Jamie Lynn Spears, the American actress and singer, turns 20-years-old today (4th April 2011), reports US Weekly Magazine.
The younger sister of pop superstar Britney Spears is best known for her appearance on the Nickelodeon show 'All That' and for playing 'Zoey Brooks' on 'Zoey 101'. Jamie hit the headlines in December 2007 after announcing that she was expecting a child with her boyfriend CASEY ALDRIDGE. The news caused a considerable amount of controversy as Spears was only 16-years-old at the time but Nickelodeon issued a statement noting that the network respected her decision to take responsibility. The actress announced her engagement to Aldridge in 2008 and the couple moved into a house in Liberty, Mississippi, shortly after. Since giving birth to her first child, Spears has rarely made any television appearances, although she featured in one episode of the U.S. sitcom 'Miss Guided' in 2008.
Jamie Lynn Spears and her fiance called off their engagement in March 2009 and the actress moved out of their home shortly after. After a brief reconciliation, the couple split for a second time in November 2010.
