Jamie Lynn Spears has claimed her parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, pressured her to get an abortion when she fell pregnant as a teenager.

Jamie Lynn, now 30, was just 16-years-old when she discovered she was carrying the child of then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge.

The singer and actress was the face of a clean-cut TV show on the Nickelodeon channel at the time – with the pregnancy causing a media storm in the USA at the time.

Now writing about her life experiences in a memoir titled Things I Should Have Said, Jamie Lynn has taken aim at her 69-year-old father Jamie and 66-year-old mother Lynne – and has fired both barrels.

In extracts from the memoir obtained by TMZ, Jamie Lynn claims that after telling dad Jamie and mother Lynne that she was pregnant in 2007, they: “came to my room trying to convince me that having a baby at this point in my life was a terrible idea.”

She goes on to claim her parents told her: “‘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’.”

She adds: “Everyone around me just wanted to make this ‘issue’ disappear…everyone was certain that termination would be the best course of action.”

Jamie opted to ignore her parent’s suggestions and carried through her pregnancy and gave birth to her daughter, Maddie Briann Aldridge, on June 19, 2008.

However there was further drama surrounding her decision to have a child as it is claimed her father suggested she give the child up for adoption.

Jamie Lynn was also instructed to conceal her pregnancy from big sister Britney.

She claims: “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.”

She also claims of her mother, Lynne: “Momma wore her disappointment like her favorite jacket” about the pregnancy while she was carrying her daughter.

Jamie Lynn was in a relationship with Casey from 2007 until 2009 – becoming engaged in 2008, but they split before they married.

They reconciled the following year, but split again after three months.

She went on to date businessman Jamie Watson – and became engaged in March 2013, before tying-the-knot in March 2014.

The couple welcomed a daughter named Ivey Joan Watson in April 2018.

Britney – who this year battled to free herself from a 13-year conservatorship which handed control of her personal and financial affairs to her father – claimed she was forced to use IUD contraceptives to prevent her having children.

While she has also blasted her family for not helping her during her time of need and has vowed she may one day tell all in an explosive interview – warning: “Lord have mercy on my family’s souls if I ever do an interview!!!”
