The 25-year-old actress has taken to social media to mark her eight-year-old child Maddie Aldridge's "first basketball practice" session on Tuesday (21.02.17) just weeks after being hospitalised when an off-road vehicle she was riding flipped over and into a pond.

The former 'Zoey 101' star shared a video of her only child running around the court training with her teammates on her Instagram account.

The post read: "1st Basketball practice today #Godisgood (sic)."

Although Maddie was unconscious for two days following the life-threatening incident, friends and family close to her believe her recovery was a "miracle".

Speaking previously, a source close to the family said: "When she woke up, they said that it was obvious that she recognized them all. Everybody was crying because it was such a miracle."

Jamie has since thanked University and Children's Hospital in New Orleans in Los Angeles for caring for her child, and believes she is "truly blessed" to have her little girl fit and well and back by her side.

Speaking previously, she said: "Thanks to the amazing first responders, and medical teams at University and Children's Hospital in New Orleans, LA, we are headed home with our baby girl as she continues to recover. Above all else we are so thankful for each and every prayer, because we know that is what truly made the difference. Thank you again to everyone. We are truly blessed (sic)."

And Lynn Spears - Maddie's grandmother - has also taken to social media to thank all of those who sent well wishes to her granddaughter.

She wrote: "I really don't know how to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you who have prayed continuous prayers for Maddie at this very difficult time! Thank you, God bless you and I know that the huge outflow of Prayers created this miracle and has humbled my family and I! Maddie is doing great and getting better everyday!! (sic)."
