You’d be forgiven for not knowing who Jamie Lynn Spears is.

At 16 years of age Jamie Lynn Spears fell pregnant to her then boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.

Britney’s little sister was an adorable Nickelodeon star back then and the pregnancy was a “complete and total shock,” she told OK! magazine at the time.

What she received next could only be described as a barrage of horrible comments, saying things like her career was over and that Nickelodeon “must be furious”.

She decided she need to separate from her child star career and grow up out of the limelight while she gave birth to her daughter, Maddie.

But now she’s back – and ready to begin the next chapter of her life.

She’s telling her story in a TLC special called Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out.
