The daughter of actress-singer Jamie Lynn Spears, who is also the niece of pop star Britney Spears, is recovering after an ATV accident, her family stated this week.

Jamie Watson, who is the stepfather of Spears’s daughter, wrote an Instagram update about the hospitalized girl, Maddie. “Thank you to everyone for the prayers,” the caption reads.

“Maddie is doing better and better. Thank y’all so much.”

Britney Spears herself posted a Twitter update: “We are so grateful to share that Maddie is making progress. Thank you all for sending thoughts and prayers our way. Let’s all keep praying.”

Maddie was submerged in a lake on her family’s property for about two minutes on Sunday after the freak accident. Her family had difficulty rescuing her before paramedics arrived.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Maddie was “awake and talking.”

It followed two days of reports that said she was in critical condition.
