Pregnant Christina Perri Reveals Her Baby Will Need Surgery Immediately After Birth
Christina Perri is opening up to fans about her pregnancy complications, revealing her baby will have to have surgery right after birth.
She explained on Instagram Stories, “There’s a lot more that we have to be cautious of. Baby could come at any moment. Basically, there’s a complication with the baby’s intestines. The baby right now is scheduled to have an operation when they arrive. We’ll spend some time in the hospital.”
The singer continued, “We’re going to prepare for [the NICU], but anything could happen. We’re just gonna stay really hopeful. I guess the biggest thing is we hope the baby stays inside and can get as big as possible before this big event they have to go through. It’s just a couple more weeks, so I’m gonna try to take it easy and hope for the best.”
Christina landed in the hospital earlier this week, telling fans, “Baby is having an issue so I’m gonna be here until it’s time for baby to come out. Which might have to be very soon. Which is very early. Please send some love from your heart to the little heart beating in me that we all make it through this. I’m grateful for doctors and nurses and will do whatever they suggest we do.”
Perri, who is married to Paul Costabile, announced the pregnancy in July, six months after suffering a miscarriage. Christina and Paul are also the parents of daughter Carmella, 2.
