So, we fully admit we totally didn’t know that Jamie Lynn Spears was dating anyone, because her famous sister, Britney Spears, took up all our brain space. But Jamie has now left the dating pool behind to become engaged to her boyfriend, 30-year-old Jamie Watson. Yes, they share the same name. Jamie squared have been dating for three years proving a nine-year time different ain’t nothing. Jamie — lady Jamie, that is — excitedly tweeted out the photo you so above, writing, “Guesssss what??????” And if you’d like a close-up of the rock, you can see it right here. Britney for Maid of Honor, for the win! Congratulations to Jamie and Jamie! They look really happy!

In truth, celebrities’ children are not actually any cuter than regular kids, and we should not be here to judge one small, nonprofessional child against the other. BUT. After spending a week perusing through squee-worthy Twitpics of Snooki’s and Vanessa Lachey’s babies, catching sightings of Halle Berry and Denise Richards taking their kids to the pumpkin patch, seeing Emme Anthony fall asleep on J.Lo’s lap at a Paris fashion show, and more, we decided we just had to do something with all of this collective cuteness. And so we decided to make you decide which of these is the most adorable of all. We’re sure you’ll be up for the task.

Well, squee. We’re never going to not like a little kid dressed up as a celebrity, and it’s certainly no different if the kid is actually related to the famous person in question. “Guess who Maddie want to for Celebrity Day at school #HomecomingWeek,” Jamie Lynn Spears tweeted today, along with a photo of her teeny daughter shuffling off to class in Britney‘s “Baby One More Time” uniform. Based on the thousands of times we saw it in 1999, we can confirm that Maddie’s hair game is particularly dead-on. God bless Claire’s, or whatever store at the mall still has baby pink marabou hair ties! In some small way, they’re helping keep BritBrit’s legacy alive for the next generation.
In case you don’t already follow her, Jamie Lynn’s Instagram keeps a reliable stream of cuteness coming, from vacation time pics to cuddling pets. Speaking of cute, we actually just checked the “Baby One More Time” video again and realized that Maddy’s outfit is demonstrably cuter than the original. Why was everyone wearing giant Frankenstein loafers with huge square heels in the late ’90s? And the burgundy lipstick? No human of any age, in any era, should wear so much lip liner.

You guys can keep ogling those pics we posted yesterday of Gabrielle Union taking in the Miami heat, or admire Kate Upton’s design skill as she posed for her very own line of bikinis. We’ll be over here awwwing over the pics Jamie Lynn Spears Instagram’d of her and 3-year-old daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge on Sunday with the simple captions “#poolday” and “#littlegirls #littlemoments.”
After years away from the spotlight following her scandalous pregnancy at age 16, Jamie Lynn has been getting back in the music biz lately. She performed a bunch of original songs in Nashville (where she now lives) last November and said she’d be releasing a country album this year. She split from Maddie’s father, Casey Aldridge, in 2009, and has since been raising her daughter with the help of her family.
For a combination child star, sibling of Britney Spears and teen mom, Jamie Lynn Spears is way more functional than she has any right to be. In the new issue of Glamour, Jamie Lynn wants everyone to know she’s done a lot of growing up since she had daughter Maddie at 16. Let’s start with a very mature recounting of how she became accidentally pregnant with boyfriend Casey Aldridge. Oh yes, girl goes there. “I believe in safety and birth control as prevention. But like many young girls…I was really scared to go to the doctor,” the former Zoey 101 star reveals. “And I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it [felt] especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control.” What’s Jamie keeping over there? Oh, she’s keeping it real? Just wanted to make sure.
Now at the cusp of 21, Jamie Lynn is finally easing back into the spotlight, having made her singing debut this past November in Nashville. Just keep in mind when you’re blasting her album in a few years that Jamie has not had an easy go of things. “When I saw MTV’s Teen Mom was coming out, I remember thinking, Oh my God, I cannot wait to see this show because there’s someone else out there,” she admits. “I mean, I feel for those girls. I’ve been that girl. It does show that motherhood is hard. There were so many times—especially when Maddie would get sick—when I would cry to myself and think, I really don’t know what to do.” We can tell we’re going to like this new Jamie Lynn a lot. Like, Britney-circa-In The Zone levels of like. Just to be clear, that is the album that has “Toxic” on it.

We haven’t heard much from Jamie Lynn Spears after she made big sister Britney an auntie back in 2008. Her show Zoey 101 wrapped right before the birth of baby Madison, and since then she’s been living quietly in Tennessee. But last night Jamie hired a babysitter and took to the stage at a Nashville music venue! The 20-year-old mom made her singing debut at The Rutledge with a set of country-tinged songs that she’d written herself. The crowd was reportedly packed with close friends and family, including her parents and grandfather June, who traveled all the way from the family homestead in Kentwood, Louisiana. “I am so emotional tonight,” her beaming mom Lynne told People. “We are so proud of her,” her father Jamie agreed. The newly minted songstress took to her twitter last night to show appreciation to her supporters “Just wanna thank all my amazing friends and family for coming out tonight!!!” Sadly elder sister Brit is currently on tour in Europe and was unable to attend. But will there be a duet between the two Spears Sisters in the future? We hope!

Now there’s the love right there! That’s Britney Spears, her younger son, Jayden James, sister Jamie Lynn and her daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge , mother Lynne and boyfriend, Jason Trawick all cheering on Brit-Brit’s eldest son, Sean Preston, from the bleachers at his baseball game in Calabasas, California (papa Kevin Federline coaches Seans’ Little League team). Now look us straight in the
eyes screen and tell us that isn’t the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. And we know some of you are going to write in and crucify us for cooing over something that’s as normal as families coming out to watch a game. But this is the Spears family (plus boyfriend). There’s nothing normal about their lives. So when they attempt something as cute as this, we’re going to give them props. Okay?

Heads-up, Cyrus parents!!! 10-year-old Noah Cyrus was spotted hand-in-hand with big sis Miley this weekend in Burbank, CA, dressed similarly in a mismatched ensemble that only admiration could inspire. If the last ten years have taught us anything, it’s that the minute little girls start idolizing their rowdy celebrity sisters, partying and pregnancy are hot on their underaged heels.
Jamie Lynn Spears tagged along with Britney to the 2002 Teen Choice Awards and – bang! – gave birth to a baby girl in June 2008, at the young age of 17. Weathered beyond her 16 years, Ali Lohan has been photographed accompanying notorious party animal Lindsay everywhere from LA to Paris. We’re all for some sibling bonding, but in Hollywood, the little ones inevitably feel the need to bust out of their sister’s shadow.
“Noie” already mimics Miley on YouTube and dons raunchy Halloween costumes, but we’re hoping she defies the odds and resists racy mobile pics, stripper poles, and too-intimate Vanity Fair spreads with father Billy Ray. Fingers crossed! [Photos: Getty Images, Splash News Online]
Pics of the Cyrus, Spears, and Lohan sisters below.
Miley Cyrus‘ parents Billy Ray and Tish have been warning their 15-year-old daughter to be careful with her 20-year-old boyfriend Justin Gaston and not end up a teenage mother like Jamie-Lynn Spears. Following a recent awkward moment when Billy Ray ran into his teenage daughter making out with her underwear model boyfriend, Dad had a serious talk with Miley. “I told her in no uncertain terms that her career would be over if something were to happen,” Billy Ray allegedly told a friend. “I think I made an impression on her – at least, I hope so.”
