Jamie Lynn's pregnancy: Details emerge




Let’s just delve right into it, shall we? Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant. That much, you know. Now some of the blanks are beginning to be filled in. “It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” the 16-year-old Nickelodeon star told OK! magazine, according to the Associated Press. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.” Spears is 12 weeks along in the pregnancy, and initially kept the news from her family when she found out via an at-home test and subsequent doctor visit. “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,” she said, noting that she broke the news to her mom just before Thanksgiving. “I didn’t believe it because Jamie Lynn’s always been so conscientious,” Lynne Spears said. “She’s never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby.” (By the way — Mama Spears’ upcoming book on parenting? Delayed by the publishers, obvs.) But what about Britney? Well, if People, TMZ and other outlets are to be believed, Jamie Lynn’s older sister didn’t even know about the pregnancy when news of it broke. Jamie Lynn said she wants to raise the baby in her home state of Louisiana, “so it can have a normal family life.” Ah, the naivete of youth!
