Lynne Spears thought Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy was a joke

Jamie Lynn & Lynne Spears

Britney Spears’ mom started to chuckle when she first learned her 16-year-old daughter Jamie Lynn was pregnant – because she thought it was a joke.

Lynne Spears has revealed the teenage actress handed her a note and told her to read it alone in the bathroom of the family’s home. It was the first time Spears realised her little girl was having a baby with her boyfriend Casey Aldridge – but she initially refused to believe what she read.

In an interview on Today show on Wednesday, Spears said, “I thought it was a joke… I kept waiting for the punchline.”

But the matriarch quickly realized it was no laughing matter when Aldridge refused to look at her as she came out of the bathroom.

She added, “I was just truly in shock and then I started to cry. And then she (Jamie Lynn) started consoling me at that point.”
The youngest Spears revealed she was pregnant in an interview in December. Lynne Spears details the day she learned all about the pregnancy, as well as other family highs and lows, in her new book Through The Storm.

Lynne Spears: Britney’s ‘breakdown was triggered by depression’

Lynne Spears

Britney Spears’ mother Lynne has attributed her daughter’s recent break-down to post-natal depression.

The pop star was hospitalized at the beginning of the year under a mental health order following months of bizarre behavior. And Lynne Spears insists that the singer’s problems began after she gave birth to her two children, Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two.

But the star’s mental health deteriorated further when she split from her husband Kevin Federline in November 2007, leading to a downward spiral in her personal and professional life.

Lynn writes in her forthcoming book Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, “Having two children within a year of each other would be overwhelming for any woman. She had post-natal depression.

“Added to her broken-hearted spirit over the end of her marriage to Kevin and the enormous pressures of her career, it brought her to breaking point. It was hard for me to believe this much-loved daughter was enduring such pain and I couldn’t be there to help her heal. I felt hopeless.”

Lynne Spears: ‘I’m not a pushy mother’

Lynne Spears

Britney Spears’ mother Lynne has blasted her image as a “pushy stage mother” and insisted she never wanted her daughter to be a superstar.

Spears senior has been accused of driving Britney’s career – starting with her big break on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. But Lynne insists the 26-year-old pushed herself from a young age.

She writes in her forthcoming book Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, “Britney was always highly motivated to excel. I’m always startled when I hear folks think I’m a pushy stage mother. I simply did not have the huge ambitions for her that I have been accused of having.”

Jamie Lynn Spears brought her mother Lynne to tears after reading her new book Through The Storm – because she loved it.

The Spears family matriarch admits her eldest kids Britney and Bryan have yet to read her memoirs, but she’s thrilled her youngest daughter likes what she has read.

She says, “Jamie Lynn loved the book. I started to cry because I told her, ‘I wanted so much for you to like it.’ And she got up and kissed me on the cheek and said, ‘Mama, thank you so much.’”

And Spears admits that writing the book has also helped her mend her relationship with pop superstar Britney: “We are back to four or five phone calls a day.”
