As you already know, Britney Spears's 16-year-old sister Jamie Lynn is pregnant.
Something about the holiday season, I guess. This time a year ago, Keisha Castle-Hughes was on the big screen as Mary in "The Nativity Story." Off-screen, she was 16 and pregnant.
My favorite tidbit about the Jamie Lynn pregnancy may be this headline from People.com: "Lynne Spears' Parenting Book 'Delayed Indefinitely.' "
"The publisher [The Thomas Nelson company, specializing in inspirational books and Bibles] declined to comment on whether the focus of the book would change in light of the pregnancy announcement," added People.com.
Well, at least it wasn't a book on family planning.
Britney Spears made clear during her second pregnancy that it had not been planned, and it didn't sound as if Brit had done anything to prevent it.
Nor does it appear that Lynne Spears thought much about telling her daughters to be careful in matters sexual. Even with the example of Britney splashed across the tabloids and the Internet, Lynne never imagined Jamie Lynn would get knocked up.
According to People.com, Lynne said in an OK! magazine interview that "I didn't believe (the pregnancy) because Jamie Lynn's always been so conscientious. She's never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby."
Baby Mama, now.
