Yesterday, actress and country singer Jamie Lynn Spears took to Instagram to praise God for her daughter's miraculous recovery.

Last year, the oldest daughter of Spears—who is the younger sister of singer Britney Spears—had a near-death accident, reported People. 

On February 5th, 2017, Spear's daughter, Maddie Briann‘s flipped her ATV into a pond and nearly drowned on Spears and stepdad Jamie Watson‘s Kentwood, Louisiana, property.

On the “miracle anniversary,” the 26-year-old, who is also expecting her second child and first with husband Watson, shared a throwback black-and-white snap of her and her daughter, now 9½, in the hospital.

“1 year Miracle Anniversary,” she wrote. “THANK YALL for your prayers during that time, and THANK YOU GOD for my beautiful family.”

After Maddie’s ATV flipped over, the little girl was under the water for several minutes as Spears and others attempted to free her from the vehicle’s safety netting and seat belt.

After they freed her from the ATV, Maddie was airlifted to the Children’s Hospital in New Orleans. She remained unconscious for two days after her accident.

Maddie, whose father is Spears’ ex-fiancé Casey Aldridge, ultimately woke up. She was released from care only five days after the accident. Spears later revealed that her daughter had “fully recovered” and even returned to playing sports.

In December, while reflecting on the difficult year, Spears shared an image of the two paramedics responsible for saving her daughter’s life.

“The hardest milestone me and my family have ever faced was almost losing our beautiful Maddie, but thanks to God and the two angels in this picture we were able to celebrate Maddie turning 9 years old all together,” Spears wrote in the caption. “This milestone became a true miracle, and we are forever grateful for that. #12DaysOfJLS.”

The two paramedics attended Maddie’s 9th birthday party in June. At the time, Spears thanked them in an Instagram post.

“My baby is 9 years old today, and more than ever we realize how precious every day is. So, we have to thank these 2 HEROS John and Victoria are the first responders, who literally saved Maddie’s life, and they were able to celebrate her another year of her life with us this past weekend!” she captioned the original snap of the two with the birthday girl.

She added, “Thank God for these amazing people, and thank you God for your amazing grace,” Spears added. “We are so blessed today, and every day with this little angel! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADDIE.”
