Britney Spears’ younger sister Jamie Lynn, 30, is opening up about being pregnant at sixteen years old in her new memoir ‘Things I Should Have Said.’
When Jamie told her parents she was pregnant, she reveals that they expected her to get an abortion! in an excerpt from the book, Jamie writes that her parents: “came to my room trying to convince me that having a baby at this point in my life was a terrible idea. ‘It will kill your career. You are just too young. You don’t know what you’re doing. There are pills you can take. We can help you take care of this problem … I know a doctor’… everyone around me just wanted to make this ‘issue’ disappear…everyone was certain that termination would be the best course of action.”
Jamie adds that her dad was “slinging words and tossing insults” when she said she wanted to keep the baby, and suggested she give him up for adoption. She continues: “I needed her more than ever and she wasn’t able to help me in my most vulnerable time … To this day, the hurt of not being able to tell my sister myself still lingers.” ‘things I Should Have Said’ by Jamie-Lynn Spears is expected to be released on January 18, 2022.
