Jamie Lynn Spears On Being A Teen Mom: Why She’s Worth Listening To

By  | 

twitter jamie lynn spears 290512Jamie Lynn Spears. Most people at my age and stage know her simply as Britney Spears‘ little sister. Sure, Jamie was making a name for herself on Nickelodeon, but I think people of all ages really started to take notice in 2007 when, at age 16, she announced she was pregnant with boyfriend Casey Aldridge‘s baby. Remember: this was before Teen Mom infiltrated our TV screens and, well, people were dying to see how it would all play out.

Fast forward five years and Jamie – now 21, single and mom to little girl Maddie – has resurfaced with a big feature in Glamour magazine. Titled “The Last Time Anyone Heard From Me, I Was 16 and Pregnant,” Jamie writes candidly about what it was like to find herself 16 and pregnant – and in the public spotlight. It’s a touching piece by someone who was forced to grow up quickly and, I must say, Jamie comes across as a really down-to-earth young mom with some confessions and revelations that are definitely worth listening to. Click through to see what she has to say.

    I read her article on and I have to say that I have a tremendous amount of respect for her. She did the cover so that there wouldnt be paparazzi around all the time printing stupid “is she or isn’t she” articles and she dropped into anonymity to raise her baby. It was a tough situation but she seems to be really focused on her education, work, and being a good parent and co parent with her ex.

    Jamie Lynn was never into the spotlight the way that Britney was. I’ve heard a persistent rumor that she kept the baby in order to get out of her contract with Nickelodeon. I’m not sure her “fading into anonimity” is anything more than what she wanted in the first place, not some brave decision she made for her child. Of course, I can’t speak to the veracity of that bit of gossip, but again, it is very persistent.
