Jill Duggar: Son’s Secret Medical Crisis Revealed!

Jill Duggar has been a reality TV star since childhood.

As such, she’s accustomed to sharing just about everything with her family’s massive fan base.

But there are some things that even Jill would prefer to keep private.

When Jill welcomed her second child back in July of 2017, she waited several weeks before posting a photo.

Now, fans believe they know why.

Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard, posted the above photo on his Instagram page this week as part of a montage celebrating his mother’s birthday.

Fans were shocked by the never-before-seen image of baby Samuel hooked up to wires with tubes coming out of his nose.

Some of Derick’s followers were deeply concerned by what they saw.

Others insisted that while they’re certainly unsettling, such scenes are not uncommon.

“That is a tube to suction fluid out of the lungs,” commented one fan.

“When babies are born by C-section the fluid does not get pushed out by contractions. It is normal to have to get this out, not a complication. Happened with both my C-section babies.”

Others continue to suspect that Samuel experienced serious health problems from birth and that the Duggars did their best to downplay the severity of the situation.

“Omg poor Samuel, feeding tube and oxygen. Don’t think he was as healthy at birth as you said originally,” one of Derick’s followers wrote.

At the time of Samuel’s birth, the Duggars did reveal that he was born via C-section following a difficult and complicated labor.

“After 40 hours of labor, he was delivered via C-section at the hospital,” the family revealed in a statement released just after the birth.

“Thank you for your continued prayers and support!”

“His birth didn’t go as expected,” Jill later stated in an interview with People magazine.

In all likelihood, fans will never know exactly how serious Samuel’s health problems were at the time of his birth.

Derick Dillard has been fired by TLC as a result of some controversial public statements, and it appears as though his family will be leaving the spotlight along with him.

So going forward, the only source of information about the Dillard family will be the Dillards themselves.

Kailyn Lowry to Sons: I’m Sorry About Your Dads!

In addition to starring on one of the most popular series in MTV history and hosting a successful podcast, Kailyn Lowry is also the author of a pair memoirs.

Each of Kailyn’s books made it to the bestsellers list, the latter becoming such a hit that it even inspired an adult coloring book.

(As in a coloring book for adults. There was nothing pornographic in it … we think.)

So it should come as no surprise that Kailyn has a third memoir in the works.

And since it was the candid nature of her first two tell-alls that made them so popular with Teen Mom 2 fans, it should also come as no surprise that Kailyn is once again baring her soul in her latest volume.

Not surprisingly, the future is very much on the mother of three’s mind these days.

In particular, it seems she’s concerned about the challenges presented by raising three boys without an adult male presence in the household.

Kailyn welcomed son Lux in August of 2017, and it seems her co-parenting relationship with his father, Chris Lopez, is not going as planned.

Obviously, the situation is weighing heavily on Lowry’s mind, and she says she’s addressing her new book to all three of her boys, so that they might better understand the challenges she faces as a young single mom:

“The book was an apology letter to Lux for basically the mess he was born into and how bad I feel,” Lowry told Radar Online in a recent interview.

“But now it’s to all three of them.”

She further elaborated on the concept in a tweet posted earlier this week, writing:

“I feel bad and I’m nervous about how a lot of my decisions will impact them or affect them. So I’m apologizing to all of them and I want them to know how much I love them and I’m working now to pick up the pieces.”

Of course, Kail’s feelings of guilt are common to all parents and seem to afflict single parents in particular.

But while some aspects of her situation may be universal, others are unique.

Most parents struggle to make their children understand the difficulties of raising children under any circumstances, but Kail’s struggles are well-documented, both on television and in book form.

And as her boys grow up, that set of circumstances is likely to help them forge a bond with their mother that few sons know.

A release date for Kail’s third memoir has not yet been announced, but those familiar with the project say it’s in its final stages.

Kim Kardashian Addresses Son’s Serious Health Scare

Kim Kardashian did not necessarily ring in the new year with a glass of champagne and a kiss for Kanye West.

