Jamie Lynn Spears Apologizes For Teen Pregnancy

Jamie Lynn Spears Apologizes For Teen PregnancyJamie Lynn Spears says she is embarrassed by her own teen pregnancy and wasn’t trying to “glamorize teen pregnancy” at when she got pregnant at age 16.

Now 20-years-old Britney Spears‘ little sister has hit out at her critics four years after having her daughter, Maddie, with then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge. At the same time she also apologized for “letting down” young girls who looked up to her at the time.

Jamie Lynn told Glamour magazine: “I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it felt especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control.  “I did feel responsible for the young girls and the mothers who I probably confused and let down. I apologize for that. But I wasn’t trying to glamorize teen pregnancy.”

Jamie Lynn has found it useful to lean on 30-year-old Britney, who has sons Sean Preston, six, and five-year-old Jayden James from her marriage to second husband Kevin Federline, for support while bringing up Maddie.

She added: “[Our bond as mothers], it’s such a big thing, you know? Especially ’cause there’s an age gap there – she’s 10 years older. I think if I were just a normal 20-year-old, I wouldn’t be able to relate as much to her.”

Too soon old, too late smart.
