Jamie Lynn Spears posted a foxy picture of herself in a leopard-styled bikini with her family while staying home in quarantine. As the younger sister to pop sensation Britney Spears, Jamie currently resides in Mississippi and has recently taken on an acting role for the new Netflix series “Sweet Magnolias”.
The 29-year-old actress made her early rise to fame after playing Zoey Brooks on the Nickelodeon teen sitcom Zoey 101.
She was forced to put her acting career on hold after becoming pregnant at the age of 16.
Back in 2007, it was reported in an interview with OK! magazine that Jamie had gotten pregnant from her now ex-fiance Casey Aldridge.
It has been over a decade since Jamie has taken any acting jobs. The teen mom did release a few music singles and an EP in 2013, but that was the last item reported in regards to her career.
In 2014, she married Jamie Watson and had their first child and daughter together (Jamie’s second child) Ivey Joan.
Almost ironically, the mother of two now plays a nurse who gets pregnant after secretly having an affair with a fellow doctor. The Netflix series “Sweet Magnolias” has Jamie playing a role that mirror’s her own life so closely, that she actually told Hollywood Reporter “It didn’t even feel like acting…”
Jamie continued, “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.”
The foxy momma didn’t have to try very hard when it came to playing her latest role. Her character deals with many of the same things that she had to deal with as 16-year-old teen mom:
“For this part, I really just drew from the experience of being a young girl who was trying to do what was best for her and her child,” she added. “I was under a microscope, and in Noreen’s case, she has the whole town of Serenity watching her. So there are definitely parallels there.”
When asked by Entertainment Tonight whether her sister Britney Spears was thinking about retiring, Jamie has this to say after revealing that she and her family were staying with the pop star:
“Right now, she’s quarantining in L.A. But, in general, she’s kind of just relaxing. And I think that’s good. Britney deserves that. She’s worked her a** off. So if she wants to make another album, great. But if she doesn’t feel like it, she doesn’t have to. She’s given the world a lot. I don’t think there are plans for anything — at the moment.”
