Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears, 16, and boyfriend Casey Aldridge are engaged, his cousin, Tina Robinson, confirmed to Us magazine.
“He proposed a few days ago, and she accepted,” Tina told Us magazine.
Tina said that she hadn’t seen a ring and didn’t know whether they would wed before or after Jamie Lynn delivers.
“They probably weren’t expecting [the proposal] to be, like, right now, but with her being pregnant, that really pushed it up,” Tina shared.
Jamie Lynn and Casey, 18, announced they were expecting their first child together in December.
Around the time of their big news, Casey’s uncle, Odus Jackson, 71, told Us magazine that he was “hopeful” for a future wedding.
“It would be something that we could all look forward to in time and that it would not be a forced thing even if it happened,” he said.
Jamie Lynn, star of the Nickelodeon hit Zoey 101, recently got her GED.
She and Casey have been spotted around her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana.
Best wishes to Jamie Lynn and Casey.
