As Jamie Lynn Spears begins down the road of motherhood, she’s safe in the knowledge that her mom, Lynne Spears, is there to guide her along the path and even lend a helping hand when needed.
OK! recently sat down with Lynne to talk about the birth of her third grandchild and how she plans to be there for her 17-year-old daughter.
How proud are you of the way Jamie Lynn handled the pregnancy?
She’s been totally responsible. She is an old soul and very wise at such a young age.
As she was getting closer to her due date, what were your biggest concerns for her?
We have a history of difficult labors, and I didn’t want her to be terrified and never want to have another baby because mine were traumatic. I really worried about that, but my goodness, she just flew right on through it.
Describe that first moment when you saw Jamie Lynn, Maddie and Casey together.
Oh, my god. That is one of your most precious moments ever. Just that sight. It is indescribable.
What do your grandkids call you?
I started out being Nonnie, but it turned into Me-Ma.
What kind of mom is Jamie Lynn going to be?
A very good mom. She’s warm and nurturing. And the most fun time will be when she’s the soccer mom, the carpool mom. That was the most fun I had as a mother.
You don’t live very far away from Jamie Lynn. Are you planning to babysit?
It’s too soon for that yet with an itty-bitty baby, but I’ll go over as often as she wants and help with the dishes or the laundry. I’m always ready for my phone call.
