Dancing With the Stars is about to unveil its newest season, and it looks to be a fun one. The new cast includes some notable names like Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino, Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Alyson Hannigan and others. Also among them, is Jamie Lynn Spears, the former teen star ready to show her stuff on the show.
While she’s a bigger name than others in the cast, there are a few things some folks may not know about Britney Spears’s younger sister. From her age to her personal life, here are some details to know about Spears.
Who is Jamie Lynn Spears?
The final of three children, Jamie Lynn Spears grew up in the shadow of her older sister, Britney. She made her acting debut in 2002’s Crossroads, playing the younger version of Britney’s character. That led her to be cast in the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show All That, where she stayed until 2004.
Jamie Lynn then landed her own series, Zoey 101, which ran three seasons. In 2011, Spears began a country music career with a few albums. She’s returned to acting with a recurring role in the Netflix series Sweet Magnolias and a reunion movie, Zoey 102.
Jamie Lynn Spears age
Jamie Lynn was born on April 4, 1991, making her 32 years old. That makes her three years older than her Dancing partner, Alan Bersten, although Spears looks fabulous.

Jamie Lynn Spears height
Jamie Lynn stands at five feet and five inches, a good height for dancing. She’s shown it in her past TV work and performances, so she can use it well for the show. Notably, Spears is five inches shorter than Bersten, which should make their performances interesting to watch.
Is Jamie Lynn Spears married?
Spears sparked controversy in 2007 when, just as Zoey 101 was ending, she became pregnant at just 16 years old by boyfriend Casey Aldridge. They were engaged as Spears gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge. However, the engagement fell through.
Spears then married Jamie Winston in 2014, and the couple remain together today. The pair had a second daughter in 2018.
Do Jamie Lynn and Britney Spears get along?
Close when they were younger, Jamie Lynn and Britney had a falling out in 2011 when Britney accused Jamie Lynn of being involved in the fight regarding Britney’s conservatorship. Jamie Lynn denied it, with the pair taking shots at each other.
Thankfully, it looks like the sisters have patched things up with word. Britney even visited Jamie Lynn on set, so hopefully is there to cheer her sister on in this new season of Dancing With the Stars.
Dancing With the Stars premieres Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 8/7c on ABC and Disney+.
