Jamie Lynn Spears' baby pics all over new OK!
In case you were wondering just how long it was going to take Jamie Lynn Spears to sell out and exploit her illegitimate child on the cover of some glossy rag, wait no longer! The teen mum is on the cover of the latest issue of OK!, spouting off to everyone that hey, it's fine to get knocked up at 16, as long as you can make money off it.
The EXCLUSIVE! photo shoot shows Jamie Lynn (now 17, for those keeping score) and Maddie Briann Aldridge, who was born on June 19, swaddled together looking ever-so-much like the poster children for teen pregnancy. Spears relates every excruciating detail to readers:
"They'd told me it would be an eight- to 12-hour labor, and I was ready to have the baby in three to four hours," she says. "I had a perfect pregnancy and a perfect delivery. I was very blessed."
She also was blessed by the presence of the whole Spears clan, including big sis Britney, who came to the hospital for the event. But it was 19-year-old fiance Casey Aldridge who got to be in the delivery room with her.
"Once I got in there, my doctor was just so calm and so good it was not bad at all," she says. "I was just talking to Casey. And you know what's so weird? I was asking him if he was okay. He was like, 'Yeah.' We were both so excited."
"Yeah" sure sounds excited, doesn't it? The mag says Spears' labor was induced, but she gave birth naturally, with no complications, which even The Juice* admits is good news. We're split, however, on whether mom Lynne Spears' hands-on attitude is a good thing, since she raised Brit and Jamie Lynn.
"Mama has been here a bunch," Jamie Lynn said. "She wants to see the baby all the time. She told me the doctors are always going to be real strict and tell you, `Don't do this and don't do that.' Just follow your instincts. You're the mother and you know what your baby needs. That's what I've done and it seems to have worked."
And while our jaded hearts could make another snide comment about what Lynne's done, we've got to admit, the little bugger is kinda cute. And maybe the new mother will live a happy life of a soccer mom.
"I would love being the soccer mom," she said. "They don't have soccer down here, but I would love being the softball mom driving the kids around."
No soccer in Mississippi? That's the biggest crime of all!
