Christina Perri's pregnancy complications with her second child has seemingly stabilized for the time being.
On Monday (November 16), the singer/songwriter, 34, shared an update on her expectant second child with husband, Paul Costabile, since being hospitalized last week. "So happy to be home enjoying each moment with Carmella before baby comes early. Me and baby are being monitored every other day and will take each moment as it comes," she captioned an Instagram Story of her first child.
"As of now baby is not in any distress. I'm working hard on surrendering and accepting everything I can't control & just putting all my trust in my DRs," she continued. "Thank you again for those reaching out about newborn surgery & NICU stays. I am so thankful we don't have to go through any of this alone."
After the baby scare, Perri revealed that the newborn will have to undergo surgery immediately after being born. "There's a lot more that we have to be cautious of. Baby could come at any moment," she told her followers. "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."
Unfortunately, Perri has reason for concern as she suffered a miscarriage at the top of the year. In an official statement from January, the singer shared the heartbreaking news, writing, "Today I had a miscarriage. Baby was 11 weeks old. We are shocked & completely heartbroken. We were only 1 week away from sharing the news so I feel like it's also important to share this news too. I want to continue to help change the story & stigma around miscarriage, secrecy and shame."
