Britney's Sister Jamie Lynn Spears is 16 and Pregnant

By December 19, 2007

Follow me on:

Is actress Jamie Lynn Spears really pregnant at 16? People has confirmed that Britney Spears' little sister Jamie Lynn Spears is only 16 and in fact already pregnant with her first baby.

Jamie Lynn is already 3 months along and the "lucky" father is her boyfriend Casey Aldridge. OK! magazine is reporting that Jamie Lynn and her mother spoke exclusively to the tabloid about the pregnancy. According to People, the folks over at Nickelodeon confirmed the news today.

Did Jamie Lynn learn nothing from her trainwreck sister about the importance of birth control? What about the fact that she's a minor and her boyfriend is 18 years old? My oh my, the Spears sisters need some serious guidance!

Hello Readers,

I am not sure why everyone is focusing on the “children” being trainwrecks! If you want to know why their lives are so tragic, perhaps you to look at the SOURCE…THE PARENTS!! So..do I feel sorry for them? Yes! I feel even more sorry for the children that are being born and raised by the off spring of a woman who may have had more than her share of unpleasant childhood memories.

The bottom line is this..if you raise your children to believe that having unprotected sex is OK as long as your on the pill, this is what you get!

Thanks,

well what we really need to do is pray for Jamie Lynn. Hopfully she will be able to get thru her pregnancy and maybe this will mature her bc being a young parent means sacrifice.

What a shame. She seems really sweet and this will definitely impact her life. It’s a shame she couldn’t see how bad things were going for her sister and be guided into better choices. Despite her looks and her status, she is a child and obviously needed much stronger supervision. Fame isn’t worth this.

I disagree with Sickened. It’s not disgusting. Unsupervised minors with this much power and money are going to have greater temptations. That’s natural for many teens, even those without Jamie’s unique cirucumstances.

I also strongly disagree with Jadee. Jamie is not a bad girl (or at least that can’t be determined by this alone). She does need guidance, however, and she will need a lot more in the days ahead if this is true.

Good luck and all of the Spears should get some counseling.

(12) TennMom says:

I agree with Robert. The Spears sisters are in dire need of guidance. It seems to me that their mother is more concerned with making money off telling the tales of her family’s woes than she is about mothering. I wish Jamie Lynn the best. Being a teenage mom is never easy, so I hope her parents and her sister can put aside their own problems and give her the support she needs.

I used to think that Jamie Lynn was careful about this stuff but I guess not since she had sex at the age of 16!!!!!!

(16) Z says:

Very disrespectful @shutup concerned mom. it shows that you have no respect for ppl older than you. You too have failed victim to society. The fact that the guy is 19 yrs old is a great concern. She’s only 16. There’s no telling how long they’ve been doing whatever. Kids and teenagers cannot make proper judgement calls. I dont care how much money you have, you dont have life experience. Take time slow down and enjoy life while you can. Whether half of you believe it or not, you have it pretty easy right now. Any trouble you have, some of you bring it upon yourself. Respect your elders. Respect yourself and Respect others. You shouldnt congratulate her on being pregnant at 16. Wishing her a safe pregnancy…that’s fine. But no congratulations are in order.

December 19, 2007 at 6:30 pm
(17) Shu says:

This family needs to go away and quit traumatizing others who pay way too much attention to their drama. They do not have the right to keep hurting the children they bring into their selfish lives. They all need to grow up and RIGHT NOW!! They are not important to our society.

THE ONLY REASON EVERYONE IS FOCUSED ON JAMIE IS BECAUSE BRITTNEY IS ALWAYS IN THE NEWS. WHY DIDN’T ANYONE REACT ALL CRAZY WHEN BEYONCE’S LITTLE SISTER BECAME PREGNANT AT 17? THEY HID HER PREGNANCY UNTIL SHE GOT MARRIED, AT LEAST JAMIE PUT HERSELF OUT THERE AND CAME CLEAN, WHICH SHE DIDN’T HAVE TO DO. INSTEAD OF MAKING RUDE COMMMENTS AND PASSING JUDGEMENT, WE NEED TO SUPPORT AND UPLIFT YOUNG PREGNANT TEENS. I’M SURE WE ALL PERSONALLY KNOW AYOUNG WOMAN THAT HAS BECOME PREGNANT AT AN EARLY AGE. FOR GOD’S SAKE WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN LIVES AND LEAVE THE SPEAR’S FAMILY ALONE

geeze what a way to be a role model to younger fans. What are the younger viewers going to think when they find out zoey 101 is postpond or cancelled because the main star of the show is freaking pregnant. ESPECIALLY at the age of 16, what was she thinking!

December 20, 2007 at 8:31 am
(21) Shu says:

Why should we support teenage mothers(that’s a joke in its self, they don’t mother their children, others do it for them)Supporting them just makes them think it’s ok & “oh well” attitude consumes their lives. These girls are growing up in a world where they have access to alot of information and help in order to avoid pregnancy. But are they taking advantage of it? NO!!! The way they behave and excuse their tacky behavior is disgusting and uncalled for.
Some people will excuse anything~~ What about the poor children who this happens too? WOW, won’t it be possible that these kids will grow up with unhealthy complexes with the media in their lives forever. GET A GRIP

(26) Beaters says:

So how did she wind up knocked up? Didn’t she have access to contraceptives? Didn’t he? Is she from a religious whacko family that doesn’t teach their kids about family planning? Abortion not an option?

