Although this singer-actress started out riding the sequined coattails of her older sister, pop superstar Britney, Jamie-Lynn Spears managed to carve out her own career. She appeared in a few of her sister's projects before landing a spot on Nickelodeon's juvenile improvisational sketch-comedy series All That. After the show ended, the network gave Spears her own vehicle, the popular tween-oriented sitcom Zoey 101. In 2007, the 16-year-old stunned when she announced that she and her then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge were expecting their first child. Her daughter, Maddie Briann Aldridge, was born in 2008. In 2010, Spears ended her relationship with Aldridge.
