OMG, it seems that Britney Spears’ little sister Jamie-Lynn decided that she needed some of the press; because now she is pregnant. The 16 year old star of nickelodeon’s hit television series, Zoey 101 has confirmed to OK!Magazine that she is pregnant by her 19 year old boyfriend of 2+ years, Casey Aldridge, whom she met at church. Jamie broke the news to her mom by giving her a handwritten note in person. Casey was at Jamie Lynn’s side when this happened.
There is no word yet on whether this will affect the contract between Jamie and Nickelodeon; but Nickelodeon did release this statement:
“We respect Jamie Lynn’s decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn’s well being.”
Though no decision has been made; Nick spokesman, Dan Martinsen has confirmed the discussion that there are talks of Nickelodeon considering a special for its young audience about sex and love, which follows the news that of Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy. Also there is no word on if Casey will be facing legal charges because after all in many states it’s illegal for a 19 year old to have sex with a 16 year old.
