Jamie Lynn Spears Acknowledges “Motherhood Is One of the Hardest Jobs” – Meet Her 2 Kids
Sure, she may be best known for her days at PCA – which will soon be revisited in the “Zoey 101” sequel movie – but to her kids, Jamie Lynn Spears is just Mom. While at the time of its announcement, her pregnancy was seen as a scandal, the then-16-year-old treated the situation with grace. In her October 2020 cover story for Nylon, Spears recalled her vanishing act to rural Mississippi as a purposeful tactic meant to keep her out of the public eye. “So, I got me a little house. I put a big gate up around it, and I was like, ‘I’m going to stay here, raise my baby, and figure this out because this is real life. I’ve put myself in this situation, I’m not condoning it or saying it’s right, but these are the cards that I have to play,'” she said.
Now, Spears is the mom of two beautiful girls, Maddie and Ivey, both of whom you can find all over her social media. In May, the “Sweet Magnolias” star took a moment to pay tribute to moms around the world while acknowledging some of the challenges of parenthood. “I know motherhood is one of the hardest [jobs] at times, and how the mother/child relationships can be really complicated as well. I really try to not take any of it for granted though, even when the kids or my mom are making me lose my mind🤪,” she wrote on Instagram. “I know there are so many who don’t get to celebrate Mother’s Day with their mamas, and I know there are so many who are trying so hard and would give anything to become a mother. So, I am sending all my love to all of you no matter where you are on your motherhood journey and no matter what it looks like, bc not one is the same. God bless all the MAMAS.”
