On Valentine’s Day, Jamie Lynn Spears posted about the eventful day she had with her oldest daughter, Maddie.
Sharing a photo of Maddie in a bandage wrapped splint on her right wrist on a hospital bed, she wrote, “This one keeps us on our toes, no matter what the occasion is… little accident at recess today, but nothing too serious.”

This one keeps us on our toes, no matter what the occasion is… little accident at recess today, but nothing too serious. Thanks to everyone who helped us get this checked on quick, and everyone who text to check in! *it is much easier to just post this, then respond to every text, because I’ll forget to respond, and then I’m being rude. #HappyValentinesDay
She didn’t explain what the actual injury was, but on her Instagram stories on Monday (Feb 17), she revealed that the doctor’s diagnosis was a buckle fracture, which will take 4-6 weeks to heal.
A buckle fracture, according to KidsHealth.org, is when “one side of a bone bends, raising a little buckle, without breaking the other side of the bone.” It often happens to children around 10 years old or younger because their bones are softer and a bit more flexible than adult bones.
We’re glad this is a relatively quick healing process for the young girl, who has already been through one miracle in her short lifetime.
On February 5th three years ago, young Maddie was hospitalized after an ATV accident which caused her to flip into a pond.
According to a police report released to PEOPLE, the then-eight-year-old was instantly submerged and “within seconds the child’s mother, stepfather and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail. The child was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV’s safety netting. Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing the child from the cold waters.”
Maddie was airlifted to a nearby hospital where she was admitted in critical condition. In what can only be called a miracle, the child was released from the hospital just 5 days after the accident.
