Jamie Lynn Spears to Teen Mom Stars: I Feel Ya!

by at . Comments

In a new interview, Jamie Lynn Spears defends, offers praise for, and stands in solidarity with the stars of MTV's Teen Mom. She can definitely relate.

Britney Spears' younger sister, who was 16 and pregnant herself at one point, opens up about motherhood and the show in the new issue of Glamour.

"When I saw MTV's Teen Mom was coming out, I remember thinking, Oh my God, I cannot wait to see this, there's someone else out there," she says.

"I mean, I feel for those girls. I've been that girl. Motherhood is hard. It takes bravery to be a young mom, and takes bravery to let the world watch."

She's such a fan, in fact, Spears even recently reached out to one of the stars of Teen Mom 2, Chelsea Houska, over Twitter to set up a play date.

Maybe they'll meet in the middle between Mississippi and South Dakota?

Spears also talked about Casey Aldridge, her ex-fiance and the father of Maddie Briann, and how they tried to make it work, only to fall short.

"We tried. We really wanted to do it right and we tried. We loved each other," she says. "I will love Casey as Maddie's father until the day I die."

She says she feels terrible about letting people down: “I feel responsible for the young girls and the mothers who I probably confused and let down."

"I apologize for that. But I wasn’t trying to glamorize teen pregnancy. I hated when [the tabloids] said that. Everybody is dealt a hand of cards."

"It was my choice to play them the way I did. But the comments hurt.”

The 20-year-old says Maddie sees her father one weekend a month and adds that down the road, they will warn her about having sex too young.

"Both her daddy and me will caution her [about having sex]," she says. "I would hope that she would not want to do that at all, but I'm realistic too."

In the end, she says she'll stress balance: "I've got to figure out a way to communicate to her to make smart choices and the best decisions she can."

Listen, when I found out Jamie was pregnant, I was let down because she was my role model. I missed seeing her on Zoey 101. But I still love her. She wasn't trying to let anyone down. It just happened that way. It was a mistake (Not saying that Maddie is a mistake), and it happens. So what if Casey and Jamie broke up? That doesn't mean he's not going to ignore his child like most fathers do! It doesn't mean Casey and Jamie are going to be in a war all the time like Maci and Ryan from Teen Mom or Chelsea and Adam from Teen Mom 2!! They both make really good parents. I love you, Jamie. And FYI, everyone, her name is JAMIE. NOT ZOEY!!!!! Thank you.

I completly agree Kelly!!! I was 16 when I was pregnant just because you get pregnant doesn't mean you are a slut, it just meant that you've just become one of the statistics that had gotten pregnant. Zoe answer this how in the hell are we sluts when you KNOW your a$$ was out there having sex at that age as well the ONLY difference is that you didn't happen to get pregnant??? So you know good and damn well you have know room to talk!! However, if your closed minded lack of commen sense a$$ still THINKS we are sluts so be it....I just feel sorry for your daughter, or granddaughter if this shall happen to them!! OOO and BTW NONE of is OBVIOUSLY would change out kids for the world!!

I was a teen mom and was not a slut and 13 years later with the same man and another child. People should shut their mouths when they don't know the situation. So what if she wants to be back in the spotlight, people shouldn't be such haters. Grow the F up because I guarantee those who posted the rude comments aren't much if any older than Jamie Lynn is. Mature adults appreciate life struggles and don't judge others.
