The 30-year-old’s future in-laws recently put their Long Island home on the market, and Spears was not happy about it.

“NOOOOO. I love this house!” she tweeted last month, along with a link to a Newsday story about the sale of the five-bedroom home.

A source told E! News Britney “loves the house so much. It’s a peaceful haven for her, a place where she can get away and relax.”

Hope she can still get some R&R in Maui!

Jamie Lynn's Parents "Adore" The Father-To-Be

casey.jpgCasey Aldridge has been close to the Spears family, as both a hometown boy dating youngest daughter Jamie Lynn and as a buffer standing between the teenage actress and the pressures of Hollywood.

“He took amazing care of Jamie Lynn,” a source close to the family tells PEOPLE. “Anything ever went wrong, he always comforted her. He took care of her.”

Jamie Lynn and her mother say that Aldridge is the father of the 16-year-old Zoey 101 star’s baby.

Aldridge, who is believed to be 18 or 19, has stayed largely out of the Hollywood spotlight, only occasionally accompanying Jamie Lynn to Hollywood events.

He grew up in Liberty, Miss., about 30 miles from the Spears family home base in Kentwood, La., and played high school baseball and football (he’s listed in a sports directory as a lean 6’1″, 165 lbs).

Recently, he has lived in Southern California and was a fixture at the condo where Jamie Lynn stayed with her mother, Lynne, while filming the Nickelodeon series Zoey 101. Aldridge drove her to the Valencia set, near Los Angeles, every day and stayed there while she worked, impressing Lynne and Jamie Lynn’s father, Jamie.

“Jaime talks about how he really likes Casey because he’s a great guy,” the Spears family source says. “Lynne really likes him, too. He’s a good kid, cares a lot about Jamie Lynn. They both adore Casey.”

The pregnancy, a source close to Aldridge says, was a surprise.

“I’m sure it was a shock to him,” the source says. “He has all sorts of plans for his future. He wants to start his own business, maybe get a degree and make something of himself.”

The source says that Aldridge will take responsibility for his actions.

“He’s a stand-up guy, and he will take care of the baby,” the source says. “He is not the type to let her deal with it on her own. He will be there in any way he can. … I know a baby wasn’t in his plans for right now, but he’ll do what he has to do, and he’ll be a good father. He really will.”

Why is everyone reporting he’s 19? As far as I know, he’s only 17, a year older than her.

Lynne Spears' Parenting Book Delayed Indefinately

Lynne Spears’s book about raising her famous daughters Britney and Jamie Lynn has been put on hold, the publisher confirms to PEOPLE.

“The book is delayed indefinitely. It’s delayed, not cancelled,” says a spokeswoman for Thomas Nelson, which publishes inspirational books and Bibles.

It had been scheduled for a spring 2008 release and was put on hold last week, says the rep. On Tuesday, news hit that 16-year-old Jamie Lynn is pregnant with her boyfriend’s child.

Publishers’ Weekly described the book as “Lynne Spears’s personal story of raising high-profile children while coming from a low-profile Louisiana community.”

The publisher declined to comment on whether the focus of the book would change in light of the pregnancy announcement.

“We are standing behind Lynn at this time and understand that she needs time with her family – we support that,” says the spokeswoman.

More Info About Jamie Lynn's Pregnancy

Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old “Zoey 101″ star and sister of Britney, tells OK! magazine that she’s pregnant and that the father is her longtime boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.

“It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” she says. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.”

Spears is 12 weeks along (3 months) and initially kept the news to herself when she learned of the pregnancy from an at-home test and subsequent doctor visit, she told the celebrity magazine, which hits stands in New York on Wednesday and the rest of the country by Friday.

“As soon as I found out for sure from the doctor, I took two weeks to myself where I didn’t tell anybody,” she says. “Only one of my friends knew because I needed to work out what I would do for myself before I let anyone’s opinion affect my decision. Then I told my parents and my friends. I was scared, but I had to do what was right for me.”

Spears broke the news to her mother, Lynne, just before Thanksgiving, the magazine says.

“She was very upset because it wasn’t what she expected at all,” Spears says. “A week after, she had time to cope with it and became very supportive.”

Lynne Spears, already grandmother to Britney’s young sons, says: “I didn’t believe it because Jamie Lynn’s always been so conscientious. She’s never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby.”

She says her actress daughter, the telegenic heroine of the popular Nickelodeon series “Zoey 101,” has known Aldridge for years and began dating him in high school.

Jamie Lynn plans to raise the baby in her home state of Louisiana – “so it can have a normal family life.”

The third season of “Zoey 101″ wraps up Jan. 4.

“I haven’t spoken to (Nickelodeon) personally, but they have always been so great to me over the past years and have given me so many opportunities.”

What message does she want to send to other teens about premarital sex?

“I definitely don’t think it’s something you should do; it’s better to wait,” she says. “But I can’t be judgmental because it’s a position I put myself in.”
