Jamie Lynn Spears was just a scared teenager when she found out she was pregnant, and couldn’t take the test at home! The Nickelodeon star had to make the life-changing discovery in a gas station bathroom! Click through for the shocking details!
Jamie Lynn Spears was just 16 years old when she found out she was pregnant by boyfriend Casey Aldridge. The then-Zoey 101 star, now 25, explained on the June 25 episode of her TLC show, Jamie Lynn Spears: When The Lights Go Out, that she was too terrified to take a pregnancy test at home when she began feeling sick, so a friend took her to a gas station bathroom instead! Poor Jamie Lynn.
“I don’t know how you can say this without feeling a little tacky. I kept actually throwing up.” she said on the episode, reflecting on her shocking pregnancy. The teenage actress was the star of a hit Nickelodeon tween show, and Britney Spears’ younger sister; the world’s eyes were on her. One of Jamie Lynn’s friends asked her if she could be pregnant, but she refused to believe it. The friend urged her to take a pregnancy test just to be safe.
“We didn’t want to do it at home, so I went in the BP [gas station] and I took a pregnancy test,” Jamie Lynn said. She couldn’t look at the results, so her friend did it for her. And it wasn’t a good sign when her bestie started freaking out! “I was like, ‘What? What? What?'” Obviously, the test said she was pregnant. What a terrifying moment!
Something scarier happened after that. Jamie Lynn had to tell her parents. She was too scared (remember, she was only 16) to say it out loud, so she wrote it down on a note and left it in her parents’ room. They didn’t take the news well. But it’s been nine years, and things are going incredibly well for Jamie Lynn and her beautiful daughter, Maddie, now 8. Jamie married the love of her life, Jamie Watson, in 2014, and she’s now starting a hot new music career! Jamie Lynn is determined to be remembered for “more than getting pregnant at 16,” and after debuting incredible new music at the Grand Ole Opry, that’s definitely going to happen.
