(CBS/AP) Mindy McCready's people aren't saying anything about what happened in her closed-court hearing Monday, but she told one of the reporters outside of the courtroom she's a "happy girl."

The custody hearing concerning  McCready's five-year-old son Zander was held in Melbourne, Ark.

"I can't talk about it, but I can tell you all I'm a happy girl," McCready said to reporters gathered outside the Izard County courtroom, reports ABC News.

The country singer's publicist says all prodeedings and documentation surrounding the hearing are sealed and no further information is available at this time.

According to a text message sent from McCready to HLN's Jane Valez Mitchell, the singer exclaimed that she won custody of her son at the hearing.

"WE WON!!! ZAN STAYS," McCready wrote, according to ABC News. "Court details sealed but we love Judge Lee W Harrod."

Over the weekend, McCready, who is pregnant with twins, and her son were found at a home in Arkansas. Authorities took the boy away. Last week, a judge in Florida signed an order telling authorities to take the boy into custody and return him to McCready's mother, who is his legal guardian.
