The 35-year-old also revealed she encountered scary complications in her final moments of her pregnancy.

"Almost 24 hours after being induced, my blood pressure was extremely elevated. I was diagnosed with preeclampsia, which has now turned into HELLP syndrome," she explained. "My doctor said I was lucky, and we caught this just in time to treat as it’s very unusual to be caught so late, in postpartum."

"Until this morning I was on a magnesium drip that made me extremely lethargic and flu-like, shivering uncontrollably to the point where I felt like I was seizing," she continued. "Having not caught this condition in time, that would have been likely. I am still being monitored closely for elevated liver enzymes and low blood platelets and not sure how much longer we will be here."

She concluded by thanking the staff at Cedars-Sinai who treated her and said that the couple was "definitely feeling all the feels and just so excited to be Summer’s parents."
