Little Women: LA star Briana Renee has posted on social media for the first time since being hospitalized last week when she went into labor prematurely.
A source said that she was “being held until doctors [could] slow down her contractions, minimize her pain and/or she goes into labor.” Briana is six months along, and the doctors were said to be doing everything they could to prevent Renee from giving birth.
“The number one goal right now is to keep the baby from coming out. As a little person giving birth to an average-sized child, she’s already at high risk,” their source said, adding, “She’s being closely monitored right now and prepped for possible surgery. If the surgery happens the baby has to come out, too – which will put everyone at risk.”
This morning Briana shared the following photo, which appears to be from a hospital bed:
She captioned the image, “A new day… New view on life ~ you never know what tomorrow may bring ?? #itsabeautifulmorning #thankful #lifeisagift”
Renee and her husband Matt Ericson’s troubles were a major story line last season. In the finale, it was revealed that Ericson had been sexting other women. During the reunion show, Renee stood by her man.
Renee’s father, Robert Kealiher, spoke with Radar and said that Matt had cut everyone off from Renee. “Nobody has been able to contact her. Matt doesn’t let us speak to her. This guy has control of her phone and he answers her texts,” he said, adding that no one in her family could even verify if she was in the hospital.
The show’s production has been put on hold.
