Earlier this week, the actress, 33, posted an Instagram story, where she revealed, "While getting the kids ready for bed I shut Kington's fingers in the hinge of the bathroom door."

"His first finger is bruised and a little bloody…but his middle finger took the brunt of it and was severed from the first knuckle near the tip," the mother-of-three, who also shares son Ocean King and daughter Rio Rey with her 32-year-old husband, revealed.

Alexa explained that the accident was "the most traumatic thing we've had to go through as a family," and that the scary ordeal brought on "shame" and "mom guilt" on her as a parent.

According to a separate Instagram story, the Spy Kids actor said that doctors were unfortunately unable to "reattach the piece of his finger" that was severed but jokingly added, "But the other nine are so cute! He'll be more than fine!"

As terrifying as the experience was, Alexa feels that it made them stronger as a unit. "Carlos was amazing and swooped in like Superman to take care of our family. It took a minute for all of us to process what happened," the Hunters star wrote on her story.

It really put into perspective how much we love our kids," Carlos said. "Kingston was a champion ... it's like it never happened."
