showing a spike in searches for the former Nickelodeon face. May has seen Jamie Lynn’s searches shoot up, although her 1.9 million-strong Instagram following has yet to manifest any massive rise.
That Instagram account has been busy amid COVID-19, though. Jamie Lynn was the one to tag “Toxic” singer sister Britney in the #DoYourPart challenge, with both siblings offering to pay for food and diapers in March – Jamie Lynn has since thanked frontline workers with touching chalk drawings made by her kids. Healthcare workers were so moved, they personally thanked her in the comments section.
A fresh interview with The Hollywood Reporter saw Jamie Lynn liken her pregnant character Noreen to her own personal experiences.
“It didn’t even feel like acting,” she said, adding:
“Although it was nerve-racking to get back in front of the camera, this felt very natural for me. I remember being 16 years old, being pregnant in a small town. And then on top of it, the whole world was watching. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t view myself as a victim. And with Noreen, it was important to not play the victim either.”
It’s been five days since Jamie Lynn took to Instagram with a pool update showing that killer bikini bodies definitely run in the Spears family – sister Britney shut down Instagram with hers recently as she floated around the pool of her L.A. mansion. Jamie Lynn rocked a leopard-print bikini as she held infant Maddie, with the snap also showing 65-year-old mom Lynne Spears looking sensational in her swimwear.
The post’s caption mentioned both “Sweet Magnolias” and the global pandemic – Jamie Lynn asked if anyone else wanted to be “at the beach??”
