Oh, Jamie Lynn Spears. You’re so FUNNY.
I love how much she wants to make it on her own, but she’ll never really be out of her sister Britney Spears‘ shadow. Can’t fault her for trying, though. Girl’s got a new TLC In TLC’s Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out, which aired on Sunday. Now that little Jamie Lynn is 25, she’s able to reflect back on her life…and her pregnancy. And yes, the most notable part is her pregnancy, because she found out she was preggers in a gas station bathroom. Ah, can’t take the country out the girl, ya HEAR?
Reflecting on her relationship with Casey Aldridge, Jamie Lynn said it started out “very innocent, like every first love does.” They met at church when he was 16 and she was 14 and enjoyed going to the movies and riding four-wheelers. “I just knew it was going to be forever, until it wasn’t forever,” she explained.
After she’d returned from a stint in Los Angeles, a friend noticed Jamie Lynn had been sick. “I don’t know how you can say this without feeling a little tacky,” she began. “I kept actually throwing up.” Her friend asked if she could be pregnant and Jamie said there was no way — but with some urging, Jamie Lynn agreed to take a test. “We didn’t want to do it at home, so I went in the BP and I took a pregnancy test,” she recounted. Jamie Lynn’s friend did the honors of looking at the results and when she did, she began freaking out. “I was like, ‘What? What? What?'” Jamie Lynn recalled. It goes without saying, the test was positive.
Unable to tell her parents face-to-face, Jamie Lynn wrote a note and put it in her mother’s room. At first, her mom, Lynne, thought (or hoped) Jamie Lynn was joking, but she soon found out this was far from a joke. Her father didn’t take it well. “For me, the world stopped a couple seconds,” he said. “It was a total shock.”

Geez, the note part is also sad. It goes to show that riding four wheelers and going to church can AND DOES lead to pregnancy. Let’s cut out that abstinence-only education, yo.
