It's been an exciting week for the Spears' household!
Jamie Lynn Spears - the younger sister of Britney Spears - has welcomed another baby girl into the world.
The 27-year-old - who already has nine-year-old daughter Maddie with her former partner Casey Aldridge - took to social media to announce the news, posting a beautiful photo of herself, her husband, Jamie Watson, and Maddie holding the newborn.
She wrote: “Baby Ivey Joan Watson is here.”
Jamie told People magazine: “We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family! Her middle name, Joan, is to honour my Aunt Sandra, who passed away 10 years ago from ovarian cancer. She was the most graceful woman I’ve ever known.”
Ivey was born in Covington, Louisiana, on Wednesday just after 10am.
The newborn weighed in at 7 lbs, 8 oz, with a length of just over 19 inches.
Their new arrival comes after a difficult year for the family, following Maddie's ATV accident.
Her post continued: "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.(sic).”
Ivey is her and Watson's first child together.
