Jamie Lynn Spears Gives Birth To Baby Girl!
Britney Spears' little sister Jamie Lynn has given birth to a baby girl.
The bub is her first with long-term partner Jamie Watson.
Ivey Joan was welcomed to the world weighing 7lbs., 8 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.
Joan is a special tribute to Spears' aunt of the same name, who passed away from ovarian cancer 10 years ago.
It also means Jamie Lynn's first daughter, Maddie Briann Aldridge, 9, is a big sister.
The birth provides some good news for the family after a trying 2017.
Last year Maddie was in a motoring accident involving an ATV overturning and trapping her underwater in a pond.
She was left submerged under water for several minutes and was unconscious at the time of being airlifted to hospital.
Maddie was released from hospital five days later.
Jamie Lynn referenced the incident when announcing her pregnancy on Christmas Eve.
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. 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........ #12DaysofJLS
