Jamie Lynn Spears married her businessman boyfriend Jamie Watson at a park in New Orleans on Friday, with about 200 guests attending. Jamie’s sister Britney Spears and her boyfriend David Lucado flew from Los Angeles to attend the wedding.
Jamie and Watson sparked rumors of getting married after they obtained a marriage license from Tangipahoa Parish Clerk of Courts earlier this month. The couple filed for the document on March 5 and had 30 days from the date of issuance to get married before they would have had to apply for a new license.
The "How Could I Want More" singer announced her engagement more than a year back in an Instagram post, captioning a picture: "Guesssss what??????"
Jamie’s pop-star sister wrote in response to the engagement news: “So excited and happy for my sister, congrats @jamielynnspears - love you."

According to reports, this is the first marriage for Jamie. She was previously engaged to Casey Aldridge, the father of her 4-year-old daughter, Maddie Briann, but the two broke up in early 2010 before tying the knot.
Maddie served as the flower girl during Jamie’s wedding ceremony while Spears's sons Jayden James and Sean were the ring bearers.
Jamie bought her wedding dress with Maddie in January following which she posted a photo of her carrying Maddie and a shopping bag on her Instagram account, with a caption: "Finally found my perfect dress. Thank y'all so much for making me feel so special and being so accommodating!!!!"
In December, Jamie told MTV News about how her romance with Watson inspires her music, particularly the country love song “How Could I Want More.”
"It's a song that's very personal to me, I wrote it about my now fiancé," Jamie Lynn reportedly said at the time.
"I had just moved to Nashville so I was really focusing on working and being a mom and a new town and a new home, so me and him broke up for a little bit so I could really focus on that, so this song was written in that vulnerable moment."
