According to reports published online Tuesday, pregnant teen actress Jamie Lynn Spears has been showing off an alleged engagement ring to friends around her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana, and that she and beau Casey Aldridge are going to get hitched this summer.

And while a rep for the former Zoey 101 star would neither officially confirm nor deny the rumor to OK!, a wedding would be in line with what Casey’s great-uncle, Pastor Odus Jackson of Galilee Baptist Church, recently told OK!. "They are fully committed to each other," explained Odus. "He wants to propose to her and get married!”

However, some friends of Jamie Lynn have also told OK! that Brit’s little sister had been wavering on the subject of walking down the aisle and was hoping instead to get her career back on track after she gives birth in June.

In the months since announcing in an exclusive interview with OK! that she was expecting, Jamie Lynn has maintained a relatively low profile around her hometown, finishing her high school education in private and spending her free time with Casey.

Stay tuned to OK! as this story develops.
