As the country singer-songwriter alludes to, this past year definitely had a major personal challenge when Maddie was injured in an accident in early February when the ATV she was riding rolled and immersed her underwater for several minutes. Thanks to the quick action of family and first responders, and the prayers of fans, Maddie is, miraculously, doing well, but the incident did inspire Jamie Lynn to step away from the spotlight for a moment to spend more time with her family.

The mom-to-be doesn’t announce a due date or gender, but from the looks of that gorgeous photo, she is already showing. And from the sounds of that caption, she isn’t just delivering a baby in 2018, she’s also bringing new music into the world.

Jamie Lynn’s first set, the 2014 EP titled “The Journey,” produced the Top 30 single “How Could I Want More.” She also co-wrote the Jana Kramer hit, “I Got the Boy” and made her Grand Ole Opry debut, introduced by sister Britney, in 2016. And while she makes frequent visits to Nashville for work, Jamie Lynn, Jamie and Maddie make their home in Louisiana.

This is Jamie Lynn and Jamie’s first child together. Jamie Lynn’s daughter, Maddie, is from a previous relationship.
