Jamie Lynn Spears' 8-year-old daughter was reportedly injured in an ATV accident and is now in stable condition.
According to a report from TMZ, Spears' daughter, Maddie, was in an off-road vehicle that flipped over on February 5. Maddie fell into a lake and "was submerged for several minutes."
TMZ added Maddie was airlifted to a hospital in New Orleans unconscious.
However, a representative for Britney Spears, Maddie's aunt, implied some details of the accident may be false.
The rep told Entertainment Tonight,
The details the media are reporting surrounding the incident regarding Jamie Lynn's daughter Maddie are incorrect. Right now the Spears family asks that everyone respect their privacy during this time and appreciates all the prayers and support for their family.
The father of Jamie Lynn and Britney, Jamie Spears, told ET,
All I can say is pray for our baby Maddie.
Jamie Lynn Spears, 25, currently lives with her husband, Jamie Watson, in Louisiana.
The younger sister of Britney Spears, Jamie Lynn got pregnant at 16 years old, ending her run as her most known-role: Zoey from Nickelodeon's "Zoey 101," which stopped after only four seasons.
Spears gave birth to Maddie on June 19, 2008. She was briefly engaged to Maddie's biological father, Casey Aldridge, who was 18 when Spears got pregnant.
Spears and Aldrigde called the engagement off the next year, and Spears moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music.
Spears met Watson, a businessman, in 2011, and the two were engaged in 2013. They were married in March 2014.
