An expectant Mindy McCready was in good spirits as she left an Arkansas courthouse following a child-welfare hearing on Monday (December 5).
“WE WON!!! ZAN STAYS,” McCready wrote in a text message to HLN‘s Jane Velez Mitchell that evening. “Court details sealed but we love Judge Lee W. Harrod.”
The hearing was for Mindy’s 5-year-old son Zander after the pair were found hiding in a Heber Springs home Friday night. The troubled country singer, who disappeared with her son a week ago, lost custody of him while she battled substance abuse.
On Monday, she told reporters that she cannot talk about the ruling but said she’s “a happy girl right now.” She added, “I love Judge Harrod, I’ll tell you that. He’s a good man.”
The 36-year-old singer is nearly 7-months pregnant with twins.
