Jamie Lynn Spears Talks To OK About Being Pregnant

Jamie Lynn Talks About Her (Admittedly) Shocking Pregnancy

Yesterday we were totally taken off guard by the news that 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant, and now we have some details from her surprising (and probably lucrative) exclusive interview with OK! Magazine. It sounds like she wasn't expecting the news, and even kept it to herself to process for a while before telling anyone. Plus, she's planning to raise her child in Louisiana so he or she can "have a normal family life." Maybe she learned something from Brit after all? Here are highlights from the interview:

  • On learning the news: "It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected...I was in complete and total shock and so was he...As soon as I found out for sure from the doctor, I took two weeks to myself where I didn't tell anybody...Only one of my friends knew because I needed to work out what I would do for myself before I let anyone's opinion affect my decision. Then I told my parents and my friends. I was scared, but I had to do what was right for me."
  • Lynne on her daughter's pregnancy: "I didn't believe it because Jamie Lynn's always been so conscientious. She's never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby."
  • On premarital sex (why even ask): "I definitely don't think it's something you should do; it's better to wait, but I can't be judgmental because it's a position I put myself in."

Still, wow. Also, Jamie Lynn was supposedly seen going to see Juno in NYC on Monday. How appropriate. In related news, Lynne Spears' parenting book has been "delayed indefinitely." Um, surprise? Britney seems like she's still in denial and I will say that I can't wait to read the rest of this interview — still in serious shock from the news.

I think they will fire her from the show and end it, or with the strike they will be on break until she is back.. She is prob almost 5 months along, if u look at pics she has been wearing baggy shirts for awhile now...

This just makes me so sad. I hope that the money goes to making the child and Jamie Lynn's life a good one. She is definitely getting a leg up on some of the other 16 year olds who get pregnant. I don't know any that have been paid a million for their baby pictures.

Admittedly, Britney and the family as a whole seem to be completely wacko and dysfunctional, but the fact that Jamie-Lynn is pregnant doesn't mean that she is a failure. How she handles being a mom determines who and what she is. Let's all hope that she doesn't follow her sister!!!!

I agree, CM213! I hope this story is a wake-up call for parents who are or act oblivious to how sexually active teenagers are today. If anything good comes out of the OK! article, it would be that parents would take more time to talk to their kids about sex and consequences.

I don't know, Jamie-Lynn may have been raised up in a questionable environment with maybe parent's that didn't always have her best interests at stake, but if every 16 year old having sex got pregnant, this wouldn't be news. Accidents happen, and her people could have easily made the problem disappear so to speak (that sounds horrible just typing it), but I do give her kudos for making such a brave and mature decision to have the baby...I just hope she has a level enough head on her shoulders to handle it. I'm not a fan of the magazine-whoring for the announcement, however...but I wish her the best of luck...

Sad. ...maybe this will actually help some young girls not to have sex so young. in this world... i doubt it. so kill me for being cynical.

It was a shock for both of them? I thought by the age of 16 you'd realize that screwing can get your pregnant.

i think it's sad that people are judging her for being pregnant at 16. not that i'm condoning having sex at an early age and getting pregnant, but people make mistakes. a lot of our mistakes go unnoticed and we don’t learn from them. then there is the mistake that is unavoidable and ruin everything we have already planned. the issue is not people make mistakes, it's what we do after we make them. if she wasn't famous or britney's sister, no one will make a big deal about this. keisha castle hughes was 16 when she got pregnant and was an Oscar-nominated actress. solange knowles got married on feb 2004 because she was pregnant at 17 and by october 2007 she was divorced. no one made a big deal about that. get over it. it happened. no need to make the girl feel like sh*t about the situation. she's not the first 16 years old to get pregnant.
