A rep for the couple has spoken out about the questions surrounding his stay, “Charlie and Brooke’s infant son Max remains in the hospital, not because of a heart condition as reported, but because he has not gained the weight necessary to leave the hospital. Max is expected to reach the weight requirement shortly and will join his brother at home. The Sheens appreciate the outpouring of concern, but have assured everyone that both Bob and Max are fine.”
Sheen himself has tried to make light of the media attention and false reports, saying, “The weight issue is very common among infants who were born before reaching full term, I know a lot of people are not fond of hospital food; I just didn’t realize that they started so young.”
The twins are the first children together for the couple, joining Sheen’s three daughters from previous relationships, Cassandra, 23, Sam, 4, and Lola 3.
