Britney Spears Says Niece Maddie Is ‘Making Progress’

On the mend. Britney Spears shared that her niece, Maddie Aldridge, is recovering after almost drowning in an ATV accident on Sunday, February 5.

“We are so grateful to share that Maddie is making progress,” Spears shared via Instagram on Wednesday, February 8. “Thank you all for sending thoughts and prayers our way. Let’s all keep praying.”

The pop star’s update comes after Maddie’s stepfather, Jamie Watson, took to social media on Tuesday to share that she’s indeed doing “better and better.”

A source tells Us Weekly that the 8-year-old is still in the hospital and will remain in the hospital for a few more days while doctors monitor her for complications related to near-drowning. As previously reported, the Children’s Hospital revealed via a statement to Us on Tuesday that Maddie, the daughter of Jamie Lynn Spears and ex Casey Aldridge, is awake and talking after being hospitalized in critical condition.
