I’m A Celebrity fans were shocked to realize the bizarre reason behind the name Jamie Lynn Spears.
The American singer’s name is a combination of her father and mother’s first names: Jamie Spears, 71, and Lynne Spears, 68.
Her famous sister Britney, 41, is estranged from their father and the two are believed to be working on her relationship with their mother, but Jamie Lynn, 32, has never denounced her parents.
The strange revelation has led to TV fans mocking the star on social media, as one user wrote: ‘Jamie Lynn Spears and her husband having the same first name will always be funny to me like, when they introduce themselves they do something like this like ‘Hello, my name is Mr Jamie Watson and this is Mrs Jamie Watson’?’
Another wrote: ‘Jamie Lynne is the most country name ever, her dad’s name is Jamie and her mum’s name is Lynn.’

It comes after the actress broke down in tears again before threatening to quit the show after spending just three days in the jungle on Tuesday.
Pop superstar Britney’s younger sister was left heartbroken after failing to be reunited with her luxury item, a photo of her children.
After a mini-challenge that saw her campmates sheepishly return without the photo, Jamie Lynn stormed into the bush telegraph and declared she was ready to leave the jungle.
Sobbing, she said: “I just want to see my kids,” leaving stunned viewers to ask whether the American, mother of daughters Maddie, 15, and Ivy, five, had ever seen the show she signed up for.
Earlier in the episode, she confided in her co-stars Sam Thompson and Danielle Harold for emotional support.
Jamie Lynn broke down in tears after admitting she feels ‘so emotionally weak’ at camp.
Speaking to Danielle and Sam, she said: ‘I don’t know how I’m so emotionally weak.’
Danielle kept her spirits up and told her, “You are so strong. This is cool baby, cool. So tough. It is not easy.’

Jamie Lynn added: ‘Why do I cry so much? Josie[Gibson}hasababyathome…'[Gibson}hasababyathome…'[Gibson}heefteenbabythuis…'[Gibson}hasababyathome…’
Sam consoled: ‘It’s important to remember you’re from a completely different continent, you don’t know anyone here, it’s hard. It is very difficult.’
Danielle added: “Look at the s*** you’ve been through in your life, right? This, a little rain in the jungle, nothing.”
Jamie Lynn responded, “But at least I could go home to my babies every night, you know? That’s it, that’s all I need in life. It feels a bit overwhelming. They’re not even close.
‘I just have to do it. I don’t know why I’m such a baby.’
Sam added: “I get it man, I have two cats at home – Albus and Cedric – little fluffy guys. Do you know what I mean? So I get it. No kids, but I get it.”
Danielle joked: ‘Let it out Sam…’
Later Jamie Lynn went to the Bush Telegraph and added positively: ‘You let your campmates pull you up and you say, ‘I can do this, I can do this.’
Jamie Lynn’s parents married in 1976 and had their first child, Bryan Spears, in 1977.
Lynne filed for divorce in 1980, but by 1981 they had reconciled and welcomed their first daughter Britney – ten years later they had Jamie Lynn.
