Jamie Lynn Spears’ Daughter Celebrates With First Responders Who Saved Her Life
Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter, Maddie, celebrated her ninth birthday on June 18, thanks to two first responders who saved her life.
In February 2017, Maddie was involved in an ATV accident at the family's home in Kentwood, La. Per a report from the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office, Maddie was trying to avoid running over a drainage ditch and overcorrected, running the ATV she was driving into a pond. Spears and her husband Jamie Watson, who is Maddie’s stepfather, were on the scene and tried to rescue her from the water, but she was trapped by the vehicle’s seatbelt and safety netting; an ambulance with first responders arrived within two minutes and freed her.
According to Spears' social media post on Sunday, those first responders' names are John and Victoria, and the actor-singer-songwriter has nothing but gratitude for them.
"My baby is 9 years old today, and more then ever we realize how precious every day is," she begins in a lengthy thank you note. "So, we have to thank these 2 HEROES 🙏🏻 John and Victoria are the first responders, who literally saved Maddie's life, and they were able to celebrate her another year of her life with us this past weekend! Thank God for these amazing people, and thank you God for your amazing grace. We are so blessed today, and everyday with this little angel!"
Spears took some time away from music after the accident, but with her daughter now at full recovery, she has stated she is ready to re-focus on her career.
