Posted on

Mindy McCready told reporters after a closed-door child welfare hearing in Arkansas on Tuesday that she was a “happy girl” with the result, reports People. The hearing was called after McCready’s five-year-old son Zander was found hiding with his mother on Friday; Zander’s maternal grandmother Gayle Inge had been his legal guardian. The court’s findings were sealed, but McCready reportedly texted “WE WON!!! ZAN STAYS” to HLN’s Jane Velez Mitchell.
