MADDIE BRIANN ALDRIDGE WAS BORN WHEN JAMIE LYNN SPEARS WAS 17

On June 19, 2008, Jamie Lynn gave birth to Maddie Briann Aldridge in McComb, Mississippi. The baby news shocked the Spears family's fans because Jamie Lynn was only 17 years old.

Some media outlets were not any kinder as they would claim Maddie ruined Jamie Lynn's career. Britney Spears' sister denied that statement and said she didn't want Maddie to read that. Jamie Lynn added:

"I'm about to have a baby, and honestly, what made me more mad [sic] was like… I don't want my daughter to think that her mom's a piece of [expletive]."

HER PARENTS CHOSE A NAME WITH A SPECIAL MEANING

Three weeks after Jamie Lynn's daughter was born, she introduced her to the world on the cover of OK! Magazine. The actress explained that her then-fiancé, Casey Aldridge, came up with their daughter's first name, Maddie.

Her middle name, Briann, has a special meaning. The former couple chose it to honor Aldridge's cousin, Brian, who sadly passed away in a car accident weeks before her birth, and Jamie Lynn's older brother, Bryan Spears.

Maddie's softball team, the Louisiana Swarm, won the 2022 World Series in the 14-and-under category.

SHE MIRACULOUSLY SURVIVED AFTER AN ATV ACCIDENT

Unfortunately, Maddie Briann Aldridge almost died when she was only eight. In February 2017, Maddie drove an ATV that flipped into a pond. The child had her seatbelt on, so Jamie Lynn and her husband, Jamie Watson, couldn't pull her out.

First responders quickly arrived at the scene, got Maddie out of the water, and took her to a nearby hospital. She was in critical condition, and her family thought they would never see her again.

Once in the hospital, doctors couldn't get any response from Maddie, so Jamie Lynn got her priest, Father Mark, into her ICU room. As soon as he read the rites and put the oil on Maddie, she "sat up and started kicking" and grabbing everything around her.

Maddie lost consciousness again, but it gave everyone hope that she was still fighting for her life. She recovered a few days later and needed only a few months to return to school and play sports. Since then, Jamie Lynn and her family celebrate the "miracle anniversary" each year.
