NEW YORK (AP) -- The mother of Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears says Jamie Lynn told her she was pregnant in a note.
Lynne Spears said on NBC's "Today" show Wednesday that Jamie Lynn -- 16 years old at the time -- handed her the note and told her to go into the bedroom and read it.
The note said she was pregnant but "everything was gonna be OK, mom" and that she and boyfriend Casey Aldridge were going to raise the baby.
"I thought it was a joke," Spears said in an interview. "... I kept waiting for the punch line."
Spears said she realized it wasn't a joke because Aldridge, a pipe-layer from Liberty, Mississippi, wouldn't look at her.
That's not a joke???
The guy was a pipe-layer! That's a great joke!
I mean, it's a lot of work to pull it off. And now they have to, you know, raise a child and everything--but still!
I used to think Jamie Lynn Spears was an idiot. But she's a comic genius! She makes Andy Kaufman look obvious.
