Lynne Irene Spears (née Bridges) (born in McComb, Mississippi on May 4, 1955) is an author and the mother of pop singer Britney Spears and teen actress Jamie Lynn Spears.

She has an older brother, Barry "Sonny" Bridges (born 1951) and older sister Sandra Bridges Covington (1947-2007). In 1975, Lynne married James "Jamie" Spears (born July 7, 1952), the father of her three children. She opened and worked in her own day care in the Spears’ hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana, until Britney, then age 11, became a member of the new Mickey Mouse Club for the 1993-1994 season.

Biographers of Britney Spears cite Lynne Spears as the main driving force and support behind Britney's early career, however more recently in her memoir Through The Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World; Spears has gone on the record about her daughters rise to stardom. In that she was not a pushy "stagemom" as the media make her out, but as the number one supporter of her daughters fight to achieve her biggest dreams.
