It is the happiest of times in the Spears/Watson household! Country singer and songwriter, Jamie Lynn Spears, gave birth to her second daughter yesterday, April 11. The child is the first with her husband of four years, Jamie Watson, and has promoted Spears’ daughter, Maddie Aldridge, to big sister.

According to the PEOPLE article that Spears shared on social media, little Ivey Joan Watson was born in Louisiana at 10:02am and weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz. and measured 19½ inches in length. In her exclusive interview with the publication, Spears exclaimed:

We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family! 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 announced her second pregnancy on Christmas Eve 2017, spreading the news that the family’s 2018 was going to look quite different than years past. With joy and excitement, she posted:

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. [sic] 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. 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. 2018 is going to be filled with many milestones both personally and professionally. I appreciate each of you for your patience and support through it­ all. 2018 has a lot coming, so GET READY……..

Congratulations to the entire Spears/Watson family on their new beautiful addition!
