Shortly after one Spears’ engagement ended, another has begun! This time, the lucky bride-to-be (assuming she makes it through the full engagement) is Britney’s lil’ sis Jamie. The sister of the X Factor judge is gushing about the recent engagement, as are her numerous fans.
Britney Spears may still be a bit upset about the fact that her engagement didn’t work out, but that’s certainly not stopping the celeb from celebrating news of her sister’s betrothal! She offered up a Twitter congrats after hearing the exciting news: “So excited and happy for my sister, congrats @jamielynnspears – love you.” We’re assuming that, come the wedding, Britney will be the maid of honor, just as Jamie would have been had Britney’s marriage to Jason Trawick actually taken place.
Jamie and her fiance — ironically also named Jamie — have been dating for three years. The couple first started dating just over a year after Jamie gave birth to her daughter. The celeb’s fiance is a 30-year-old businessman who apparently is not one for being in the public eye, as the couple’s relationship has surprisingly been kept on the down low (unlike Jamie’s tumultuous relationship with baby daddy Casey Aldrige).
Her fiance may not be a celebrity bigwig, but he clearly is not lacking for cash. Jamie posted an Instagram shot with the caption “#hedidgood” and, grammatical errors aside, she’s correct — her fiance did an excellent job of choosing a fancy ring that is still surprisingly tasteful when compared to the usual celebrity bling. Still riding off the excitement, Jamie later tweeted, “#blessed #blessed #blessed.”
Congratulations to Jamie Lynn Spears and new fiance Jamie Watson! We wish them a very happy engagement and an even better marriage!
