The Bravo celebrity also opened up to OK! about how her life-threatening delivery was due to a medical condition called placenta accreta. The pregnancy issue occurs when the placenta grows too deep into the uterine wall.

As OK! readers know, MJ was placed in the ICU shortly after labor. The doctors at Cedars-Sinai were forced to remove her uterus to save her life.
