She finally speaks out
My kids used to watch Zoey 101 on the Nickelodeon religiously, so I was as shocked as anyone when I learned the star of the show and Britney Spears' younger sister Jamie Lynn was pregnant at just 16.
It's not that teenagers don't get pregnant every day in the United States, but we rarely hear of teenagers from a famous family with a promising television career getting pregnant at 16. But as popular as she was, she seemed to fade from the limelight to embrace motherhood, and has stayed away, until recently.
Now, nine years later, the aspiring country singer is opening up in a new special about what it was like to be a television star, younger sister of one of the biggest pop stars in history and a pregnant teenager.
