Since Jamie Watson was caught peeking at Britney Spears’ Instagram pics, fans have been asking: “who the heck is Jamie Lynn Spears’ husband?” Despite popping up in the news recently, Jamie Lynn’s husband is usually pretty low-key.
Here are five things you may not know about him …
1. He’s Team #FreeBritney
Britney Spears’ conservatorship has been highly controversial. But not for Jamie Watson! Britney’s brother-in-law has come out in support of the pop star.
He spoke to the New York Post saying “I can assure you her family loves her and wants the best for her. I wouldn’t be around people who weren’t. Who wouldn’t want to be in support of Britney?”
2. He Didn’t Know Who Jamie Lynn Was When They Met
Jamie Watson and his future wife met through mutual friends in 2010. When the pair met, he didn’t even know that Jamie Lynn had a famous sister! “I did not know about the family. I didn’t know she had a TV show. I didn’t know anything about her.”
If we’re being honest, the man must have been living under a rock if he didn’t watch the incredible TV show Zoey 101!
3. He Sells Electronics For a Living
Jamie Watson has described himself as a “normal guy with a normal job.” That job is apparently selling electronics. The Louisiana native runs his own company where he sells electronics to big corporations.
Jamie Lynn Spears’ husband might not be singing on stage and acting in his own TV show, but his job sounds pretty cool!
4. He’s a Daddy
In 2018, the couple welcomed a daughter named Ivey Joan Watson. The little girl is now 3, and she just celebrated her birthday back in April. According to her mother, Ivey is an absolute joy.
Jamie Watson is also stepfather to 13-year-old Maddie Briann Aldridge, who Jamie Lynn had with her ex-fiancé, Casey Aldridge. The former TV star’s first pregnancy was famous because it caused her to leave Zoey 101 and have her daughter at 16.
The father of two said that he knew he wanted to marry Jamie Lynn after getting to know Maddie, who was 8 at the time. “I knew I wanted to marry her when basically I had fallen in love with Maddie just as much as her. And I couldn’t not be a part of her or Maddie’s life.”
5. His Relationship With Jamie Lynn Wasn’t Always Perfect
Before Jamie Watson and Jamie Lynn got married they actually broke up a few times! The pair did a TLC special in 2016, and it was revealed that they didn’t fall in love at first sight.
Jamie Watson says they had to grow together and learn to love each other. Jamie Lynn says that she didn’t like her future husband right away, describing him as “kind of awkward and kind of weird.”
But that’s all behind them now. And they couldn’t be more in love.