This is such a non-problem for the rest of us. I never taught my kids to idolize starry types. I did teach them about contraceptives. They all made it past high school without knocking anyone up or getting knocked up. My daughter earned a National Merit Scholarship while on the pill. My eldest son graduated from a big 10 university without knocking anybody up. He knows how to use condoms. Folks, it doesn’t take a PhD to avoid getting pregnant as a teen.

OMG!!! LIKE, FOR REAL!!!! OMG, LIKE ARE YOU LIKE, PREGNANT FOR REAL???? OMG!!!! LIKE ME AND YOU HAVE THE SAME COLOR EYES AND HAIR, AND LIKE, YOU KNOW, OMG!!!! JAMIE, WE MIGHT BE TWINS, OMG!!!! MY FIRST NAME STARTS WITH THE SAME LETTER AS YOURS DOES!!!! OMG!!!!! LIKE CAN I BABYSIT FOR YOU???? OMG!!!! HOW COOL!!!! NOW I AM GOING TO GO PLAY MY IPOD!!!!OMG, I CAN’T BELEIVE I AM TALKING TO JAMIE SPEARS!!!! OMG!!!!!!

Why don’t all of you grow up and quit focusing on the trashy, immoral so-called “celebrities” If you would stop worshipping these little sluts, they would stop acting up.

I really can’t believe what this world is coming to…

Why are we worshipping little sluts like her? Why do our daughters want to be like her? Where are the parents? Nickelodeon should fire her. What kind of role model is she for our children?

She’ll end up just like her “lovely” sister Brittney “the virgin”. Does anyone remember when she said “I’m saving it for marriage”?

Look at Brittney now. She must also be doing meth. Look at the skin on her face lately. She looks like a drug addict from the trailer park.

Someone needs to take Jamie and knock some sense into her.

I’m even sorry I’m wasting my time responding to this, but I never thought that “About” would even lower themselves to report on something this ridiculous.

Come on folks she was shacking up with a 19 year old?
Why isn’t the mom filing rape charges against him?
I believe that fishing for saplings in Louisiana is still a crime.
Now if she was living in Arkansas she would be considered a old maid at 16! Go figure!
Merry Christmas to all.

December 20, 2007 at 2:44 pm
(31) Another concerned mother says:

shut up concerned mom, what are you talking about? There are young men out there that are having to live with the “record” for sex offender because they, TOO, had sex with their girlfriends and the girls were under 18 years of age. Some didn’t even get pregnant, but these young men have to live the rest of their lives with this on their record. Why should this guy get away with it? If he does, why can’t these other young men, who did what he did, and ended up in prison and then out with a record. I don’t agree that there should be exceptions then. I think the law should either clear these other young men’s records or deal with Jamie’s boyfriend the say way..in our state, that is considered Statutory rape..now matter how you put it…

December 20, 2007 at 3:03 pm
(32) Beaters says:

Just as a point of information, the age of consent isn’t the same everywhere. In LA it’s 17, but it hasn’t been established that that is where the alleged offense occurred. There are quite a few states (my own old home state included)where the age of consent is 16 or lower. So, all of those clamoring for the guys head on a pike might want to re-think that.

December 20, 2007 at 3:15 pm
(33) Suzanne in Texas says:

I am in total agreement with “francencia”. Who are WE to judge this girl??? What is done is DONE. PERIOD. I think that Jamie Lynn was very smart and brave to face the comments that she knew would surely come from the majority of people (& most of the comments have come–from what I am reading) people who are very young themselves. You young ladies seem to have no compassion for someone who (obviously) made a mistake.

Think about this: If & when (& you WILL! I promise you) you make a horribly bad decision, would you face the world and tell them about it??? Really, THINK ABOUT THIS!! When the day comes that that happens, would you want such awful comments directed your way?

December 20, 2007 at 3:19 pm
(34) Helen says:

Stop judging this girl! I screwed around when I was 16 years old too (as I’m sure many of you did) and thankfully I didn’t get pregnant. Thank God she is ceeping ooops, I mean keeping the baby; that goes to show that she has some character and may do good in the end.

December 20, 2007 at 3:26 pm
(35) Good Girl says:

You idiots who idolize & defend that piece of garbage make me SICK! She is cheap, common trash, just like her sister & you know what? You can’t blame her 19-year old boyfriend. IF, indeed, he actually IS her boyfriend & not just “one of many” if you know what I mean. These little tramps throw themselves at vulnerable guys, what do you expect? I’ve also noticed that those who defend the cheap skank are barely literate. Oh well, trailer & ghetto trash will stand up for its own, I guess. And we don’t need to be compassionate or pray for her either. She knew what she was getting into & unlike the rest of us who have to WORK for a living & wonder about stuff like bills, possible future homelessness, etc, that worthless little dirtbag has had everything handed to her onn a silver platter. I hope she croaks in childbirth

How about SELF control??

