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."

Doesn't matter how much money you have being a teen mom is hard and I dont think that she said this to get back into the media. If you think about it all the girls on the show have someone helping them none of them are totally financially on their own either!

I love how all these teens have all this self pity. Yes it is hard and it's going to drastically change your life. You chose this so quit crying about it. There were other options...adoption, abortion (which I don't support if it is being used as BC, but it's still an option), yet you chose to be a teen mom. I do admit I watch Teen Mom but I don't at all feel bad for them.

She didn't say she could relate to the money troubles... she said she could relate to being a teen mom in the public eye... Geez.

Yeah, because being the sister of a huge popstar is completely relatable to these girls who get themselves pregnant and don't have the luxury of having millions of dollars to help support them. Stop trying to get back in the media, you chose this life yet you've got a thousand times more means to take care of your child that these girls don't. You only share the fact that you got pregnant clearly before you were ready for it.
