NICKELODEON star Jamie Lynn Spears left her child acting days behind her when she started a family.
Since 2014, the sister of Britney Spears has been married to Jamie Watson.
Who is Jamie Lynn Spears’ husband Jamie Watson?
Watson, 39, is a Louisiana native who met Spears, 30, back in 2010 following the split between her and her baby daddy, Casey Aldridge.
He currently runs a company that sells electronics to corporations.
In a TLC special “Jamie Lynn Spears: When the Lights Go Out,” that aired back in 2016, Watson described himself as a “normal guy with a normal job.”
He even admitted to not knowing who Spears was when they first met.
What did Jamie Watson say about his sister-in-law Britney Spears?
After Britney’s emotional testimony at her conservatorship hearing on June 25, 2021, Watson spoke out in support of his sister-in-law.
“I can assure you her family loves her and wants the best for her,” Watson said to the New York Post at the time.
“I wouldn’t be around people who weren’t. Who wouldn’t want to be in support of Britney?”
Her testimony in June of 2021 was the first time in over 13 years that Britney spoke out in open court about the conservatorship that was put in place back in 2008.
Britney called the conservatorship “stupid” and “abusive.”
On Friday, November 12, 2021, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny announced the termination of Britney’s conservatorship.
Do Jamie Lynn Spears and Jamie Watson have children?
The couple have one daughter together: Ivey Joan Watson, three, who was born back in 2018.
“Ivey has brought us so much joy in these past 3 years, it was only fair that we had a celebration just for IVEY, with all of the things that fill her little spirit up with the same joy and love she shares with everyone around her,” Spears said in an Instagram post celebrating Ivey’s third birthday, back in April of 2021.
While the couple only share one child together, Watson is also the stepfather to Spears’ other child, Maddie Briann Aldridge, 13.
Back in 2008, Spears announced that she was pregnant at 16.
At the time, she was starring in the Nickelodeon series Zoey 101, which ended due to her pregnancy.
Following Ivey’s birth in 2018, Spears spoke to PEOPLE magazine about being a mom for a second time.
“As we all know, there was a lot of chaos around my last pregnancy,” she said.
“I would say that being a mom is being a mom: It doesn’t matter if you’re in your teens or not, there should be no excuse to not be a great mother. It doesn’t matter what your age is.”
Spears added that the only thing different between Maddie and Ivey’s pregnancies is the support system around her.
Maddie’s father is Casey Aldridge, 32, who was arrested and charged with five counts of burglary of a storage house and one count of burglary of a dwelling in 2020.
In 2017, when Maddie was 8 years old, she got into an ATV accident.
She and her mom later appeared on an episode of Nickelodeon’s Double Dare, where they won $15,000 to donate to the New Orleans Hospital that helped treat Maddie after the accident.
