Jamie Lynn Spears delivered a baby girl this morning, People magazine. The baby was named Maddie Briann, according to the magazine. A source said she was born t 9:30 a.m. at a hospital in Mississippi, near her Louisiana hometown.

Since announcing her pregnancy in December, Britney's little sister has retreated from the bright lights of Hollywood. She became engaged in March to the baby's father, Casey Aldridge.

The couple recently purchased a three-bedroom home in Liberty, Miss., where Aldridge went to high school.

A message left at the Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center where Spears gave birth to the baby was not immediately returned Thursday and the family could not immediately be reached for comment.

The younger Spears lives near Liberty with Aldridge, 19, and has been seen around the small south Mississippi town often as her pregnancy became more apparent. Her family owns a home across the state line in Kentwood, La.

Spears announced her pregnancy through an article in OK! Magazine and was expected to receive a large payday for exclusive pictures of the newborn.
