Jamie Lynn Spears' Father: Please Pray for Maddie…

by at .

Jamie Lynn Spears and her loved ones are asking for your thoughts and prayers.

As previously reported, the eight-year old daughter of this former actress was involved in an ATV accident over the weekend, suffering major injuries on her way back from a hunting expedition in Louisiana.

Maddie was air-lifted to a hospital, TMZ reports, following what the site describes as "several minutes" under water.

The little girl lost consciousness as a result of the crash.

Maddie is Jamie Lynn's only child.

She was born to Spears and then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge in the summer of 2008 and Spears has basically abandoned the spotlight ever since becoming a mother.

She has dedicated herself to the upbringing of her daughter.

In response to this tragedy, Jamie Lynn's father, Jamie, spoke to Entertainment Tonight and simply said the following:

"All I can say is pray for our baby Maddie."

There are not many specifics available at this time regarding Maddie's condition or what, exactly happened to her.

The eight-year old is clearly in critical condition, but a rep for the Spears family has told various outlets that TMZ's initial story is not entirely accurate.

"The details the media are reporting surrounding the incident regarding Jamie Lynn's daughter Maddie are incorrect," reads this rep's statement.

It concluded:

"Right now the Spears family asks that everyone respect their privacy during this time and appreciates all the prayers and support for their family."

Spears, 25, is the younger sister of Britney Spears. She got married to Jamie Watson in 2014 and has kept a relatively low profile for years.

Jamie Lynn has told People Magazine is the past that raising Maddie to be "happy" and "content" is her most "proud" accomplishment in life.

She also said the following to Entertainment Tonight, regarding life at home for her, Watson and Maddie:

"We are very strict on what she eats and different things like that, but my husband is very strict on most everything.

"I would say I am cool at times, but [Maddie] is getting to that age now where if I want to dance around with her and friends, that is not that cool anymore. 

"She is kind of like, 'Mom! Don't do that,' which is really weird for me because I used to love that!"

Hey, all parents have been there, Jamie Lynn.

We'll be praying that you get a chance to embarrass your child many times over going forward.

May she have a full recovery.
