Jamie Lynn Spears has given birth to her second child – a daughter she and husband Jamie Watson have named Ivey Joan.
A rep for Spears told People the former Zoey 101 star gave birth on April 11 in Covington, Louisiana to 7 lb., 8 oz., Ivey Joan.
“We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family,” Spears told People. “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 hardest milestone me and my family have ever faced was almost losing our beautiful Maddie, but thanks to God and the two angels in this picture we were able to celebrate Maddie turning 9 years old all together. This milestone became a true miracle, and we are forever grateful for that. #12DaysOfJLS
Little Ivey will be joining big sister, nine-year-old Maddie, from Jamie’s former relationship with Casey Aldridge. Just last year Maddie was involved in an ATV accident when the vehicle flipped, trapping Maddie underwater for several minutes. Fortunately, help arrived quickly and Maddie made a full recovery after spending less than a week in hospital.
