Congratulations are in order for Jamie Lynn Spears! The actress has welcomed her second child—her first with husband Jamie Watson—a baby girl named Ivey Joan Watson. Spears has a 9-year-old daughter Maddie from a previous relationship.
According to People, Spears welcomed her baby on Wednesday, April 11 in Covington, Louisiana. “We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family!” Spears told People, along with sharing the first photos of her little girl. “Her middle name, Joan, is to honor my Aunt Sandra, who passed away 10 years ago from ovarian cancer. She was the most graceful woman I’ve ever known.”
Spears revealed her second pregnancy in December, sharing a photo baring her baby bump while holding hands with her daughter and husband. "Looks like we are starting off 2018 with another big milestone...sooo happy to announce that Maddie is FINALLY going to be a big sister," she wrote.
"2017 was filled with some of the biggest challenges of my life, as well as some of the biggest blessings, so I made a choice to lay low this year to focus on truly becoming my best self as a person and as an artist," Spears continued in the lengthy caption. "During that time, I continued working on my music and telling my story, which has created some of my most honest work and I CANT wait to share that with you all very soon."
Congratulations to the happy family!
