Tweets have been pouring in as fans send out heartfelt messages showing their support to the family.

Jamie had Maddie at the age of 16, soon after she shot to fame for her portrayal of Zoey Brooks on the popular Nickelodeon show Zoey 101.

The show which, first made its debut in 2005, lasted for four season and was cancelled in 2008 shortly after Jamie announced her pregnancy, Daily Mail reported.

Further details surrounding the condition of Maddie are still unknown.
