Jamie Lynn Spears, the teen star of hit TV show Zoey 101 and younger sister of Britney, has announced she is pregnant.

The 16-year-old told a magazine she is expecting a baby with her boyfriend Casey Aldridge.

The actress said she was "shocked" to find out that she was pregnant, and had kept the news a secret for two weeks.

But Jamie Lynn said she eventually told her mum, who was being very supportive. She plans to bring up the baby in Louisiana, America.
