Despite being a successful actor and singer, Jamie Lynn Spears knew that his sister Britney Spears was a force in the industry. She remembered riding in a car with her sister and appeared.
“Click something in my head on that car journey,” she said The Keeper. “Like, my sister is famous. Famous Mariah Carey. She had created so much power for herself. At that moment I knew I wanted it too. “
Jamie Lynn was famous for the famous Nickelodeon show, Zoey 101. But while filming the series, she realized she was pregnant at the age of 16. “I was really scared,” she admitted TODAY. This meant she had to pivot from building her career and focus on growing up and being a mother.
Pregnancy interrupted Jamie Lynn’s career
The pregnancy meant that she had to take her foot off the pedal on her career. “I had been thinking about the next steps in my career,” she told the Guardian. “But then nothing happened but telling my family that I was pregnant. I had to step to one side; it was a way of survival. ”
“I felt like I was letting people down,” she said TODAY. “Imagine your fear and embarrassment and 25 photographers are following you.”
“So she said to me, ‘You can’t say it here. This is something I didn’t want to do, I did it and now I regret ‘- or whatever it was – that was my secret weapon, “she said. “She walked through the fire and then shared the mysteries with me. Without Britney, I probably would have made a lot of decisions. I probably wouldn’t have appreciated my personal time, wanted to be just a kid, and I might have been told projects I didn’t want to do. ”
