For the first time since her daughter Maddie's horrific accident, Jamie Lynn Spears is speaking out about what it was like to live every parent's "worst nightmare." She also shared a photo of the 10-year-old who, miraculously, looks as healthy and beautiful as she did before the heart-wrenching ordeal.


This singer/songwriter mama is counting her blessings following her daughter's recovery from a harrowing accident, in which Maddie was trapped underwater for two minutes after the ATV she was riding overturned into a pond. Her lovely little girl has made a stunning recovery after being unconscious for two days. The family was able to celebrate this past weekend at an adorable tot's baptism. 

So sweet!

Spears captioned the photo: "A month ago, at this time, I was living a mothers/anyone's worst nightmare happening right in front of my eyes, helplessly."

So chilling and so true. Just hearing about her daughter's accident was enough to terrify any parent. Thousands of fans reached out to Maddie's mom and aunt Britney to let the family know they were in their thoughts and prayers.

Spears, who truly feels blessed, continued, "Fastforward- Today, we were able to celebrate the baptism of our sweet Kylie Blair. I'm not one to preach, but we were shown God's grace, and we still feel undeserving of His mercy. I'll never stop thanking each of you for your prayers, because we recognize the miracle it created. We are beyond blessed, and we will NEVER forget y'all, and God's unbelievable mercy."

It's such a relief to see this sweet girl doing so well. Last week, the brave mom shared that Maddie "returned to all her normal activities" and even posted a video of her at basketball practice.

When an accident like this happens, it's truly terrifying, but it seems like for the Spears family, it has strengthened their faith and their appreciation for one another. The already-powerful bond they share seems to have only deepened. Their frightening story is a reminder for all parents to never take a split second for granted.
