Mike Huckabee Speaks on Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

by at . Comments

Everyone has an opinion on this week's huge celebrity news: the Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant story. It's even spilled over into the presidential campaign.

Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, a former Baptist minister and the former governor of Arkansas, recently picked up the endorsement of Chuck Norris. Now he's entered the fray on the Jamie Lynn Spears situation.

And while the candidate has been notably caught off-guard by breaking news in recent weeks, he passed this test of pop culture with flying colors.

News of Britney Spears' younger sister's pregnancy broke early this week and is in all the tabloids, including OK! Magazine. On the campaign trail in Iowa, Mike Huckabee was asked how he felt about - what else - pregnant Jamie Lynn.

Even White House hopeful Mike Huckabee is weighing in on Jamie Lynn.

While Huckabee's answer may have fit any out-of-wedlock teenager in the same situation as the younger Spears, the candidate commented with confidence:

"In my mind it's a tragedy when a 16-year-old who is not really prepared for all the responsibilities of adult life is going to be now faced with all of the many responsibilities of honest-to-goodness adult life," he told CBS News.

"Apparently, she's going to have the child and I think that is the right decision, a good decision, and I respect that and appreciate it," Mike Huckabee continued. "I hope it is not an encouragement to other 16-year-olds who think that is the best course of action. But at the same time I'm not going to condemn her."

"There'll be plenty of people in line to do that and I always look for the shortest lines. I just hope that she will make another right decision and that's to give that child all the love and kindness and care that she can."
