Congratulations are in order for Jamie Lynn Spears. In a heartfelt message posted Christmas Eve morning, the pop star announced she was expecting her second child with husband Jamie Watson.

"Looks like we are starting off 2018 with another big milestone...sooo happy to announce that Maddie is FINALLY going to be a big sister," Spears started off.

The "Sleepover" singer went on to address her daughter's near fatal ATV crash, which occurred back in February. A freak accident left young Maddie, now nine, in a coma. Miraculously, she made a full recovery.

"2017 was filled with some of the biggest challenges of my life, as well as some of the biggest blessings," Spears continued, "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. I appreciate each of you for your patience and support through it­ all. 2018 has a lot coming, so GET READY."

Naturally, big sister Britney Spears was ecstatic.

"Maddie is going to be the best big sister!!!" she wrote on Twitter. "So happy for you @jamielynnspears!!!! Love you all sooo much!!!"

Congrats to the growing Spears fam!
