Another included hashtags in her letter, such as "#TeamChris, #ChrisIsInnocent, #LoveHim, #SooooCute."

Watts, 33, is serving life in prison after pleading guilty to murdering his pregnant wife Shanann and their daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3.

A psychologist told Inside Edition that it's not uncommon for women to dream up a "fantasy life" with men behind bars.

"It is oftentimes what we talk about when women seem to be attracted by bad boys. It is because they want to be the special person that can turn this life around and be able to attribute that to their own self esteem," Dr. Judy Ho told Inside Edition.

Men in prison such as Charles Manson and Ted Bundy famously received dozens of love letters while in prison.
