Jamie Lynn Spears: God Gave Me the Blessing of Giving Me My Daughter Back

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Jamie Lynn Spears (Nickelodeon’s ZOEY’S 101) thanked God for reviving her daughter Maddie after a life-threatening ATV accident in 2017.

“In that moment I just…spiritually, mentally, everything changed,” Spears said in a new podcast. “I’ve faced my worst fear now. What else can I mess up or do wrong that will be as horrible as that? Nothing. There’s nothing. God gave me the blessing of giving me my daughter back. I lost her and I got her back.”

On the podcast Better Together with Maria Menounos, Spears recalled her fear as a mother.

“I’ve never really talked about it publicly,” Spears told Menounos. “So, without going into too much detail, we were sitting there watching her with every safety measure that could be taken when she somehow or another, drove into the water.”

“There’s nothing worse,” said Spears referring to the life-altering event.

Miraculously, Maddie made a full recovery!

 Menounos commented on Spears’s post about the interview, “What a great reminder of faith and healing. We really are better together. 😘 thank you Jamie always here for you!”

Spears, who is the younger sister of pop diva Britney Spears, took several years off from the Hollywood scene to focus on raising her daughter, Maddie. In that time she got married and had another daughter with husband Jamie (yes, they have the same first name!).
