Congratulations are in order for Jamie Lynn Spears, who welcomed her second daughter, Ivey Joan Watson, today, April 12th. The baby girl is Spears’ first child with her husband, which makes us wonder, who exactly is Spears’ husband?
Spears is married to Jamie Watson, whom she reportedly began dating in 2010. Unlike his high-profile wife, who has a blossoming country music career in addition to being the sister of pop diva Britney Spears, Watson likes to keep things low-key. During a 2016 TLC special, Watson revealed that he didn’t know who Spears was when he started dating her. And even after finding out that Spears was famous, he has remained refreshingly down-to-earth.
What is this “normal job,” you ask? Watson owns his own business, Advanced Media Partners, which sells electronics and TVs to other corporations.
Watson and Spears dated for about three years before getting engaged in 2013. The couple was married on March 14th, 2014.
In the course of his relationship with Spears, it seems that Watson has also come to love the singer’s daughter from a previous relationship, Maddie, like his own. A May 2017 Instagram post from Spears revealed that Watson spent his birthday taking care of his stepdaughter.
Spears announced her second pregnancy in December, with a sweet Instagram photo featuring her, Watson, and Maddie gathered together.
We’re so excited for Spears and Watson, and we’re glad that Spears and her new baby are both healthy. Welcome to the world, Ivey Joan!
