Casey's Uncle: We're Shocked ... And We Aren't

12/20/2007 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ spoke with retired Baptist preacher Odus Jackson, who is Jamie Lynn Spears' baby daddy's uncle by marriage. (You still with us?)


Uncle Odus tells us that Casey is a "fine young man" who has always been courteous. That sentiment is apparently shared by many in his small town of Gloster, Miss., where we've been told over and over again Casey is a good kid from a good family.

As for Jamie Lynn, Uncle Odus says he has only met her once, on Thanksgiving of this year. As for news of her pregnancy, he says he found out, like the rest of us, on Tuesday night. He tells us the family was "shocked' and yet "we aren't." As a pastor, Uncle Odus says he's seen "this type of thing" more often than he'd like.

For the complete interview with Casey's Uncle Odus, check out TMZ TV Thursday night.

Uncle Odus?

Man........don't you mean 'Grand Master Dragon' Odus?

This old dude looks like he keeps his white linens still crisp & ready as a "just in case"! I bet he's calling his old cronies from the local Mississippi AARP to don the hoods and get ready for a Jamie-Lynn lynching!!!

Growing up in the west I often visited Kentwood, LA and towns in Mississippi (both where I had/have relatives) when I was young. Even as a little kid I felt like I was going back in time when I went back there. I guess you can take the redneck out of the south, but not out of the person.

#10 - I feel guilty for laughing but that was really funny.

I am shocked with JLP being so pregnant at such a young age. You would think she learned what not to do from her older sister. She should have been supervised more closely and not given so much freedom. Unfortunately is the sad reality of children who come from divorced parents. She must have been looking for love - or what she thought was love.

On the bright side, she is choosing to be responsible and is not taking the easy way out. I commend her for this. I pray things will be better for her.
