Actress, singer, and songwriter Jamie Lynn Spears welcomes a healthy baby girl. Her representative told PEOPLE that her daughter was born on Wednesday, April 11, at 10:02 a.m.
The mom of two and her husband, Jamie Watson, decided on the name of Ivey Joan Watson. Ivey was born in Covington, Louisiana, weighing 7 lbs., 8 oz, and measured 19 1/2 inches long.
“We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family!” Spears, who is the baby sister to Brittany Spears, said, “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.”
Late December of last year, Spears posted a picture of their family captioning details of her pregnancy with their second child.
"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.
Last year, Spears's daughter was in a tragic ATV accident, leaving her unconscious. After consistent prayer and hope in God, her daughter survived. February was the one-year anniversary of that day and she appears to be happy and healthy.
By the grace of God, her daughter survived. Over that tragic time, Spears has gotten closer to God, realizing the power He has.
"We were shown God's grace, and we still feel undeserving of His mercy. I'll never stop thanking each of you for your prayers, because we recognize the miracle it created," she wrote. "We are beyond blessed, and we will NEVER forget y'all, and God's unbelievable mercy."
