Jamie Lynn Spears and husband Jamie Watson have welcomed their first child together!
On Wednesday, Spears gave birth to a baby girl, naming her Ivey Joan. Ivey, who weighed 7 lbs., 8 oz., was born in Covington, Louisiana.
Jamie told People magazine, “We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family!”
Ivey’s middle name also holds special meaning for Jamie, who revealed, “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.”
The 27-year-old revealed that she was pregnant in December. At the time, she wrote on Instagram, “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. 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.”
Jamie’s daughter Maddie is her child with ex Casey Aldridge. Last year, Maddie nearly died in an ATV accident.
