Jamie Lynn Spears Opens Up About Daughter Maddie's Accident

After a terrifying ordeal and an emotional few days spent in hospital, Jamie Lynn Spears has spoken out about daughter Maddie's accident for the first time. 

The eight-year-old had to be rescued by emergency services when the ATV she was driving flipped and crashed into a pond, trapping her underwater as her horrified family looked on. 

But, 10 days later, Jamie Lynn has spoken out about little Maddie's recovery in a sweet Instagram post for Valentine's Day.

"Maddie isn't quite ready to return to school, but her doctors did clear her to bring in her Valentine's Day treats to her class today," the singer and actor wrote. "It made her so happy to see her friends, and be able to give them such cute treats.

"It was a great moment for us after everything that has happened. We are so thankful to celebrate Valentine's Day with the ones we love, and we don't take a second of it for granted."

Jamie Lynn had revealed earlier in the week that Maddie was on her way home from hospital, thanking the "amazing responders, and medical teams and University and Children's Hospital in New Orleans."

She continued: "Above all else, we are so thankful for each and every prayer, because we know that is what truly made the difference.

"Thank you again to everyone. We are truly blessed."
