Her name is certainly unique.

Jamie Lynn Spears has reportedly given birth to her second child – a little girl.

The actress and her husband, Jamie Watson, welcomed their first child together on Wednesday, according to People.

The publication reports that the little girl’s name is Ivey Joan Watson.

Proud mum Jamie Lynn said that the family were “beyond excited” with little Ivey’s arrival as she revealed the inspiration behind the name.

She told the news outlet:

“Her middle name, Joan, is to honor my Aunt Sandra, who passed away 10 years ago from ovarian cancer.

“She was the most graceful woman I’ve ever known.”

The couple confirmed in December 2017 that they were expecting their first child, using a sweet photo that included Spears’ daughter, Maddie Briann.

The 27-year-old captioned the post:

“Looks like we are starting off 2018 with another big milestone … sooo happy to announce that Maddie is FINALLY going to be a big sister.

“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 [CAN’T] wait to share that with you all very soon. 2018 is going to be filled with many milestones both personally and professionally.”
