Jamie Lynn, now 31, made headlines when she gave birth to Maddie in 2008 at the age of 17 with then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge. The couple later split two years later. The Zoey 101 alum later reflected on her early days as a new mom and said she often felt judged by others.

"I don't feel like a young mom at all now, but I think it's because I had my first daughter so young," she recalled in a 2019 interview with Dopple. "I was insecure at times because I was always the youngest mom in the room."
She continued, "I quickly learned that being a good and competent mother was not about age. I've met some of the most wonderful and amazing moms ranging in age from 20 to 50, so young or old, love is all it's really about."
Finally, Jamie Lynn, who also shares 4-year-old daughter Ivey with husband Jamie Watson, said she's learned not to compare herself to other mothers, recalling that "every child is different and therefore every mother is different." .
