Jamie Lynn Spears and her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, could be one step closer to tying the knot, Access Hollywood has learned.
A source close to the Spears family told Access, getting married "has been [Jamie Lynn's] goal."
She was "dead set from the beginning" and has gone "head-to-head" with her parents over the issue, the source added.
Casey Aldridge has reportedly given Jamie Lynn an engagement ring, which she has been showing off to friends and family in Louisiana and Mississippi, according to People.
Popping the question to Jamie was not an out-of-the-blue proposal from Casey.
"He's been asking all along," the Spears family source told Access.
Additionally, "She's been asking [her parents]" to marry him for some time, and he has repeatedly asked her parents.
No word from the young couple on a possible wedding date.
