Remember [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm]’ little sister [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jamie Lynn[/lastfm]? She had her own Nickelodeon tv show and was on the cover of every teen magazine. Then… she got pregnant. She disappeared for a minute, but now she’s back! She sat down with Glamour to talk about teen pregancy, what she’s been up to and to gush about her daughter Maddie who loves dancing to Aunt Britney’s songs!
In 2007, Jamie was 16 years old and pregnant. Now she’s 20 years old and is talking about it all. Jamie said, “I was a kid who did a kid show. Then I went away to raise my child, and the world has never met me as an adult. Do people have an idea of they think I am? Yes, and that’s fine with me.” Sounds pretty grown up to me!
When she was asked why she went to OK! Magazine and gave them her story of being pregnant, she didn’t shy away. Jamie added, “I knew I had to give an explanation to my fans, and I wanted it to be in my words first…I did feel responsible for the young girls and the mother who I probably confused and let down. I apologize for that. But, I wasn’t trying to glamorize teen pregnancy. I hated when [tabloids] said that.” That issue of the magazine is still listed as one of their top selling EVER! So what else does she have to say… click NEXT!
Jamie doesn’t make excuses though, she also said, “I had one boyfriend. It doesn’t make it perfect or all right, I was judged for something that probably most everyone does. I was young. I was in love. I was like every other teenager, I just had this last name.” She did mention that when she heard about the MTV show, Teen Moms, she was excited to see what it was going to be about and was glad that it shows how hard motherhood is. She felt a kinship with the girls featured because she says she feels for them and knows how hard things can get.
The pride and joy in Jamie’s life is her daughter Maddie. Jamie says, “Maddie loves her Aunt Britney’s songs. She loves singing and dancing and all of that. I defintely think music is in her genes.” How cute is that!! Auntie Britney— awww…. You can feel the love for her daughter that she has. She says, “The only thing I’m affraid of is not being a good mom. As long as Maddie is healthy, and loves me, the rest doesn’t matter.”
As a mom myself, I know how hard it is to juggle work and a baby. I have 2 kids. I hope Jamie finds the right balance to bring happiness for herself and her daughter! I wish her all the best, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for her. Jamie is trying to get back in the spotlight again. She has moved to Nashville and is working on a country album that will be out later this year! Do you think it’s going to be hard for her to get back in the public eye and have people take her seriously?