(37) devorahleah says:

This is why “abstinence education” is total nonsense. Once again, we see an example of how teenagers, like it or not, will usually experiment with sex; giving them lots of misinformation and scaring them about “don’t use condoms” isn’t working. I agree that we should teach them to say no, but also, let’s teach them to protect themselves if they decide to say yes.

It’s about being responsible. Young teens should not be having babies– they may think it’s so cute, but it’s a big responsibility. The pro-life advocates who refuse to let sex education be taught insist that abortion and contraception are bad bad bad, and teaching about sex will encourage promiscuous behaviour. Alas, that’s been proved to be a myth over and over. In every generation, young adults and teens do stuff that we as parents wish they wouldn’t. So, will all of the pro-life folks who have worked so hard to ban sex education help the babies once they are born? Probably not. The emphasis seems to be on punishment– make that girl carry that fetus and give birth no matter what. Don’t even teach her objectively about sex education– just teach her to be abstinent, and if she is not abstinent, well then it’s her own fault. Yeah, and then the poor baby ends up suffering. Nobody wins. And it could all be avoided with HONEST and FACTUAL education and preparation.

Last time I checked, it takes two to make a baby – so we really also need to give more information to boys: it’s not macho or manly to get a girl pregnant. Having a kid is a big job and a real man is ready to be a father. If the boy isn’t ready, as most teenage boys are not, encourage him to use a condom. I know some people think such a message is immoral, but is it better to have a large amount of teen pregnancies? I think not.

We send some really confusing messages to young teens about sex, and it’s time we were more consistent. “Choosing life” is great if you are old enough to care for a child. Teens are famous for being impulsive, and telling them to wait and “just say no” is unrealistic. The Religious Right has a lot to answer for: teen pregnancy is going back up again, and use of contraception by teens is declining. I read the Bible as much as anyone, and I love my faith. But I am also a practical person and what the Abstinence Only folks have imposed on the rest of us isn’t working.

In my ideal world, kids would wait till they are adults. In my realistic world, I know many won’t wait so let’s stop with the moralising and teach kids how to protect (and respect) themselves.

(38) Yami says:

I am so proud of her that she took responsibility of her actions, unlike many other women who commit murder by aborting their unborn babies. It is not going to be easy, in life there is always a price to pay, but lets hope that she makes the right choices from now on.

More Teens Losing Virginity at Early Age, Study Claims

By Terry Vanderheyden

NEW YORK, April 6, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) A new survey claims that over 40% of young teens in the US have lost their virginity by the age of 14.

The survey of 2,311 youth was conducted in the city of Baltimore by Dr. Danielle Ompad and colleagues for The New York Academy of Medicine and published in the most recent issue of The Archives of Sexual Behavior. I dont think other cities would be too different, Dr. Ompad told the New York Daily News.

The study group found that 42 percent of the youth surveyed had engaged in vaginal intercourse by the age of 14 a 9 percent increase over 1995 figures reported by the US Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. The average age for initiating vaginal intercourse was 14.8 years.

Dr. Ompad said the findings raise concerns over the potential for a spike in sexually transmitted disease and teen pregnancies.

….

Stop calling her a little slut and go look at your own children. Life happens and Daddy’s Little Angel moves on.

J.L doesn’t need the media and general public calling her down over this. It happens. As long as she deals with it all in a mature and healthy way, and is willing to seek any support she needs to raise a healthy baby… they’ll be fine!

.Get.Over.It.

Who are these morons making comments like “why is about.com reporting on this?” Use your tiny head you idiots and look at the topic of the site. Uh, it’s a celebrity gossip site. The article is about a celebrity. Do the math.

December 20, 2007 at 4:02 pm
(42) Carolyn says:

It is wrong to call her a slut; she got pregnant with a longtime boyfriend—but teen pregnancy is definitely on the rise, and abstinence only sex ed, which is now the norm down her in the Deep South, is making the situation worse by discouraging teens from “being prepared.”

December 20, 2007 at 4:03 pm
(43) Tuatha242 says:

Teenage pregnancy isn’t some new discovery, I didn’t even know who this person was, or why I have received an About Today devoted to this girl. I didn’t think i signed up for About Gossip.com.

Seriously, more important and interesting things are happening in the world..this is NOT one of them!

December 20, 2007 at 4:33 pm
(44) Concerned Parent says:

Funny… the only people that I’ve heard defend Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy are other pregnant teens or women who had babies in high school. I’m sorry ladies, but this just isn’t the way to do it. It’s not healthy for anyone involved and often takes the biggest toll on the grandparents who often take a huge roll in raising these little bundles.
I’m glad Jamie is keeping her baby, but I really wish she would have stayed abstinent for just a wee bit longer. 16 is just too young to be having sex. This is one of the reasons why.

December 20, 2007 at 4:39 pm
(45) Renee says:

It happens. You can give your children the best guidence in the world and they still won’t take it. What they do with the baby is their buisnees, but I hope she has the guidence enough to know what to do with it.This doesn’t mean I condon teenage pregnancy, it just means that once it is there, it is there. I hope she keeps it.

