Britney Spears's little sister is PREGNANT?!?


Get this…she met the baby’s father in church. He’s 19 and she is 16, isnt that like stattitory (sorry spelling) rape? Cant he go to jail?

Once again, wow.

I find it disgusting and yes technically it is statutory rape and he can go to jail.

I find it repulsive kids can’t seem to keep their pants on until they marry, but geez if they have to there is birth control for heaven’s sake.

In the state of Florida, he could be arrested and tagged as a sex offender. When I worked at our local law enforcement agency, one of my co-workers was responsible for registering sex offenders, and she sent the officers out if she lost contact with them.

I remember several cases where the sex was consensual. However, the guy was the “adult” capable of making that decision.

I find it sad for the family…overall. As the mom of a teenage girl, it frightens me. Dd does not understand why I won’t let her go to her guy “friend’s” house. Ummm…perhaps the possibility of no supervision? Hello??

But, you can’t blame the parents…solely.

So sad. At least she’s not going to abort the baby. Give the girl points for that.

eh… not surprised.

She’s got to do a better job than her sister. I don’t think that she can do much worse. I mean, if she doesn’t shave her head and she keeps her underwear on… It MIGHT turn out ok…

I’m in the ‘not surprised’ camp.

however, I must say, birth control dosen’t always work. We don’t know the specifics. Both of them could have been using protection for all we know. Shit happens and birth control fails. Hell, 2 of my 3 kids were concieved while I was on the pill and dh was wearing a condom.

and for the age thing, I don’t think it should be criminal anywhere for a 19 yr old boy and a 16 year old girl to have consensual sex. Maybe I’m biased because that’s the same age difference between DH and I, but guys do not mature as quickly as girls do so IMHO a 19 yr old boy and a 16 yr old girl are at the same maturity level. I DO, however, have HUGE issues with the fact that jamie lynn spears and her boyfriend have been LIVING together for a year. That’s just wrong, and because of that, her parents ARE solely responsible for this teenage pregnancy. They let her move in with this guy when she was 15!

It’s pretty sad that this family has had so many issues. I’m pretty sure everyone was expecting Jamie Lynn to follow in Britney’s footsteps and now she is. It must be hard to have a sister who is such a public spectacle. I agree that it’s a little strange that they were living together, but there are many circumstances that can explain this. When I was 16 my parents moved provinces and it was my last year of high school so I lived with my boyfriend and his parents. We were barely allowed in the same room, and never in each other’s bedrooms.
I feel bad for Jamie Lynn. She needs to get out of the spotlight, get an education, raise her child and try to have a “normal” life. Stardom has been bad for this family.

Obviously, it’s disturbing that a 16 year old is going to have a baby. But she is at least handling it maturely, unlike the way her big sis is handling everything.

[COLOR=blue]“I definitely don’t think it’s something you should do; it’s better to wait,” she says. “But I can’t be judgmental because it’s a position I put myself in.”[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]She is taking responsibility for her actions (one of her sister’s biggest problems), and she KNOWS WHO THE FATHER IS. She’s already way ahead of many other young women who end up in the same situation. Good for her. It’s not the best situation, but it could be so, so much worse.[/COLOR]

In most states, her 19 year old boyfriend will only be charged with statutory rape IF her parents file charges. I doubt that will be happening.

The news here played it big on the fact that the father was “her long time boyfriend.” So! She’s still only 16. Although I guess I have no room to talk… I was married when I was 16. (Ten days before my 17th and no I didn’t “have” to.) It’s one of those stories that if you have a teen-age daughter, you want to watch them more closely. DD thinks I’m weird because I keep a calandar with dates of her and her sisters cycles… I call myself concerned not weird. How do I know what they’re doing when they’re not home.

What’s even scarier is that Lynn Spears (aka their Mom) is writing a PARENTING BOOK being published by a Christian book company. :noway:

I personally don’t think she is one to be giving PARENTING advice. :shrug:


I feel bad for her. I think she is just growing up too fast because of the industry she is in. It requires a ridiculous amount of maturity for someone her age.

I think she and the baby will be just fine though. She isn’t an alcoholic and doesn’t do drgs and isn’t going out partying every night, she just made a mistake with her boyfriend.

And, financially, if anyone has the means to provide for a child, it’s her.

I find her maturity and responsibility actually quite impressive. She is handling it with much more dignity than i could have at that age. She is a strong girl.

Cross another tween idol OFF the “approved” list for my 12 year old.

I dont care if she is being responsible by having and raising the baby. I’m genuinely concerned about the whole AGE aspect. LIVING with a guy since before she was even legally able to DRIVE? WTH?

Someone once told me…“You have to be a certain age to drive, vote, buy tobacco, or drink, BUT ANY IDIOT CAN HAVE A BABY.”

This is one of those situations.

my fingers are crossed for Miley Cyrus and Hilary Duff. Out of pretty much ALL the tween/young Hollywood starlets…those 2 are the only ones left that I actually have any kind of respect for

Uhhh, yup, it appears that others agree, you can read about it here

Actually, that book has since been “Delayed, indefinitely” according to the publishers of the book. lol.

–Letah you beat me to it. lol.

However, I wouldn’t totally right her off… (Ok letting them live together was quite possibly the most irrisponsible thing she could do… but I’ll continue.)

I personally would love to see her write a book about Parenting Advice for mistakes. So many mothers have to find out their babies are having babies, and wonder where they went wrong, or what now. It would be nice if she could change her book a bit to address those topics…

Given everything that is going on in her family, I can imagine a great number of people consider her a failure as a parent, and in that number somewhere are some parents who also feel like failures, and may want to know how she handled it, and her thoughts on things are…

There are plenty of people who don’t have stardom as an excuse for poor decisions. I come from a family of women who married as teens because they “had to” who didn’t have the education they needed, and have what most people would call a “normal life.” As Forrest Gump’s Mama said, “Stupid is as stupid does.” Doesn’t take fame to make someone make poor decisions. That family is about as messed up as mine (except mine doesn’t have the papparazzi following them). I shocked everyone by actually graduating from high school, going to college, and being married more than 4 years before having a baby. I’m now viewed as “snobby and too good” for the rest of the family. :woot:

I personally LOVE Amanda Bynes.

I’m glad the book is on ‘hold’ but it’s not canceled. Now if she does change it to a ‘what not to do’ book, then I’d feel a tad bit better. Still wouldn’t read it.


[FONT=“Comic Sans MS”]I can’t see Nickelodeon keeping her on… I hope she’s saved some money to continue taking care of herself and her little one.[/FONT]

I think that we could all write books on “what not to do” in parenting. I’ve certainly made mistakes, and I’m pretty certain that I’ll make a few more (maybe one or two) before my children leave home in a few short years.

It is reported that Jamie Lynn will recieve 1million dollars from OK! Magazine to do an exclusive photoshoot when the baby is born.

I think she will be ok. Sure it’s less than ideal, but at least she has the monitary support to go with her parental support in this situation. So many girls don’t have either.

I can’t say that I am even remotely surprised. She hasn’t exactly had the most appropriate role models in her life.

As for having a list of “approved” celebrities, well, if a celebrity is capable of winning the attention of young kids, it’s pretty safe to say that there is more going on than you would want kids exposed to. You would be surprised to hear how many Nick stars are supposedly on drugs and some of them even confirm it themselves
