US presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is trying to exploit teen actress Jamie Lynn's pregnancy in his campaign.

The Republican Baptist minister and the former Arkansas Governor stunned his supporters at a recent rally in Iowa by discussing Spears' dilemma.

"It's a tragedy when a 16-year-old, who is not really prepared for all the responsibilities of adult life, is going to be now faced with all the responsibilities of honest-to-goodness adult life," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

He, however, commended the teenager for deciding to go ahead with her plans to have the child.

"I think that is the right decision, a good decision, and I respect that and appreciate it. I hope it is not an encouragement to other 16-year-olds who think that is the best course of action, but, at the same time, I'm not going to condemn her," he said.

Huckabee also expressed hopes that the 16-year-old would prove to be a good mother to her child.

"I just hope that she will make another right decision and that's to give that child all the love and kindness and care that she can," he said.

The 'Zoey 101' teenage star recently disclosed that she was pregnant with long time beau Casey Aldridge's child. (ANI)
