Jamie Lynn Spears was pregnant in 16

Because she was "really scared" to discuss birth control with her doctor, Britney Spears' little sister Jamie Lynn fell pregnant aged 16. The actress/singer was too nervous to ask for contraception advice but admits she was stunned to learn she was expecting her first child with then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge.

"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... 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." She tells Glamour magazine.
