Britney Spears congratulated her little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, who announced her pregnancy on Sunday, December 24.

As previously reported the actress and singer revealed that she’s expecting her first child with husband Jamie Watson, writing in an Instagram post that her 9-year-old daughter, Maddie, “is FINALLY” getting a sibling.

The Grammy winner chimed in with well wishes, sharing Jamie Lynn’s post on Twitter on Sunday and writing, “Maddie is going to be the best big sister!!! So happy for you @jamielynnspears!!!! Love you all sooo much!!!”

Jamie Lynn, 26, shared a photo on Sunday that revealed her large baby bump as she held hands with Watson and Maddie, her daughter with ex-fiancé Casey Aldridge.

“Looks like we are starting off 2018 with another big milestone,” she captioned the pic. “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 CANT wait to share that with you all very soon.”

“2018 is going to be filled with many milestones both personally and professionally,” she continued. “I appreciate each of you for your patience and support through it­ all. 2018 has a lot coming, so GET READY.”

In February this year, the Zoey 101 alum almost lost her daughter in a terrifying accident after the ATV Maddie was driving flipped over. She was trapped underwater for several minutes and was unconscious before being airlifted to a nearby hospital. Maddie was hospitalized for five days and has since made a full recovery.
