Britneys 16-year old sister is pregnantDecember 19th, 2007 - 2:12 pm ICT by admin
London , Dec 19 (ANI): Pop star Britney Spears teenage sister Jamie-Lynn has admitted that she is pregnant, but the one family member who didnt know this was Britney herself.
16-year-old Jamie-Lynn, who stars in Nickelodeons TV show Zoey 101 has confirmed the news in a magazine interview with her mom Lynne.
Meanwhile Britney is said to be furious with the news.
Jamie-Lynn also said that the father of the baby is long time partner Casey Aldridge.
After the initial shock of the pregnancy wore off, Jamie disclosed the secret to a close friend. Two weeks later on Thanksgiving, she broke the news to her parents and other friends.
“As soon as I found out for sure from the doctor, I took two weeks to myself where I didn’t tell anybody, The Sun quoted Jamie, as saying.
She added: “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.”
As for her parents reaction, mum Lynne admits she was in shock.
“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, said Lynne.
She added: “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.”
Meanwhile, Jamie Lynn plans to raise he baby in Louisiana “so it can have a normal family life.”
Jamies beau, Casey Aldridge’s mother, Joyce, has also confirmed the news.
“We are aware of the recent interview regarding her and being pregnant, and we are in agreement with everything that was said by Jamie Lynn about the situation … everything is fine, she said.
While when she was asked if her son Casey wanted to speak anything about her girlfriend being pregnant, she said that he “do that at the right time”.
“At this point, Casey doesn’t wish to speak out, but it would be wonderful when the time comes, said Joyce Aldridge.
Nickelodeon, who screen Zoey 101, have issued a statement saying that it was Jamies personal matter and they respect it.
“We respect Jamie Lynn’s decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn’s well being, said the statement.
Jamie, a high school junior and 10 years younger than Britney, had until now escaped much of the attention about her personal life that has surrounded her sister.
Jamie Lynn plays a schoolgirl at the fictitious Pacific Coast Academy in Zoey 101, which will be finishing its third season next month as one of Nickelodeon’s highest-rated shows.
However, Jamies representative was not immediately available for comment. (ANI)
