Jamie Lynn Spears isn’t pregnant, say sources

This morning when the news came out that Jamie Lynn Spears, 17, was pregnant with her second child less than four months after having her first a lot of people were willing to believe it, including us. In fact I’m still not convinced that there wasn’t some truth to it – like maybe she had a pregnancy scare or something. Her sister Britney had her second child just about a year after her first, so that kind of fertility seems to run in her family and you could easily imagine the same thing happening to Jamie Lynn.

It’s not true, though, according to TMZ and OK!. There’s a cover story on OK! this week featuring Jamie Lynn and her fiance, Casey Aldridge, in which they respond to the multiple infidelity rumors about Casey. The accompanying teaser article about how well they’re doing isn’t that convincing, though, and neither is OK!’s denial of the pregnancy. They just say Jamie Lynn told them she wasn’t pregnant and dismiss it as gossip. TMZ claims they have it from an “unimpeachable source” that she isn’t. Does that mean that her rep told them off the record that she’s not?

It doesn’t seem likely that Jamie Lynn would get in the family way again so soon after having her first, but the story originated in the National Enquirer and they’re usually right about those big stories even if people like to dismiss them at first. They may have had it wrong, though, and it could have been just a scare or a rumor. It’s for the best if Jamie Lynn really isn’t pregnant again. Two children in about a year is too much for any teen to handle.

    That last sentence made me barf a little.

  2. Alecto says:

    Of course she’s not preggers. She got rid of it yesterday.

    It’s a big news day for Jamie Lynn, isn’t it? I say: no use backpaddling now and as for the mags, no use trying to outscoop the Enquirer now.

    Then again, it truly would be better for that girl not to be expecting again.

    And two children in about a year isn’t only possibly too much for a teen to handle. I think that’d be a lot to handle at any age.

    That child doesn’t need another child. Not with all of the drama and a history of mental illness in her family.

    Babies having babies. I really believe the “abistinance only” sex education our children recieve is doing a HUGE disservice to our kids.

    And although I think primarily it should be the parents having a talk with their child about sexual health issues, schools aren’t doing anyone a favor by NOT educating our children about responsibility and accountability when it comes to sex at such a young age.

    I really hope for her sake that the story is false.

    I’m sorry, but I think blaming sex education or lack thereof for this type of thing is naive.

    It’s like the idea of “educating smokers.”

    You can show kids black lungs. You can have them sit through talks from people with emphysema and people with those false voice boxes because they lost their own larynx. Kids will still smoke.

    You can show kids pictures of VD’s, let them talk to teen mothers who wish they’d never done it. Etcetera. In the end, they’re still gonna get themselves knocked up.

    …because they’re teenagers. They have the attention span of fruit flies and they have the judgement of a drunk monkey. It’s the way it is. I remember being that age. Everything is emotionally-driven.

    Sex-Ed is not the issue…though it sure is fun to make fun of the Puritans by pretending it is. The total disappearance of social consequences for being knocked up at 16 is one of the many issues. 20 years ago, this young lady’s career would be over because of all this. She might have thought twice about doing it if that were still the case.

    Social guilt and peer pressure have their place. People don’t like to admit that anymore, but it’s true whether you agree with me or not.

    Aspen – Showing kids pictures of VD does not a sex education make. You are right – focusing on and emphasizing the negative consequences of sex is outdated, and kids don’t listen to it. This has been known for decades, yet the same tired-ass, abstinence-focused sex ed courses are still implemented and IT DOESN’T WORK.
    (Case in point: My junior class was horrified to learn that condoms were only 80% effective, so why bother having sex because even with condoms, you could still get the HIV? This didn’t stop kids from having sex. The ones who were boning continued to bone – sans rubber. Why bother, right? But when schools insist on scare-mongering instead of fact-telling, you see a lot of the “Why bother” attitude. This was 2001, by the way. )

    Kids retain more than you give them credit for. ( ) Sex education has to be a comprehensive, honest survey of a wide range of issues pertaining to sexuality – dealing with everything from the logistics, to the emotional appeal, to the everyday consequences. (Real consequences – not insisting that every makeout session will give you AIDS. I’m talking about the practical side of things – like the awkward morning after, or the change of the dynamic of a relationship, and so forth.)

    Bottom line – The idea of a sex education isn’t to prevent kids from having sex. It’s to encourage kids who are sexually active to be safe and responsible. Sure accidents happen. But they are less liable to happen if an individual is empowered through education.

    Please: let the facts speak…Do you know the number of teen pregnancy in the States? (96 pregnancy for 1000 girls between 15 and 18 years old). Have you ever try to compare it with other countries in the world? (Canada: 41/1000, France: 24/1000, Sweden 10/1000…). How can you say that education doesn’t make a difference?

    i feel kinda bad for jamie lynn. yeah, she made a mistake by getting pregnant but shes taking care of it. (however, all of the magazine covers are a little much, the smart thing to do would be to lay low for a while…). but the enquirer stirring up trouble is just wrong. shes still just a kid, albeit a kid with a kid.
    i can just imagine how humilliating it was when the news came out that she was preg. with maddie, but this is just too much. and im speaking as thought this ISNT true. which i hope its not.
    NOW, if it is…yikes. :lol:
