Eight-year-old Maddie was left unconscious in a pond on the family estate after attempting to avoid a drainage ditch and flipping the ATV. She was airlifted to a nearby hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Her grandfather, Jamie Lynn’s dad Jamie, and aunt Britney Spears urged fans to keep the family in their thoughts and prayers as Maddie fought for life in critical condition on Monday, and it appears those prayers were answered on Tuesday (06Feb17), as the youngster woke up.

“With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, February 7,” a statement from the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Department reads.

“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.”

Doctors have removed a ventilator that was helping to keep Maddie alive, but she is still being monitored closely.

“It appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident,” the statement continues.

A Spears family friend tells Gossip Cop that Maddie is “doing wonderfully” and her recovery is “truly a miracle”.

“It’s truly been amazing,” the source adds. “She has responded miraculously every step of the way.”

And, with St. Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the singer/songwriter confessed he “feels pretty good about” the idea of spending the rest of his life with his girlfriend.

Ed recently told Apple Music DJ Zane Lowe he’s also keen to become a dad.

The Lego House hitmaker started to think seriously about starting a family while he was travelling last year (16), noting, “I wanted to be a dad last year. I’m ready. Let’s go. I want a load of tour bus babies.”

And he has even planned his future around parenthood, revealing he’ll take his kids on the road with him until they start school and then he’ll take an “extended break” and work on producing other artists’ music from a home studio.

“I think Springsteen took an extended break when his kids went to school,” he said. “I think that’s gonna be me.”

Ed and Cherry first started dating in 2015 but they hit the headlines last summer (16) when they were spotted kissing in the background of a party photo pal Taylor Swift posted on social media. Ironically, the bash was staged to partly celebrate the couple’s one-year anniversary.