December 20, 2007 at 5:00 pm
(46) Nancy says:

While a teenage pregnancy is nothing to boast about I give her credit for not having an abortion. The only reason we don’t hear of teenage pregnancies anymore is because of the high abortion rate.

December 20, 2007 at 5:03 pm
(47) TMR says:

What is truly upsetting about this little article is the reactions of people revealed in these many posts. The hatred spewed for a person that you don’t even know is astounding and very sad. It’s this unrelenting anger that will destroy society not a pregnant teenager. This kind of anger can eat you alive.

I know nothing about this girl, Jamie, and while it is never a good thing to see a girl pregnant at 16 the outrage here is way over the top. She may be a rotten mother or she may end up being an OK mom no better or worse then the rest of us. None of you know and neither do I.

Look to your own lives and your own soul to answer the question for yourself. Why am I so angry at this girl I don’t even know?

December 20, 2007 at 5:38 pm
(48) Marsha says:

Apparently she learned nothing. In this day and age with all the methods of birth control available this little girl should not have gotten pregnant unless she wanted to. Maybe that is the reason she’s pregnant, she wanted to have a baby. What I would like to know is, are the police going to arrest him for statutory rape of a minor? If not, why not? They may have had consenual sex, but she is still a minor and he is still considered an adult. I have a family member who went to jail for quite sometime for this very same thing. He was punished for consensual sex but the girl was not. I wondered why not, she was just as guilty as he was. These young girls no exactly what they are doing, so the old story that I’ve heard before of…”oh, she’s just so young, she didn’t know what she was doing, he must have raped here” that doesn’t cut it! Maybe if these guys were prosecuted this wouldn’t happen as much. Then again, even if they knew that they might end up in jail, it probably wouldn’t stop them from having sex with these young girls anyway! Thanks for letting me say my piece.

December 20, 2007 at 5:41 pm
(49) Bobby Shaw says:

In 2005, Genarlow Wilson was tried for the rape of a 17-year-old girl at a hotel-room party. While he was found not guilty of that charge, he was convicted of aggravated child molestation for the act with the 15-year-old — even though he was less than two years older.

The issue drew international attention when a Georgia teen was sentenced to 10 years in prison for having consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 17.

Georgia law, which has since been changed, required a mandatory 10-year sentence on the charge of aggravated child molestation and required Wilson to register as a sex offender when he was released. Under the revised Georgia law, the act now would be a misdemeanor.

Now 21, Wilson was released from prison in October — after serving more than two years — when the state Supreme Court ruled his sentence was “grossly disproportionate to his crime.”

He said statutory rape prosecutions of teens are more common in Southern states and small towns than they are elsewhere in the country or in big cities.

B.J. Bernstein, Wilson’s attorney, argued throughout his case that Wilson was imprisoned for an act that, while perhaps morally questionable, probably is going on among teens everywhere.

Multiple issues here…parents, society with low moral values and children being “adults” much too early.

December 20, 2007 at 5:48 pm
(50) TotalWisdom says:

What a sad state of affairs (literally…) She is responsible & he is responsible for that child (& BTW they’re both idiots). It’s hard to believe these polished up skanks (i.e., the Spears) can be so stupid but I guess that looks never did guarantee intelligence. People have to be made to be responsible or they’ll never learn & whoever doesn’t hold them responsible can be held to blame too (like their trailer trash mom).

December 20, 2007 at 6:35 pm
(51) Ekdog says:

We shouldn’t be angry at this girl for being pregnant. It’s the hypocritical Bible-belt culture (she’s from Louisiana) that needs to be lambasted for promoting abstinence (not gonna happen) and denying young people the information they need about safe sex and birth control. Is it any wonder that our teenage pregnancy rate is so much higher than in progressive countries like Sweden and Denmark?

(52) Welfarecadillac says:

If she were my girlfriend there’s no way I could resist having sex with her. Could you? Be honest. She is such a hottie! The only thing I would have done differently is I’d have used a condom. My God, it must’ve felt good when they “did it”!

(53) Z says:

Its easy to see why today’s kids and teenagers act the way they do. Half of the adults in this world dont know how to deal with children and their problem. What does name calling and lashing out do? Nothing. It doesnt make the problem go away. She has a baby thats on the way. A life that will need caring for regardless. Yea the situation is sad because she’s only 16 and the nitwit thats the father is 19. Yea he should be locked up or had his head examine, because its a scary thought to know that someone that old could think that someone that young was even attractive in the first place. That is disgusting. But as parents and adults you have to learn to think outside yourself. Children and teens make mistakes. Its part of the growing process. Half of you that left messages on here really need to grow up and for the young ones who responded please stay in school. Your education did not show in your comments.

December 20, 2007 at 7:03 pm
(54) Katie says:

I don’t think it’s very fair to call the father the “unlucky” father – let’s not pretend to know how he is feeling about this! It takes two to tango, so he is definitely not the “unlucky” one who got stuck with a pregnant girlfriend – they BOTH made the choice and now they BOTH must live with the consequences.

