MCCOMB, Miss. -- Two days after giving birth, Jamie Lynn Spears left the hospital and headed home with daughter Maddie Briann, according to reports.
The 17-year-old new mom left the Mississippi Southwest Regional Medical Center in McComb, Mississippi, early Saturday morning.
Jamie Lynn’s fiancé, Casey Aldridge and her mother Lynne Spears were seen leaving the hospital in a white Range Rover, with what was believed to be Jamie Lynn in the backseat.
The vehicle received a police escort as it left the hospital en route for the Spears family home in Kentwood, Louisiana.
However, things weren’t quite what they appeared, according to OK! Magazine, as the new parents pulled a fast one on the awaiting paparazzi.
While some reports indicated the new mom and her newborn were taken to Serenity – the Kentwood, Louisiana estate owned by Britney, OK! Magazine reported Casey Aldridge and Lynne Spears instead served as a decoy to the paparazzi as they headed to Kentwood.
Instead, according to OK!, Jamie Lynn and Maddie were taken to Liberty, Mississippi, where Jamie Lynn purchased a home last month.
While paparazzi snapped Casey and Lynne driving away with what appeared to be Jamie Lynn in the backseat on Saturday, it was actually a decoy in the backseat wrapped in a white sheet and not Jamie Lynn.
According to OK!, after the staged decoy, mom and baby made their exit in private, driven separately by private security guards and escorted by state troopers back to their home in Liberty.
The “Zoey 101” star gave birth gave birth around 9:30 AM local time on Thursday. Contrary to previous reports, OK! Magazine confirmed Jamie Lynn did not have a C-section.
Jamie Lynn’s big sis, Britney, her father Jamie and brother Bryan all flew in from Los Angeles to be present for Maddie’s arrival.
When Britney returned to Los Angeles on Friday evening, chaos ensued as the pop star’s entourage was reportedly involved in a scuffle with a member of the paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport.
According to the Associated Press, between 30 and 35 photographers swarmed Britney’s vehicle outside the terminal before a bodyguard pushed a camera into a photographer’s face.
Britney was left unscathed and was able to leave the airport safely.
