Jamie Lynn Spears feels "very blessed" to have her newborn daughter Maddie Briann.
The 17-year-old actress - who gave birth to Maddie, her first child with fiance Casey Aldridge, on June 19 - says the delivery happened with no problems, and she is stunned by how good Maddie has been.
She said: "They'd told me it would be an eight-to-12-hour labour, but I was ready to have the baby in three to four hours, I had a perfect pregnancy and a perfect delivery. I was very blessed.
"She is very good. She'll feed every two or three hours. When she wakes up in the middle of the night, I'll feed her and she goes right back to sleep. There's no screaming and crying.
"We have a routine, and I love routines. I've worked one out with her, and we're happy going about our little life!"
Jamie Lynn - the sister of troubled pop star Britney Spears - also revealed 19-year-old Casey was with her throughout the natural birth.
She added to America's OK! magazine: "Once I got into the delivery room, my doctor was just so calm and so good it was not bad at all. I was just talking to Casey. And you know what's so weird? I was asking him if he was OK. We were both so excited."
