Living in the Australian bush made Jamie Lynn Spears concerned about the challenges she faced when she became pregnant with her first child, Maddy Aldridge, when she was 16 years old.
On Monday’s episode of the British TV show “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” Spears, 32, cried when she talked about her first pregnancy with fellow contestant Fred Sirix, a French reality TV veteran.
“After I finished Zoe (101),” I had, you know, the love of my life — (or so) I thought — and I got pregnant. And I decided to keep the baby,” Spears said. “The whole world was saying, ‘You’re a bitch. You’re terrible. Your life is over.’ …Because I got pregnant at a young age. “I was in a children’s program.”
Spears previously stated that she became pregnant in 2007 months after filming for the popular Nickelodeon show ended, but it did not cause the show to go on hiatus.
When Sirix asked about her parents, Spears said, “They had a lot going on, but I think they were sad that I was in that situation. But also, your child is having a child.”
As Spears lay in the hammock, tears leaked from the corners of her eyes as she recounted her parents’ reaction to her pregnancy. “When I got pregnant for the first time, they didn’t want me to have a baby, but there were a lot of people around me,” she said.
“What you did is amazing,” Sirix reassured her. “You have a lot of strength of character to do what you did.”

‘Everyone’ told Jamie Lynn Spears she’d be a ‘terrible mother’
“This experience encouraged her to free herself so I could make my own decisions,” Spears told Sirix. When her parents thought she was going to doctor’s appointments, she would secretly meet with a lawyer.
“Poor mom. We made her go through it,” Spears said of the time her lawyer showed up at the family home. “She didn’t want me to do it because she knew it would mean I might marry a father’s child and lose the wealth I had accumulated over the years of working since I was very young.”
Spears was engaged to Casey Aldridge, Maddie’s father, between 2008 and 2010.
Her mother replied, “Just go, honey. Just go,” Spears recounted. “This was the first time I had control of things.”
“Everyone told me I would be a terrible mother, so I said to myself, ‘I have to raise my child myself.’ And that’s what I did,” Spears said. She “had to hide” in a gated house in Mississippi because of the “constant” press coverage, but that He did not prevent photographers from taking pictures of her “in an unknown location.”
“I wanted my baby to be normal,” she said.
When Sirix struck up a conversation with Spears about her “star” family in the second episode of I’m a Celebrity, now in its 23rd season, she explained: “I think every family fights and has their own things. I talked to[Britney Spears]before “Coming here. We love each other.”
In an interview with producers, Spears spoke about her conversation with her co-star. “I’m proud of who I am,” said Spears, who married Jamie Watson in 2014 and gave birth to her second daughter, Ivy Joan Watson, in 2018.
“I’m not sharing it in a way that makes me feel sad or cry about it, but I’m really grateful,” she added.
