Jamie Lynn Spears (born April 4, 1991) is an American actress and the younger sister of pop star Britney Spears. She is perhaps best known for playing the teenager Zoey Brooks on the Nickelodeon television show, Zoey 101, and for getting knocked up.
Jamie Lynn Spears was born in McComb, Mississippi to Jamie and Lynne Spears, who couldn't think of an original name. She attended school in McComb at Parklane Academy, where she was a cheerleader and basketball player. "She always liked shaking her pom poms and playing with balls," said older sister Britney. "That's why I call her my Minime."
She finished her education there via online correspondence, and received her GED in February 2008 from Barbie High School of Kenwoody, Louisiana. (more...)
