On Tuesday, Briana’s husband Ryan posted a pic of his wife lying in a hospital bed at UNC Health Care in North Carolina and wrote, “Please keep my wife in your thoughts and prayers! Her lupus is causing inflammation around her heart and is causing it to go in and out of irregular heart rhythms now requiring her to have a cardiac ablation.”

Ryan has since updated fans as well, and let them know Briana “is now at home resting peacefully” after “these rough couple days.” He also thanked fans for “the abundance of messages and comments.”
