OK, it's a teen pregnancy, but will Jamie Lynn Spears' child be born out of wedlock? Possibly, seeing as some reports claim she and Casey Aldridge are on the outs, and have been for a while. "They may or may not [get married]," Aldridge's Uncle Odus said in a Thursday interview cited by People. "I hope they will stick it out and get married for the child's sake and their sake, but if they're not in love and it was just a fantasy, they don't need to make the same mistake twice."

About that first mistake... though many have wondered, "Could Casey face a statutory rape charge?" given his seniority over 16-year-old Jamie Lynn, the Mississippi DMV has confirmed the lad's birth date as April 29, 1989, making him 18. As such, he's in the clear (if not morally). Were Casey 19, Louisiana law could have charged him with felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, which has a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Instead, he gets six months in the headlines.
