"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," the statement read. "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 uplifting news comes just two days after the child accidentally crashed her ATV into a pond on her family's Louisiana property. The accident left her submerged in the pond for nearly two minutes as her mother, Spears, and step-father, Jamie Watson, tried to rescue her.

"Doctors were able to remove the ventilator today and she is awake and talking," the statement continued. "Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident."

Spears shocked the world in 2007 when she announced that she would be leaving Hollywood as a result of her unexpected pregnancy. She shares Maddie with ex-boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, though the couple split two years after her birth.

Maddie's aunt, pop legend Britney Spears, took to Twitter on Monday to ask for prayers from the Britney Army: "Need all the wishes and prayers for my niece," she wrote alongside an adorable picture of Maddie.
