Another added: ‘Congrats on the new baby y’all are a beautiful family, I didn’t even know you were that far along!’. While a third said: ‘Congratulations!! You look radiant 😍😭’.

Speaking to People magazine about the newest member of the family, Jamie-Lynn said: ‘We are beyond excited to welcome this beautiful baby girl to our family!’

The singer and actress also explained the couple’s name choice. She said: ‘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.’

The mum-of-two announced that she was expecting a baby with husband Jamie Watson last December, on Christmas Eve.

Jamie-Lynn is already mum to nine-year-old Maddie, who now has another little sister to play with.

Jamie and Jamie-Lynn got married in 2014 and Ivey is their first child together. Maddie’s father is Jamie-Lynn’s ex-fiance Casey Aldridge.

She was just 16-years-old at the time when she gave birth to Maddie as her and Casey’s relationship had blossomed from their time together on the show Zoey-101.

Maddie was involved in a horrific accident last year that led to the little girl having to be resuscitated and taken to hospital by  air ambulance.

Thankfully she made a full recovery and will likely be excited to start on her big sister duties as soon as possible.

During her pregnancy announcement Jamie-Lynn said that Maddie was ‘finally’ going to be a big sister so 2018 is already a much happier year for the whole family.
