Actor Joey Lawrence’s wife, Chandie Yawn-Nelson, who is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child – to be named Liberty Grace – has been diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, reports Starpulse.com.
Just weeks before her April 3rd due date, Chandie has been diagnosed with Rh disease, which could translate to Hemolytic disease for her newborn. In the most severe cases, this condition can cause heart failure in the unborn child, resulting in stillbirth.
Joey, 33, opened up to Life & Style about the difficult news:
There are so many unknowns about it because it is so rare. All you can do is pray hard and be positive.
The former Blossom star and his wife have been married since 2005 and are also parents to daughter Charli, 3.
