At the moment, everything what she was thinking about was in telling her family and friends. "I was a baby myself, so I couldn't imagine the shock of having one of my own".
Human beings are amazing. She took the mature chance of going back to her town, with her family and friends to give her child and give her a "normal" life away from all the paparazzi in Hollywood.
Jamie Lynn Spears is now more mature than ever, happy with her wonderful family and never regretted the choice she made.
She supports Britney Spears with her conservatorship and is helping her as a part of the legal team who are fighting to regaining her independence from her current tutor, their father James.
The only thing we, as fans, might regret is not being able to enjoy another Spears in stardom.
