Casey Aldridge, boyfriend of Jamie Lynn Spears and father to her 10-month-old baby, has been released from a Mississippi hospital, just five days after flipping over in his pickup truck while partying with friends at a late-night bachelor party.

“Casey got home today, and he’s doing well,” a source tells People. “He’ll have to rest for the next few weeks. He’s still got a headache, but everything looks good.”

Aldridge, who celebrated his 20th birthday Thursday, was taken to a small, rural hospital in Vidalia, La., and later transferred to the larger University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, where he spent time in the ICU.

He suffered a head injury that, while significant, ultimately required no surgery and apparently caused no permanent damage, the source says.

Jamie Lynn Spears has been at his side since the incident, even riding in the ambulance with Aldridge on the way to the Mississippi hospital.

“They’re both at the house in Liberty (Miss.),” the source says. Spears’ mother, Lynne, has been keeping the couple’s baby, Maddie Briann, “for most of the time during this whole episode, but I guess the baby will be going back home.”

“Now Jamie Lynn will have two babies to care for.”

Casey Aldridge had been attending a bachelor party for one of his cousins who is getting married next week. He is the best man, “but I don’t know if he’ll be up to that or not. We’ll just have to wait and see,” the source says.
