Jamie Lynn Spears, the younger sister of superstar Britney has announced her engagement online with a photo of her sparkly diamond ring.

The Zoey 101 actress has been with her partner James Watson since 2010 and they look over the moon about the decision in their Instagram photos online.

Spears seems especially proud of her man and is in love with the ring that he choose. The 21-year-old star tweeted a picture of diamond ring and followed it up with a tweet using the hashtag "#hedidgood".

This is the first marriage for the Nickelodeon actress after she called off her engagement to former boyfriend Casey Aldridge back in 2009. 

Spears courted controversy during her relationship to Aldridge when she announced that she was pregnant with his child aged 16 and there was a lot of talk in the media at the time that Jamie Lynn was "glamorisng" teen pregnancy.

It all seemed to work out well in the end though and her daughter Maddie was born in 2008.

At the moment, Jamie Lynn splits her time between L.A and Nashville, Tennessee where she is trying to follow in her sister's footsteps and launch a career in music.
