Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter Maddie is reportedly in critical condition after being seriously hurt in an ATV accident on Sunday while out on a “hunting expedition.”
The first reports released on Feb. 5 by TMZ stated that the elementary aged little girl was riding in a Polaris off-road vehicle when it flipped over and she became trapped under water and unconscious for several minutes.
Jamie Lynn has not publicly made a statement about her daughter’s condition but her father, Jamie Spears told Entertainment Tonight that, “All I can say is pray for our baby Maddie.”
In a statement released by a rep for Jamie Lynn on Monday it asked for the public to continue to pray for Maddie’s health.
“The details the media are reporting surrounding the incident regarding Jamie Lynn’s daughter Maddie are incorrect. Right now the Spears family asks that everyone respect their privacy during this time and appreciates all the prayers and support for their family,” Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears rep said.
Jamie Lynn is best known for her role on Disney’s “Zoey 101” and since leaving the network, she has worked towards becoming a country music star, spending time with her family and sharing the word of God with her children.
Social media has showered the mother with love and thousands of prayers.
