Jamie Lynn Spears’ eldest daughter is embarrassed by her

She told Us Weekly magazine: “My oldest, I think she kind of felt like the old lady thing. She was like, ‘Oh, my God. So, what are you doing?’
“The whole Zoey thing is kind of … My oldest is old. She understands it now. And it’s weird because I was her age, I think, when I started the show or close to her age when I started the show. So it’s pretty surreal to look at it from that point of view, but, you know, she’s a preteen. So anything I do is pretty unacceptable in her eyes. Like, ‘Oh, Mom, please. That again.’ ”
Meanwhile, Jamie Lynn - who also has two-year-old Ivey with her husband Jamie Watson - recently opened up about falling pregnant with Maddie when she was a teenager, which ultimately led to the conclusion of ‘Zoey 101’.
She said: “At the end of the day, you have to stand up for what’s best for you and your baby. I think that’s what people didn’t understand about me and my first pregnancy. Every decision I made came from a place of wanting to do right by [Maddie] and being the best mom that I could be. … I was under a microscope.”
And although her daughter doesn’t care for Jamie Lynn’s work as the titular Zoey Brooks, the actress recently hinted Maddie could take over her role in a ‘Zoey 101’ reboot in the future.
Jamie Lynn explained: "Maybe she could play Zoey when she was younger or something.
"But it's just [hard during] quarantine and all this stuff. I think putting everyone's safety first is what we are trying to do right now.
"And conversations that were started before this have kind of [taken] a slow pace, as everything else in the world."
