The issue of OK! with the JLS interview is finally on stands. Here are some of the highlights.
1) First, she denies she is living with Casey Aldridge:
Are you guys living together?
No, I live with my mom. He lives with his parents. For now, thatâ€™s the best thing to do. We need to focus on the baby right now.
2) Casey is 18 years old, not 19. DMV records indicate he was born April 29, 1989. This means he is less than two years older than JLS, and as such will be clear of any statutory rape claims.
3) The two of them met — where else? — in church. The very best place to start on the path to teenage pregnancy.
How long have you and Casey been together?
This Christmas, itâ€™ll be about two and a half years, I think. At first, I was just friends with him; Iâ€™ve been friends with him since I was about 14. Then we started dating. I met him at church. He came there with a friend; I came there with a friend. We started talking and then started hanging out.
4) Jamie-Lynn talks more about the pregnancy, claiming Casey was the first person she told:
Who did you call first when your pregnancy was confirmed?
It was probably Casey. It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected. I was in a complete and total shock and so was he.
When did you see him after finding out?
The next day, he wanted to meet me in person to talk about what we had to do. It was something we couldnâ€™t really talk about over the phone. We met and talked about everything and decided what we wanted to do. He was 100 percent supportive, and we figured it out.
Was this planned?
Oh, it was a big shock.
Why did you decide to keep the baby?
I think my whole life I would have to live with knowing what I did or what I didnâ€™t do. Iâ€™m trying to do the right thing. I think that this is what is going to make me happy in the end.
Other people your age might not be brave enough to take on this kind of commitmentâ€¦
Well, I was scared at first. I took the time to think about it for myself, and I though: â€œWhat would be right for me?â€ Iâ€™m the one who has to live with it for the rest of my life. I put myself in this position, an adult position, so I have to act like an adult and take responsibility for what I did. I have really become at peace with the whole situation, and I think itâ€™s the right thing for me to do. Itâ€™s a personal decision that everyone would have to make for themselves. This one is just right for meâ€¦.
What was [your momâ€™s] reaction when you told her you were pregnant?
She didnâ€™t really say anything at first. She just kind of looked at me. It was me and Casey that told her. She didnâ€™t believe us. But then she looked at Casey and heâ€™s always been very straightforward, and then she knew it was real. She was very upset because it wasnâ€™t what she expected at all. A week after, she had time to cope with it and became very supportive.