December 20, 2007 at 7:05 pm
(55) teenage counselor says:

What people need to focus on in today’s society is that our young people are not being taught self-respect, the respect for elders, and the respect for every man, woman, and child. Just take a look at today’s fashions, and listen to the music, hear the language of our teens and stop for a moment. Why are parents tolertating this type of behavior? Self-control and respect, plus the lack of discipline coming from parents, is what is making our teens vulnerable to situations such as the Spears girls. Lack of good role models and we wonder why our teens have nobody to look up to. We encourage our children to grow up too fast, dress and act as adults, etc. No need to look to far to find the reasons why our teens are confused.

People say she’s disgusting for this, but many of us 16-25 year olds are only a thin line away from being in a similar situation ourselves. It can take just one night of depression, broken condoms, drunkenness or sheer stupidity to end up pregnant.

This girl doesn’t deserve to be judged anymore than you would judge the girl across the street for the same behavior. She is pregnant & that is a fact. Bringing a life into the world may be a bad decision, but it is never “disgusting” if you make sure the child is cared for.

What about the fact that she’s a minor and her boyfriend is 18, you ask? Get real. They’re two years apart. Once upon a time, some states were idiot enough to make this statutory rape.

I don’t understand why this little story is getting so much media attention. I’m 16 right now (I’m also a product of a teenage pregnancy [my mother was only one month into SEVENTEEN actually..])and I know a few girls who have had children or have gotten pregnant at an even YOUNGER age. Just because you made a mistake (or maybe didn’t) that does NOT make you a whore/slut/hoe/whatever the hell you guys are calling her. I think people should have more respect for others. I mean, yeah, it’s a really young age to become a parent but we should be ENCOURAGING her to make GOOD/BETTER decisions from now on. NOT bashing her for the ones she’s already made. The fact that she’d Britney Spears’s little sister means NOTHING! Yes, they have fame and attention but that doesn’t take away the fact that they are STILL normal (what the hell IS normal anyway??) people.

All of you have no right to judge her or anyone else. Before you start bashing her try looking at yourSELF and point out all of the mistakes you’ve made in your life.. THEN think about how that girl feels.. to have every little thing she does scrutinized by the country/world.

Sorry for ranting, I just feel very strongly about this. I hope all of you think atleast a LITTLE bit differently now.

GOD WAS TAKEN OUT OF SOCIETY AND WHATEVER FEELS GOOD DO-IT MENTALITY HAS TAKEN OVER. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO THE SAME MAN FOR 25 YEARS. WE HAD 6 CHILDREN OUT OF WEDLOCK. BUT WE GOT MARRIED WHEN OUR YOUNGEST WAS 3 YEARS OLD. MY HUSBAND IS SUCH A SWEETHEART. GOD HAS CHANGED OUR LIVES AND WE’RE SERVING OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. ALSO GOD HAS BLESSED US ABUNDTANTLY ABOVE WHAT WE COULD EVER ASK FOR. SO GIVE GOD A TRY, HE IS ALIVE AND REAL. GOD BLESS

(67) TennMom says:

In an ideal world, teenagers wouldn’t have sex. We don’t live in an ideal world; we live in a real one. That said, I think it is rather presumptuous to assume that Miss Spears and her boyfriend neglected to use birth control. The only form of birth control which is 100% effective is abstinence. Unfortunately, the real world rears its ugly head when it comes to teens and sex. I have an inkling that many parents who are so quick to judge Spear’s parents would be rather shocked at what their own teenagers are doing. And, for the holier-than-thou crowd, I have one question. If God did not want teens to have sex, why on Earth did He create their bodies to mature physiologically long before they are psychologically able to understand the ramifications of sexual relationships?

At least she hasn’t committed murder (abortion) as others did.And the only thing I know is that the Bible says a child is a gift from God, no matter how he/ she came.Plz stop saying names that is not gonna help.People we don’t know our 2moro it’s only GO who knows, now let us pray with our children so that they may not get to this situation.Because sitting down, talking to youngsters, teaching them about sex life is not the solution.The best is 2 pray.

I only read a few comments here.
Anyways, this is mostly in response to ‘P.E.JAY’.
You can’t always blame the parents. Most kids are smart enough to know that safe sex is extremely important.
This girl knows it, she just doesn’t care. She deserves to have this baby, take care of it and live with the consequence of a ruined life because of a few bad mistakes. Just like every other normal teenage mother. Sixteen and pregnant isn’t that bad if you consider the statistics. The only reason this pregnancy matters is because the kid is famous.
But hell. At least she isn’t poor like the majority.
Lucky her.

(75) Shanna says:

“Look to your own lives and your own soul to answer the question for yourself. Why am I so angry at this girl I dont even know?”

I’m not angry at Jamie Lynn Spears. I am, however, certainly not pleased about the message this is sending out to her young, impressionable fans.

When we idolize celebs and put them on these high pedestals (as we do), and these people choose to pursue a celebrity career knowing this, they take on a certain amount of responsibility for the image they portray to the public with their actions – especially when their fan base is young, impressionable children and teens.

Jamie Lynn chooses to be a celebrity living her life in the spotlight; she doesn’t have the leeway to make the mistakes that other teens can make…she has a responsibility to act more maturely and competently. If she wants the perks of having thousands of adoring fans and being a rich & famous star, she has to make sacrifices and live her life accordingly. She has a duty to her fans to give them a good example to live by…since her ‘fans’ are children and teens who will emulate her.

