Lynne Spears appeared on Wednesday's Today, and not only spoke about Britney's downward spiral, but also about daughter Jamie Lynn getting pregnant at 16.

Lynne, who was interviewed first by Meredith Vieira and later by Al Roker, told Today that she was planning to go out for lunch when Jamie Lynn called and told her to come home.

Once home, Jamie Lynn handed her mother a note and told her to go into her bedroom to read it. Jamie Lynn's boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, was also present at the time, and avoided giving Lynne eye contact.

"It said she was pregnant and everything was going to be OK. She was going to raise it," Lynne told Vieira. "I thought it was a joke I was waiting for the punch line... I was in shock... then I started to cry. And she started consoling me at that point."

Lynne blames herself for her children's personal dramas. "As a mother, don't we always blame ourselves?" she said. "I took a lot of the blame. I took all the blame. The personality I have, it's always my fault."
