Jamie Lynn Spears: Sister Britney Spears sends engagement congratulations

Jamie Lynn Spears is getting nothing but love from her big sister Britney Spears following the announcement of her engagement. The former “The X Factor” judge took to Twitter to publicly share her excitement for Jamie Lynn and fianc� Jamie Watson.

“So excited and happy for my sister, congrats @jamielynnspears – love you,” Spears tweeted.

This news comes not long after it was revealed that Spears’ own engagement ended. Former fianc� Jason Trawick had popped the question in December 2011, but it was confirmed that the couple parted ways in January 2013.

Jamie Lynn also was engaged in the past. She and the father of her 4-year-old daughter Maddie, Casey Aldridge, were expected to be married, but they broke up in 2010. She and Watson have been dating off and on for three years, and he recently told The New York Post’s Page Six that the time was right for them to get hitched. “We’ve been back together for a while now,” he said.
