Back in December, fans rejoiced at the news that Jamie Lynn Spears was pregnant with her second child. Now, she’s announced even more good news.
And we don’t just mean her sister Britney Spears’ new GLAAD Award — though she did give her big sis a shout-out over it.
Jamie Lynn Spears has welcomed the birth of her baby girl!
Speaking to People, Jamie Lynn Spears spoke of her second daughter, Ivey Joan Watson.
“We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family!”
This newborn baby is the second daughter that Jamie Lynn has had with her husband, Jamie Watson.
“Her middle name, Joan, is to honor my Aunt Sandra, who passed away 10 years ago from ovarian cancer.”
That’s so sad. And so sweet.
“She was the most graceful woman I’ve ever known.”
It’s always good to have an inspirational namesake.
On Instagram, Jamie Lynn linked to the People article, writing:
“Baby Ivey Joan Watson is here!”
Ivy is such a beautiful name, and she’s giving it a unique twist to differentiate it from the type of plant by adding that “E.”
Also, despite her explanation for the middle name, it’s worth noting that Joan Watson is the name of Lucy Liu’s iconic character on the CBS series, Elementary.
When the news broke, some fans immediately began tweeting that perhaps this is not a coincidence.
The People article also includes the exact details.
Ivey Joan was born on Wednesday, April 11, at 10:02 a.m. It’s kind of rare to have such specific numbers from the initial announcement.
(That’ll be helpful for a fan if they’re into astrology and want to do a horoscope for a baby they’ll never meet)
This sweet baby girl was born in Covington, Louisiana, weighing 7 lbs., 8 oz.
That’s above average but not especially large for a newborn.
She measured 19½ inches in length at birth, if the body lengths of newborns born to former Nickelodeon stars who were once the sisters of celebrities are a thing that interest you.
But, as we mentioned, this was not even the only highlight this week for the extended Spears family.
Though Britney is known for not always attending events to which she has been invited, she arrived at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards.
And she brought her unnecessarily attractive boyfriend, Sam Asghari, as her date.
In addition to receiving the 2018 GLAAD Vanguard Award for her role in accelerating acceptance for the LGBTQ community, Britney also “caused” a bit of a disruption.
She didn’t actually do anything other than accept the award.
But other attendees were so excited to see her that there was reportedly a bit of a commotion that slowed down the presentation of awards.
Hey, who wouldn’t be thrilled to bask in Britney’s presence?
Jamie Lynn already has a daughter named Maddie.
Just two months ago, Jamie Lynn was celebrating the anniversary of her daughter’s miraculous recovery from a frighteningly close brush with death.
Maddie is incredibly resilient and pulled through, making an impressive recovery and even returning to school within days.
We’re sure that, having reflected on nearly losing her daughter, Jamie Lynn will pull out all of the stops to make sure that nothing like that can happen to Ivey Joan.
Just as she’s gone above and beyond to ensure that Maddie remains safe.
Congratulations to the Watson family on their newest addition!

Last month, it was revealed that Britney’s ex Kevin Federline has asked for more child support. He is the father of both of her amazing sons.
While Britney treasures her children and would do anything for them, a lot of people are wondering how her current, substantial child support payments are falling short.
Which led to Britney’s father meeting with Kevin’s attorney and demanding to know why Kevin needs more cash.
Reportedly, Britney Spears is pissed that K-Fed is grubbing after more cash.
Really, anyone who’s ever had to pay a bill in their life has some questions about a guy who says that $ 20,000 a month isn’t enough to pay for two kids who only live with him sometimes.
Now, it turns out that someone else is mad about it — her dad.
Jamie (not to be confused with Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney’s sister) is Britney’s father, and he apparently sat down with Kevin’s attorney.
TMZ has details on how that meeting went down, and it does not sound like anybody left the room satisfied.
According to TMZ‘s report, the meeting was set up last week, when Jamie received a letter from K-Fed’s attorney, asking for a sit-down, face-to-face meeting to discuss Kevin’s request for more child support.
Jamie had apparently already been suspicious of why Kevin might “need” more child support money each month. So it’s probably safe to say that he was wary.
It seems that Kevin’s attorney told Jamie at this meeting that, since Jayden and Sean Preston are now 11 and 12 respectively, attending to their needs and wants during his time with them had grown more expensive.
(More than $ 10,000 per month each, apparently)
As you might imagine, Jamie then reportedly asked what exactly the boys needed but Kevin currently couldn’t afford to give them.
Kevin’s attorney apparently couldn’t answer, but told Jamie that Kevin wanted to be able to take care of the boys “at Britney’s level.”
(First of all, nobody is on Britney’s level, so jot that down)
Jamie replied that Britney hasn’t found that her tween sons are suddenly more expensive to look after, and that she’s taking care of them just as she always has.
So … Jamie wasn’t seeing what had really changed.
TMZ‘s sources say that this is when Kevin’s lawyer started singing Britney’s praises and listing her recent successes.
Britney’s Vegas residency has come to an end, and she made bank.
Jamie replied that he didn’t see how Britney’s success suddenly made her sons more expensive to support.
In fact, he didn’t see how that could have any bearing on child support payments. The couple divorced nearly 11 years ago.
Jamie, still suspicious of Kevin’s use of the funds, then pointed out that Britney is not responsible for supporting Kevin Federline’s other children or other families — because Sean Preston and Jayden have four half-siblings.
Besides, Britney paid K-Fed $ 1.3 million when they divorced and paid him spousal support for years. Normally spousal support is intended to help people whose careers were harmed or abandoned for marriage.
It’s difficult to argue that Kevin Federline’s fame or career was in any way worsened by his marriage to one of the most famous pop stars on the planet.
It’s clear from this report that Jamie seems to believe that K-Fed is funneling some of the child support money to unintended purposes, perhaps to himself or to his other children and other families.
And so Jamie apparently believes that any further money would also be misused.
It is possible, however, that Kevin wants to treat his sons, and that he feels increasingly inadequate in the face of their mother, one of the most talented and successful women that the world has ever seen or ever will see.
If it comes down to a court battle rather than a “quiet” settlement, it’s likely that Kevin will be asked to account for how that money is spent on his sons.
In turn, Kevin’s attorney will likely argue that Britney wasn’t actively touring in 2007, and that her newfound success means that the child support agreement should be revisited.
But … if Kevin can’t adequately explain how $ 20,000 a month for two pre-teens isn’t enough, he may find it challenging to be awarded what he wants.