Instead, the reality star sadly welcomed 2018 with a dash of concern and a healthy helping of worry, following a pretty serious health scare for son Saint.

According to multiple sources (including Kim herself), the two-year old was hospitalized for multiple days around Christmas due to a case of pneumonia.

TMZ insider say the toddler was admitted on Thursday and released on Saturday, with Kim and Kanye taking turns spending those two nights with him.

The poor little guy is now resting comfortably at home.

The illness appears to have come out of nowhere, as Kim happily hung out with Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez on Wednesday evening and also shared a rare family photo with her followers.

How do we know all was well at the time this was snapped?

Kanye is almost smiling in the picture!

In response to the reports about her son and his status, and due to an outpouring of support and concern, Kardashian addresses the frightening situation on Instagram.

She wrote the following:

My precious baby boy is so strong! After spending three nights in the hospital & seeing my baby get multiple IV’s and hooked up to oxygen machines, our end of year was challenging. Pneumonia is so scary.

I just want to thanks every nurse & doctor out there who works so hard around the clock.

We are so grateful for you all! He’s home and all better. He’s so resilient I’m sure he will still say the ambulance ride was cool! My strong Saint.

Pneumonia really can be a serious infection.

It impacts the lungs and typically develops following another illness, such as a cold or the flu, the latter of which can also be dangerous for little kids.

Kim and Kanye are also parents to a four-year old named North.

They are expecting their third child via surrogate any week now.

Not a lot is known about the woman who will be giving birth, but multiple reports have stated it will be another girl.

So we’re glad Saint is now feeling better and we hope both he and the family get a chance to sit back and rest over the next few days.

Lord knows, once that newborn arrives, sleep will be at a premium!


Kailyn Lowry: I Won’t Be Seeing My Sons on Christmas!

If you think your holiday season is busy, imagine what the run-up to Christmas must be like for Kailyn Lowry.

Kailyn is a single mother of three, having just welcomed her third child in August.

Add those stresses to the constant demands of running a one-woman media empire, and you can see how Kailyn might be feeling the strain these days.

As each of her three sons has a different father, holidays and vacations are particularly challenging.

Kailyn recently began hosting a podcast entitled Coffee Convos, which is currently climbing the iTunes charts.

On the most recent episode, she revealed that her two oldest boys, Isaac and Lincoln, will be spending Christmas with their respective fathers.

“I had the kids for Thanksgiving so they’ll be with their dads for Christmas,” Lowry told her co-host, Lindsie Chrisley.

She added that she’s okay with the arrangement for a number of reasons.

For starters, she won’t be spending the holidays alone.

“I’ll have Lux,” she said, referring to her 4-month-old son.

“I always have Lux.”

Asked if she’s a holiday person, Kailyn said that depends on whether or not she’s with her boys.

And she and her exes reportedly reached their current arrangement with the idea that when Kail has one of her kids for the holidays, she’ll have all of her kids there to share in the celebration.

“When I have the kids I’m a holiday person, when I don’t have the kids I’m a me person,” she said.

“I’ll always have all my boys on the same holidays. I wanted it to be that way.”

It seems she’ll have Lux for every holiday, as the boy’s father, Chris Lopez, refuses to acknowledge paternity.

The downside is that Kailyn can’t collect child support for that reason.

But she may consider that a fair trade-off, as it’s not like she’s hurting for cash.

“He won’t acknowledge paternity so she can’t file for child support,” an insider close to the situation tells Radar Online.

“They gave a form in the hospital, but he didn’t sign it.”

Her relationship with Lopez may be damaged beyond repair, but otherwise, Kail seems to have done the nigh-impossible by establishing amicable co-parenting relationships with her other baby daddies.

And don’t worry about her holiday plans.

Kail has apparently arranged for a pre-Christmas celebration with her boys in Philadelphia.

The girl has a talent for making the most of her very little free time.