I don’t feel sorry for celebs and their constantly-monitored lives. They know this is the life when they choose these careers; it’s part of the sacrifice to live a rich, charmed, and opulent life. After all, these fans and the overbearing media are what pay their bills and keep them rich and popular…they have to cater to them whether they like it or not.

Jamie Lynn, in acting irresponsible, has let her fans down (and all of the people that helped her rise to her current level of fame). Her only recourse now is to make an example of herself and work hard to send a message out to other young people that premarital sex, if it happens (and it does, let’s not be foolish), needs to go hand-in-hand with responsible contraception. She has a chance to redeem herself by becoming a positive role-model once more by preaching “Don’t let what happened to me happen to you.”

Sexual intercourse IS NOT FOR KIDS, most of whom are NOT emotionally mature enough raise children.
Sometimes when a person plays with fire, they get burned.
Raising a child can be difficult (and usually is)even under the best of circumstances.
May Jamie Lynn grow in wisdom as she matures into womanhood.

Some people seem to be upset at unwed teenage pregnacy, some don’t seem to care at all, some say ” they need our suport”…on and on it goes.

The fact that babies born out of wedlock is the worse scenario there is for a new beginning for that new precious child, has just been trivialized by everyone anymore. We make excuses, we do everything but let it be known that this is NOT accepted behavior by society!! when we begin to make sure that unwed mothers AND fathers know that it isn’t acceptable anymore to have Babies without a commitment, a marriage vow it’s going to keep happening, no matter WHAT you say or do..There was A time when you didn’t dare let this happen, BUT, if it did , you didn’t dare announce it like it was no BIG DEAL!! you put the child up for adoption.. so it could have a MOM and DAD. The mom went on with her life, and having learned a HARD..HARD lesson, she most likely went on to make something of her life afterwards. I know it wasn’t easy for her…or the dad, BUT, the BABY had a much better life…a better chance at growing into a fine human being….

Im more worried about her sister and her children and drugs than I am this girl being stoned and by the way Im a mother of 9 children none of them are saints but I have never condemned my children or anyone else.

Just look back on Britney’s videos and watch what she is selling. Then again Americans are so numbed by bad behaviour and sleazy videos that the teens and twenties don’t have a clue of the consequences. WHY ARE AMERICANS SO CELEBRITY BRAINWASHED??????

(88) Diane says:

I have four kids. I got pregnant at 16, had them all before I was 23, and I’m now 37. My children are virgins, or careful. I keep condoms around the house, although I don’t need them, and I started discussing sex–safe sex and abstaining–when my kids were young. I have a son who is eighteen, his girlfriend is sixteen. They aren’t having sex yet, but they discuss it; she plans to get on the pill in preparation for this. I would hate to see someone prosecute my son because he’s dating a girl in his high school and not one in college.
There is a four-year age “limit” once you reach 15, at least in Nebraska. It keeps kids who turn eighteen from being accused of raping their not-eighteen girl- (or boy-) friends. Rape is not consensual. My children know these details: you can rape someone before intercourse; you cannot give consent if you are inebriated; you are still a child at fourteen. And the all-important “parenting as a teen is HARD.”
I think frank discussions have made a big difference in my kids’ lives. If my mother would have discussed sex with me, just once, maybe I wouldn’t have been a “statistic”. But then I wouldn’t have four great kids. :)

December 21, 2007 at 6:52 pm
(89) Andrea says:

Yes, this case of teen pregnancy IS different than most, because thousands of pre-pubescent girls and teens look up to her. As noted by Shanna, she has a responsibility because of her status. It is because of her, her sister, and the likes of other “role models” like Lindsay Lohan that girls as young as 8 think it’s acceptable to dress promiscuously and, apparently, act promiscuously.

And in response to “Tenn Mom” (did you mean Teen Mom?), God did not create us to mature sexually before we mature intellectually. That phenomenom is purely a societal construct, as we encourage child-like behaviour for much longer than historically, while hastening puberty with the many harmful chemicals in our diet. However, Jamie Lyn is still responsible for her actions, as any human being above the age of five is!

(90) Sandy says:

I can’t say that being pregant at 16 is a good idea. It takes lots of time and energy and love to raise a child, when your young you believe you can do anything (and I understand that, been there myself). I just hope for the baby’s sake that Ms.Spears is ready for this step. And I do believe she and the entire family needs our Prayers. They do have lots of problems, and unfortunately being in the spotlight doesn’t help them, it just makes everything they do that much harder. I wish all the best for the family and hope they can get the help they honestly appear to need. May God Bless them and help them in this time!
Merry Christmas to All!

Abortions are NOT murdering unborn babies, it is the womans choice it is her body, and if you think that abortions are murder, then DON”T GET ONE and be stuck like that IDJIT JL who decided to keep it and have a horrible life and be hated for ever and ruin other peoples life, like whoever said that she was a role model,etc. I think that the Spears family should go into rehab of they are blurting private stuff about themselves that WE REALLY DON’T NEED TO KNOW!!!!!

