Jamie Lynn Spears, 21, and her daughter Maddie Briann, nearly 4, stepped out with grandma Lynne in West Hollywood, Calif. on Sunday (May 6). The three generations of Spears girls were joined by an unidentified baby as they shopped and stopped for ice cream.
The single mom – who just launched her country music career – recently opened up about being pregnant at 16, saying she never wanted to “glamorize teen pregnancy.”
It was 2007,” Jamie Lynn wrote. “I had been on a Nickelodeon show, Zoey 101, and after we wrapped shooting, I just wanted to go home to Louisiana and finish high school, be a cheerleader, all that. Then I found out I was pregnant [by then- boyfriend Casey Aldridge]. I was 16. I’d had one boyfriend. It doesn’t make it perfect or all right. But I was judged for something that probably most everyone does. I was young. I was in love. I was like every other teenager, except I had this last name. And I made a decision that is forever my decision.”
Jamie Lynn talks about being embarrassed at the time to reach out for birth control.
“Casey was my first love,” she says. “Since the day I saw him, I just wanted to marry him and be with him forever and ever. I believe in safety and birth control as prevention. But like many young girls…I was really scared to go to the doctor. And I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it [felt] especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control. I didn’t want to ask my doctor, because she had a little girl.”
Jamie Lynn’s older sister is popstar, Britney Spears.
