Despite initial accusations that she kidnapped her 5-year-old son Zander last week, Mindy McCready left her child-welfare hearing yesterday in good spirits.
"WE WON!!! ZAN STAYS," McCready wrote in a text message to Headline News' Jane Velez Mitchell last night. "Court details sealed but we love Judge Lee W. Harrod."
McCready took Zander from her mother's Florida home last week (Gayle McCready is Zander's legal guardian), and several days later authorities found the troubled country singer and her son hiding in a closet in Arkansas, at a residence presumed to belong to her boyfriend. It was also recently revealed that McCready is seven months pregnant with twins, which may have helped her earn some sympathy at the hearing.
On Monday, McCready told reporters that she couldn't talk about the ruling but said she's "a happy girl right now." McCready added, "I love Judge Harrod, I'll tell you that. He's a good man."
Wonder who the baby daddy is?
