The Pennsylvania native added, “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.”

On Tuesday, November 10, the pregnant star said that she had been hospitalized, noting that “nothing ever goes as plan[ned].”

She explained at the time: “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.”