I have read just about all of these ignorant statements. “Smiley face” Abortions are Murder. Anything that grows is living. If you interfer with the growth process in a fatal way, it is murder. Why do you think that if someone causes the death of a unborn child in the mother, they can be charged with murder? Another thing, it is not the woman’s choice…its also the father’s. We too have the say so in the matter because the child is ours also. Back to the Jamie Lynn situation, she is only a child herself, so raising one will be hard especially considering her family background. The only thing that can come out of this fan wise is for parents to step up and start teaching our kids about life and the responsibility of it. Talk to your kids about sex, drugs, gangs, and alcohol. If we build a proper foundation for them, they would look at these celebrities and merely shake their head and be glad that they are not in that situation. To the rest of the comments, some of you are just disrespectful and rude. This is still a child regardless of her actions and for some of you to call her out her name just makes no sense. You have no room to judge anybody. Sometimes you really shouldnt say what you feel or what you think. Go back to what you was taught as a child, if you cant say nothing good, then don’t say nothing at all.

One more thing please do not abort that sweet, innocent baby. It may be in your stomach, but it is still a real person and it is still alive in your in your stomach.

Y are u concerned neway go watch lifetime”. What a joke! When I look at the whole situation I see two things. One, I want Jamie Lynn off on Nickelodeon. She made a mistake, sure, but that doesn’t mean she should still be in a position to be a role model for young girls. And two, that poor baby! It doesn’t have much of a chance. A young mom with no experience, obvisously unconcerned grandmother, a crazy aunt, and a father who will probably have very little to do with it. Plus, a life in the spotlight. Money doesn’t buy everything, and in the Spears’ family’s case… it does NOT by intelligence.

They have been able to live in playland because of their talents. Grew up gaining talent, but not much common sense or any values. Their values: make dough, have a good time, screw around, and say screw the values of the society. I’m free, free at last. Don’t think that was MLK preached. They probably have never heard the good words of living a valued life.

Oh and how do u people know this baby is going to be brought up in a bad way who r we to judge people i bet every person that placed a comment up here or any other sit or even said anything about her has made or will make a big mistake like this maybe not the same one but one just as big or bigger.

EVERYBODY READ THIS!!!!!!!!
Think about what u r about to put on this sit is it right to put bad things about people where everybody can c to think them is one thing but to put it where the public and c.
Thats what this worlds come 2 people talking about one another and wasting there time on sit like this ( i know i am 2) but if u were out helping someone in need or cleaning the neighborhood the world wouldn’t be like it is to day u may think something like that is useless but it’s not every little bit helps to make this world a better place.

And Jamie sorry about useing your sit for preaching but i think some of these people needed to read this.

Many are stating that it’s the parent’s fault. No it isn’t. It’s society in general.

For some bizarre reason, it’s actually seen acceptable to wear mini skirts right up to your hips! For some weird reason it’s not education that counts, but the amount of time you’ve spent on TV! What ever happened to being a successful doctor. You don’t have to be on TV to be successful. Jamie Lynn Spears is just a victim of that and she or her family will never learn that lesson: they are trapped in a rat race.

I thought it would be a good idea to post my comment that came directly from my post on my site, All Things Scorpia.com

Jamie Lynn Spears is a topic I’ve steered away from. Usually on All Things Scorpia, I’m very opinionated and sarcastic, but to me this is a bigger and broader issue than most think. You know the notion that 16 yr old girls don’t get pregnant is a sad assumption, in fact 41.9 births per 1,000 in 2006 were charted in the United States. Why do people think that celebrity puts you in a new category other than a higher tax bracket. Jamie plays a character on a television show, yes I know it’s Nickelodeon, but when did we become so clueless? We know damn well there’s no such thing as a perfect teen. The real question needs to be, what responsibility will Nickelodeon burden? Will they make a teen pregnancy campaign featuring their beloved Zoey, I mean Spears? Please keep in mind that Zoey is not Spears and vice versa. The new season has wrapped and will premier in February on the network. So a tough decision lies ahead for the channel.

It’s crazy to me how we criticize people, but won’t get our own households in order! I admire the fact that Jamie is willing to go through the most difficult process in life. I’m a mother and it’s one of the most hardest, rewarding life-style changes you could ever imagine. She could have hid it from everyone and had an abortion or disappear and come back with twins! I’m not saying that her speaking out on her private life doesn’t have anything to do with her sister getting all the shine. I mean seriously, being 16 and spoiled has never been better. I definitely think that our childhood has a lot to do with the person we are in present day. I’m sure everyone knows that the father is an alcoholic and the mother is an on-hold author on parenting, but the trailer park family from Louisiana has many other family secrets that I’m sure will rear its ugly head! I don’t think that anyone would’ve prevented this. If young people want to have unprotected sex then that’s just what they’ll do, we can’t stop them! The only powers parents have is the back-hand and communication skills. We can talk to them and tell them the consequences of their actions. We can use the back-hand when they talk back and be disrespectful, but locking them up in a room so they won’t open their legs is not a solution. Parents these days want to text hello to their children or sit-down and talk when they have dinner at The Ivy. Who’s to blame in the situation? In my honest opinion, magazine covers, videos, the idea that love is sex…. in other words the world we live in is full of holes and we can’t fill them until the need for change is universal!

