Calling Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears has left the building.

The teen mom’s former Zoey 101 costar Victoria Justice says she’d love to catch up with her old pal one of these days.

“I would have called her, but she shut off her phone,” Justice said at Monday night’s premiere of MTV’s The American Mall musical TV movie.

Justice says that Spears hightailed it out of town once the Nickelodeon series ended and that they haven’t spoken since.

“She moved to Louisiana right after the show wrapped,” Justice said. “She had to turn off her phone or change numbers, because somehow her number got out.”

So, Jamie Lynn, if you’re reading this, you’ve got a friend who’d love to hear from you.

Jamie Lynn Has “Perfect Pregnancy,” Ages Rapidly

Well, here it is: the highly anticipated, million dollar OK! cover featuring Jamie Lynn Spears and her little bundle of joy, Maddie Briann.

Inside, she gushes about the awesomeness of being a mama (but that doesn’t mean you all should rush to be one, kids), fiancé Casey’s natural dad instincts and even her birthing suite.

It’s all very magical, but we’re stuck on how old she looks in this picture. Did they purposefully dye her hair gray to make her look less “teenage Nickelodeon star” and more “responsible older lady who’s ready to raise some babies”?

Jamie Lynn’s Baby Has Full Head of Hair, Daddy’s Toes

Maddie Briann entered the world with a full head of hair, her daddy’s toes and the world’s most famous aunt waiting just outside the door.

New mom Jamie Lynn Spears, daddy Casey Aldridge and baby Maddie were catching up on rest Saturday following the birth Thursday at a hospital in McComb, Miss., near the Spears family home across the state line in Kentwood, La., a source tells people.

Jamie Lynn was discharged from the hospital overnight Friday, with the new arrival getting an early education in her family’s notoriety: their car had a police escort home.

“They’re doing terrific,” the source says. “The baby’s got 10 fingers and 10 toes … and a full head of hair. She’s long, a tall baby, and she weighs 7 lbs, 11 oz.”

When the baby was born at about 9:30 a.m., Jamie Lynn’s sister, Britney Spears, and the rest of the Spears and Aldridge families were just outside the birthing room in the spacious maternity suite.

The relatives then joined the new family in the birthing room and took turns holding Maddie Briann and commenting on her features. When new grandmother Joyce Aldridge held the baby, she remarked that Maddie “has Casey’s toes,” the source says.

Jamie Lynn, 17, and Casey, 19, intend to get married soon, but no date has been announced. Jamie Lynn recently purchased a home in nearby Liberty, Miss., where she and Casey have been living for about three weeks.

Friends and Family: Jamie Lynn Will Be a ‘Great Mom’

Jamie Lynn Spears’s hometown of Kentwood, La., was buzzing with the news she gave birth, with friends and relatives expressing surprise, relief and confidence the 17-year-old will be a good mother.

“She’s awfully young to be a momma,” says distant cousin Margie Busby. “But that’s what they make [grandmothers] for. They have to help. That’s the way it is with our circle of friends.”

Second cousin Janet Bridges acknowledges, “I didn’t even know she had the baby,” but gives a thumbs up to the baby girl’s name. “Ooh, I like ‘Maddie,'” says Bridges.

The birth was the talk of Kentwood. “I’m really happy for her and her family,” says Jennifer Pike, who works at the corner store where the Spears family often shops. “There will probably be some rough times and some bumpy times, but I wish the best for her. I wish her all the luck in the world.”

“We’re so excited for her,” a family friend tells PEOPLE. “She’ll be a great mom. She’ll be awesome.”

Adds another friend, “She was so excited about having this child. (She was) looking forward to it so much.”

The days have passed slowly for Spears and fiancé Casey Aldridge, who had finished preparing for the baby a few weeks ago. “It seemed like this day would never come,” says a cousin of Aldridge. “They’ve been getting ready, but everything was pretty much done by last month. So they just had to wait.”

Now that Maddie Briann is here, family members hope that Spears and Aldridge are good parents. “It’s easy to have them, but hard to raise them,” says relative Charlie Spears. “I hope she’s healthy, and I hope they raise a good baby.”
