Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy has hit home for Rosie O'Donnell.

The former View co-host says her 10-year-old daughter Chelsea asked about the 16-year-old Spears's baby news.

O'Donnell, 45, recounted the conversation in response to a question from a fan who wrote to her blog asking her "as a celeb & a mom," what Nickelodeon should do about Zoey 101.

O'Donnell says she talked to Chelsea about Britney Spears's younger sister and, as described in O'Donnell's blog-speak, "Here's how it went," she says.

"Mama u know the lady with the umbrella and no hair," Chelsea said. "Her sister is a teenager and she is having twin babies." (Actually, she only announced she was pregnant).

"And what do u think about that Chels?" asked O'Donnell.

"Teenagers can have babies?" her daughter asked.

"Yes they can, and it is never a good idea," she responded.

"Y didn't she take pills that make u not have a baby?"

O'Donnell's response: "Hmmmmmm."
