Good news for Mindy McCready.
The 36-year-old country star told reporters Monday outside an Arkansas courthouse that while she couldn't talk specifically about the custody hearing for her son, she was "a happy girl."
Inside the closed door session, a judge determined whether McCready, who is pregnant with twins, would reclaim custody of her 5-year-old son Zander. (It's unclear whether the judge granted her permanent or temporary custody.)
She first made headlines last week when authorities said she and her son -- whose legal guardian is McCready's mother -- disappeared from her father's Cape Coral, Fla., home Tuesday evening.
After she and her son were declared missing; she was then been ordered by a judge to bring the child back to Florida, which she was unable to do.
In an interview with the Associated Press, McCready accused her mother of abusing Zander; the child's grandmother said the claims are "absolutely not true."
After McCready and Zander were found, the singer's publicist quickly refuted claims that she abducted her son, adding that both she and Zander were "safe, healthy and comfortable."
Following Monday's closed hearing, McCready's camp issued a statement to E! News confirming that "Mindy and Zander both remain in Arkansas at this time" and that "Zander remains with a foster care family" there.
