In excerpts obtained by TMZ, Jamie Lynn, 30, 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.”
“‘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 claims they told her, adding, “everyone around me just wanted to make this ‘issue’ disappear…everyone was certain that termination would be the best course of action.”
Ultimately deciding to follow through with the pregnancy, the “Zoey 101” star got into an argument with dad Jamie, “slinging words and tossing insults” when he suggested she give up her child for adoption.
She also claims she was told not to tell sister Britney about the pregnancy.
“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.”
Eventually, the family struck a deal with Us Weekly to break the news, sharing first photos of baby Maddie, now 13 years old, in 2008.
