Britney Spears' little sister Jamie Lynn has opened up about getting pregnant at 16.
She reveals she feared speaking to her doctor about birth control yet was shocked when she became pregnant at such a young age.
JL told Glamour that "I had been on a Nickelodeon show, Zoey 101, and after we wrapped shooting, I just wanted to go home to Louisiana and finish high school, be a cheerleader, all that. Then I found out I was pregnant. I was 16. I'd had one boyfriend. It doesn't make it perfect or all right. But I was judged for something that probably most everyone does… I was like every other teenager, except I had this last name…"
She continued, "I believe in safety and birth control as prevention. But like many young girls… I was really scared to go to the doctor. And I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it (felt) especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control. I didn't want to ask my doctor."
JL has said that she will teach her daughter Maddy to make smart sexual choices. She said "Both her daddy and me will caution her (about having sex), and I would hope that she would not want to do that at all, but I have to make sure that I'm realistic too. I've got to figure out a way to communicate to her to make smart choices and make the best decisions she can."
