The 1981 born female celebrity is the second child and first girl in the Spears family. You know how it can be when there is a super celebrity in the family, everyone else sort of become less talked about. The thing is Britney was not always a pop princess. She had a normal childhood experience in Kentwood Louisiana.
This article is to give you all there is to know about the other four Spears that are not always mentioned. These people were there before any love relationship or fame began.
James Parnell Spears (father)
Date of Birth: July 7, 1952
Zodiac Sign: Cancer
James was once a construction contractor. He married Lynne Irene Bridge in 1975 and together they have three kids including Britney Spears. Several years down the line, things began to get rocky in his marriage. This strain led to their May 2002 divorce but they got back together gladly.
In 2008, James put his daughter under his indefinite ‘conservatorship. This guidance first started off as an order from the court but it seems like it might be for her entire life time. Things actually seem to have been more organized since her father’s “reign”.
Lynne Irene Spears (mother)
Date of Birth: May 4, 1955
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
As much as Brit was not born a star, she had some qualities that were always there since she was a toddler. One of these is her love for singing. She started singing and dancing since she was three and at 8, she was about to take a step further into her dreams.
In the 1990s when Brit was 8, she travelled with her mother Lynne for an audition to be a cast in the Mickey Mouse Club.

She was rejected but met a New York City talent agent who suggested they got her enrolled in a Professional Arts School. All the while Lynne was present, she even had to move temporarily to New York with Jamie-Lynn in support of her daughter’s budding career.
When an offer came in June 1997 for Britney to join the female pop group Innosense, Lynne went to her lawyer friend for his professional counsel. All through her daughter’s career, Lynne was ever ready to give a helping hand as often as she could.
Lynne Irene is an American author, a Christian and a former grade school teacher. Two of her books were co-written with Brit. They are Heart to Heart (published in 2000) and the 2001 novel A Mother’s Gift that was later adapted into the TV movie Brave New Girl. She also authored a Memoir on how life is when you are constantly in the tabloids. She opened and operated her own day care later as her fame grew thanks to her children.
Bryan James Spears (brother, born to Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears)
Date of Birth: April 19, 1977
Zodiac Sign: Aries
Bryan is the first child and only son of the Spears family. He is an average film and TV producer but his sister’s fame have rubbed off on him. He is often seen on tabloids and with media attention thanks to his high profile family. His mother, Lynne thought she might lose him as an infant because he was born with a lung infection but he recovered in no time.
He is a graduate of Park-lane Academy and South-eastern Louisiana Uni. As his sister’s fame grew, he had to step in to make sure the wealth was preserved and kept in the family. Bryan is now a trustee for his sister Brit’s estate. Most of his movie productions are centred on his sister and her career.
In 2009, Bryan married Graciella Sanchez and together they have a daughter Sophia (born 2011).
Jamie-Lynn Spears (sister, born to Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears)

Jamie is the last child in the Spears family and is an actress and country singer. Since she was a child, there was a soft spot in her heart for dance, acting and singing though she is quite shy. Her debut on-screen role was in Crossroads (2002).
At the age of 17, Jamie gave birth to her first child, Maddie Briann Aldridge (born June 19, 2008) whom she had with her ex-boyfriend Casey Aldridge. She never married Casey and they split after a while. On March 14 2014, J Lynn got married to her boyfriend of three years, Jamie Watson and they are still together happily.
