Jamie Lynn Spears' husband Jamie Watson posted this photo on Instagram with the caption, "Thank you to everyone for the prayers. Maddie is doing better and better. Thank y'all so much."
Before Jamie posted this, a statement was released by her hospital. People magazine reported, "With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, Feb. 7. The 8-year-old daughter of entertainer Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, Louisiana. Paramedics resuscitated her and she was airlifted to a local hospital. She is aware of her surroundings and recognizes those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident.
Doctors were able to remove the ventilator today and she is awake and talking. Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident."
Our continued prayers and thoughts are with the entire family as Maddie continues on the road to recovery.
Update 2/7/2017: Britney Spears has broken her silence on social media, asking her fans and followers to pray for her niece Maddie Aldridge after she suffered a terrible accident.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Spears family at this very difficult time.
It's being reported that Zoey 101 star Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter, Maddie Aldridge, is in critical condition after getting into a serious ATV accident over the weekend. Jamie was supposedly just about 100 yards away from her daughter when everything happened.
According to TMZ, Maddie was riding a Polaris off-road vehicle, which is also known as an ATV. She was in her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana when the ATV flipped over into a pond. Reports are saying that Maddie was under water for a few minutes and unconscious before being airlifted to a hospital.
The details seem terrifying.
While Jamie Lynn hasn't released a statement herself, a representative for the family has spoken out. The rep told People, "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."
With something like this, there's bound to be lots of stories and facts going around that might be half true or even downright false. It's important to note that the Spears family seems to be dealing with this in their own private way and fans should respect that. We have a feeling they will disclose Maddie's current condition and what went down when they feel the time is right.
Jamie Lynn's dad, Jamie Spears, spoke out and told ET, "All I can say is pray for our baby Maddie." None of the other family members including Britney Spears have given any word about the incident or Maddie's condition.
After Zoey 101 wrapped filming, Jamie Lynn focused on this new journey ahead of her – becoming a mom! In 2008 Maddie was born and Jamie Lynn moved to Mississippi with her daughter and then fiance and father of her child, Casey Aldridge. The pair split in 2009. In 2014, Jamie Lynn married her current husband, Jamie Watson.
Until more details are released, we will continue to keep Maddie, Jamie Lynn and the rest of the family in our thoughts.
