She was 16 years old at that time, and the announcement caused a huge controversy. Many people view the issue as “glorifying” teenage pregnancy. Eight years later, Spears juggles her motherhood along with her career as a singer and songwriter.

Jamie Lynn Spears: “She Is A Sweetheart”
Last June 2016, Jamie Lynn Spears opened up on how her life changed when Maddie came into her life. She called Maddie her “best accomplishment” ever.
“She is my sweetheart. I feel like I raised her with a lot of honesty and love. Maddie is a girl who is happy and content, and that’s more than a parent could ask for,” Spears said in her interview with People. In addition to that, Spears revealed how she and husband Jamie Watson raise Maddie together.
“We are strict on Maddie, like on what she eats. But it is my husband who is strict with almost everything. I’d like to say I am cool at times but my daughter is at the age that cringes whenever I do something weird for her. Like, if I dance around with her and her friends, she’d say ‘Mom, don’t do that!'” Spears admitted.
We hope Jamie Lynn Spears daughter will have a speedy recovery despite her critical condition.
