What Spears has been up to before joining the new Netflix series
Toxic hitmaker, Britney Spears is not the only one in the family who has been working with music, as Jamie released a single “How Could I Want More” in 2013. Spears has also been taking care of her two daughters. She gave birth to Maddie Briann Aldridge in 2008 while she was dating Maddie’s father, Casey Aldridge, who she later broke up with in 2011.
In 2014, she tied the knot with her boyfriend Jamie Watson in New Orleans. The couple welcomed an adorable baby daughter, naming her Ivey Joan Watson in 2018. She recently wished Watson on Father’s Day with a lovely post. “Parenting is hard, but thankfully I have a good partner to figure it out with. Happy Fathers Day,” she wrote in the caption as she posted a photo of Watson with Ivey and Maddie.

He had one kid napping in the ball park, while I was with the other one puking in the parking lot, before she rallied and still played her game. Parenting is hard, but thankfully I have a good partner to figure it out with. Happy Fathers Day, I hate you! (He is annoying me as I type this, but still, he’s a really good dad)👨👩👧👧
