It’s been a trying 2008 for Britney Spears and her little sister Jamie Lynn Spears. The older Spears sister made headline after headline for her erratic behavior and ongoing legal and custody battles, while her teenage sibling shocked the world with the news that she and boyfriend Casey Aldridge are expecting their first child together. Making matters even worse, the sisters had to face their toughest times without each other.

Until now.

OK! has confirmed that Britney is indeed planning to travel to her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana, this weekend to celebrate with Jamie Lynn at her May 3 baby shower.

This bittersweet reunion will mark the first time that Brit and her Zoey 101-starring sister have seen each other in person since last fall, when Sam Lutfi was ostensibly in charge of the pop superstar’s life and actively driving a wedge between her and her family.