You Americans are SCARY! All this name calling ‘whore, slut’ and calling it statutory rape. weird! She has a long term boyfriend, and made a mistake. Yes, she should have used birth control, or ‘better’ birth control. It doesn’t make her bad – its by no means ideal, but give them BOTH a chance.

By just reading this blog its increasingly easy to see why our kids and teenagers are the way they are. Mickey, Im not sure if you’re actually twelve or not, but if you are…stay in school. Take a computer class. And your parents should monitor your computer use. It was almost midnite when you posted your comment. Why werent you in bed? Perfect example of how slack we have become in monitoring our kids. To everyone else who would rather blame society for Jamie’s mistake…STOP. We cant blame society for everything. It does start at home. It always has and it always will. No matter where you come from, you DO NOT have to become an product of your environment. Jamie’s situation is one of an average teen who thought she was grown. We know different. I do not congratulate her on “coming forward” about her situation. The reason why this has struck alot of parents is because it did in some aspect have an positive effect on young teenage girls. Some did look up to her. Whenever you become a celebrity, you have already made the choice to be in the spotlight. You have thrust yourself into the world for all to see. You now have a greater responsibility, whether you want it or not. And as far as her “so called” boyfriend, yes he should be charged with statutory rape. He’s 19. She’s only 16. There’s a 3 yr gap there. Meaning he’s been with her since before the age of consent. Ask yourself this…as a parent would you allow your 14 yr old daughter to date an 17 yr old guy? Heck no…you wouldnt. What would a 17 yr old want with a 14 yr old child? That’s nasty. And in my opinion, if he likes them young now…he always will. Picture him at 25 trying to date a 15 yr old girl. Draw the line somewhere. I wish her no ill will. I do hope that the baby is healthy as well as her. Regardless of the situation, the baby is innocent. Jamie is too in a sense, that she was young and vunerable. Who knows maybe she’ll be the way who breaks her family crazy misguided mold. She has the power to make something good out of this. She could speak to other young girls and let them know that sex at an early age is not a good thing and that it does have complications. She could stress how important it is to stay in school and get an education. She could stress how important SAFE SEX is and how hard it is to raise a child as a teenager. That’s about all that can be done. Calling her names and all of that is childish and immature.

Some People say that “Oh i Love Jamie, and it’s not a big deal”!.
Well if your one of those people who actually think that then Shut up!
Raising a baby is HUGE deal.
I do feel bad for Jamie but she knew what was going to happen b4 she had sex.
And I also do think that she should get fired.
Because she doesn’t need any money, All she needs to do is stay home and be a full time mom.
It hurts to say, but if Jamie ends up like her sister..
that poor child is never going to get the love, and care that baby needs. I hope she won’t tho.

(143) January says:

Some of these comments are very ridiculous! Your role models should be someone like your parents or grandparents not a superstar.Jamie is no different from the rest of the teenagers who experiment. Sure she shouldn’t be having sex but, the reality is IT IS HAPPENING!!!!!! What she needs is positive people around her everyone makes mistakes and God forgives. Who are you to judge her character. I am sure there are plenty of you leaving these comments that were having sex at 16 or younger you just didn’t get caught up with it. Leave that child alone before you make her lose the most precious thing that God can give, her baby and her life!!!!! Some of you can be so stupid and judgemental. Raising a child is very hard, but if she has support and a strong spiritual background God will provide abundantly for her baby and her. Jamie, sweetie keep your head up, find out the sex of your baby, name it, thank God that he/she is healthy and love it forever.!!!!!

i think that she has just made a mistake…. but also she is supposed to be a rolemodel for children. so maybe this experience will be an eye-opener and i do not think the father should be charged jamie lyn is also at fault here and im sure both of them will have to pay.

i think that jamie made a very wrong decision but are you telling me u parents didnt make mistakes like this when you were a kid just like us kids! we arent looking for what is going to be what comes out of the bad choices we make and how our lives will be punished and i think that jamie was doing what all kids are doing living life! it isnt like it was when most people were kids its a new century and people make mistakes so unless you are perfect quit judging her life!!! and do us all a favor and fix yours before you try to fix others!!!

(155) S says:

Why is every one getting so hyped up about this, she is a young girl yes but many people make mistakes, it would be a completly different story if yours sister got pregnant at 16,

and FYI reports claim the dad was 18 when the baby was concieved but no-one knows the actual truth

i understand many parents are upset that a role model ended up pregnant but this girl is her own person and she didnt choose to be a role model,

She wasnt the first teenager to get pregnant and she surely wont be the last.

(159) Jane says:

I don’t see why people are always blaming the parents. It’s not like her mother forced her to have unprotected sex at only 16 years old. Teenagers aren’t stupid. They know right from wrong. SHE chose for herself to have sex at such a young age, not her mother. When I was her age my mother told me it was okay to have sex, do drugs, and drink, but guess what… I didn’t. That’s because I have control over my own actions and where I go in life. You say you hope she doesn’t end up like her big sister. She is pregnant at 16, so that right there is enough to say that she already IS like her sister. Hopefully she’ll snap out of it soon and learn from her mistakes. Girls like her should not be role models for little girls and other teens.
