Jamie Lynn Spears Told She’s ‘Worthless’ Amid Teen PregnancyJune 17, 2023
The former Nickelodeon actress reflects on her struggles as she was facing intense scrutiny when she was pregnant with her first child at the age of 16.
AceShowbiz –Jamie Lynn Spears claims people told her she would “never work again” when she got pregnant at the age of 16. The 32-year-old actress – who happens to be the younger sister of pop legend Britney Spears, 41 – had just completed shooting her hit Nickelodeon series “Zoey 101” in 2007 when she discovered that she was expecting Maddie, now 14, with her then-partner Casey Aldridge and, upon the soundtrack recording for her new movie “Zoey 102“, has recalled how “scared” she was at that time after being told she was “worthless.”
“I couldn’t make the trip to Scotland for this, but I cried when Nancy [Hower, director] sent me these videos, mostly bc it’s absolutely heavenly to hear. Also, I think I get emotional, bc I can’t help but always go back to that scared 16 year old girl who was about to bring a new life into this world, but was told she was worthless and would never work again,” she wrote on Instagram.
The “Steel Magnolias” star – whose upcoming film serves as a sequel to the comedy-drama series that followed the ups and downs of life at a California boarding school – is also mother to Ivey, five, with husband Jamie Watson, 41, and went on to explain that she “didn’t give up” as she fought to create a life for herself and her family and urged her followers to “never give up” on themselves either.
She added, “I didn’t give up, I couldn’t give up, bc I wanted more for my 2 daughters and their futures, so I fought hard every day to create a life for us. Now, there is a freaking orchestra making music for my movie. I am so grateful for everything I have been blessed with. Moments like this are not lost on me. Don’t ever give up on yourself, y’all (sic).”
“Zoey 102” will be released on Paramount+ later this year.
