ICYMI: Jamie Lynn Spears Got Married Yesterday
Cue the wedding bells! Jamie Lynn Spears got married yesterday in New Orleans to her fiancé of just over one year, James Watson. And cue everyone who remembers her starring in Zoey 101 as a teenager suddenly feeling really, really old right about...now.
Spears acquired a marriage license on Thursday, so we knew that she'd be walking down the aisle relatively soon. The two have been together for for a while, and originally shared news of their engagement in March of last year with an Instagram post highlighting a hefty diamond on Spears' finger. Alongside the photo was the caption: :#hedidgood :)." 'Cause if #hedidbad...that'd be bad.
Her five-year-old daughter from her previous relationship with Casey Aldridge, Maddie Aldridge (who's adorable, by the way) was flower girl, and walked down the aisle wearing a white dress. Big sister Britney Spears' boys, Jayden and Sean, were the ring bearers.
Spears walked down the aisle in a Liancarlo gown, which she had purchased back in January at I Do Bridal Couture. Photos of Spears in her dress have slowly been trickling onto Instagram, but none have been posted by the bride herself.
And how cute — Watson apparently goes by "Jamie," so they have the same first name! That's always way better than marrying someone whose last name is your first name, which can be super awkward.
This is Spears' first marriage (and, you know, hopefully her last!). No word if she and Britney sang a duet at the wedding, but if clips show up, you can bet I'll be rejoicing for the love of pop culture siblings.
Congrats to the happy couple!
