    Jamie Lynn Spears' 8-year-old daughter, Maddie, was released from the hospital Friday after being treated following a serious accident involving an ATV in Louisiana earlier in the week.

    Maddie's aunt, Britney Spears, took to social media to share the good news.

    "So grateful that Maddie was able to go home from the hospital today," Spears wrote. "It's truly a miracle."

    Earlier in the week, a Spears family representative (through the hospital treating Maddie) released a statement saying the 8-year-old was "awake and talking" to her family members.

    "With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, February 7. The 8-year-old daughter of entertainer Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, La. 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."

    The statement continued, "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 was not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident."
