The world was shocked following the announcement that Hailey Bieber was rushed to hospital after experiencing stroke-like symptoms caused by a blood clot in her brain.
Thankfully, the 25-year-old supermodel has now been released from the Palm Springs-based hospital, and even issued an update for her fans who understandably were beside themselves with worry!
“On Thursday morning, I was sitting at breakfast with my husband when I started having stroke like symptoms and was taken to the hospital,” Hailey wrote on her Instagram Story.
“They found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which caused a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours.
“Although this was definitely one of the scariest moments I’ve ever been through, I’m home now and doing well, and I’m so grateful and thankful to all the amazing doctors and nurses who took care of me!
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes and concern, and for all the support and love.”
Hailey hasn’t gone into any more details about what could have caused the blood clot, although many fans are speculating that it could be COVID-19 related, as Justin Bieber tested positive for the virus last month.
It was never confirmed if Hailey caught COVID from her 28-year-old husband, although at the time of her hospitalization, TMZ reported that the symptoms from her “medical emergency” were “typical for much older people”.
We’re glad that Hailey is back home following her understandably terrifying experience, and wish her a speedy recovery!
