Bryan James Spears (born April 19, 1977) is an American film and television producer. He is the older brother of Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears.
Bryan was born to James Spears and Lynne Irene Spears (née Bridges) on April 19, 1977. He was born with a bacterial lung infection and had to be hooked to an IV before overcoming the infection about a week later. In Lynne's book, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, she recalls how she thought Bryan was going to die and pleaded with God to let him live. He is of English, Maltese, Scottish, Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, Irish, French, and Welsh ancestry.
Bryan's father worked as a construction contractor and his mother worked as a second-grade teacher. The family attended the Kentwood First Baptist Church in Kentwood, Louisiana.
Bryan attended Parklane Academy in McComb, a private Christian school that serves grades K-12. After graduating high school, Bryan attended Southeastern Louisiana University, his mother's alma mater. While attending university, he majored in kinesiology.
Over New Years in 2009, Bryan married Graciella Sanchez, the manager of Jamie Lynn and founder of One Talent Management. The two wed in a small, private ceremony in New Orleans. Sanchez is a graduate of Yale University. Together the two have one daughter, Lexie Spears.
After sister Britney became famous, Bryan started working as a manager for Spears family interests, including acting as producer for a number of sister Jamie's projects.
Before father James gained conservatorship over Britney in 2008, Bryan was paid $200,000 for "services rendered."
