Hailey Bieber has had a difficult year in terms of health, and in a new post, she revealed she is currently going through another hiccup.
On her Instagram Story yesterday, the model shared a photo of herself in gray sweats, lifting up her matching sweatshirt in front of a mirror to reveal a small belly bump.
“Not a baby,” she wrote next to her stomach, before anyone could jump to conclusions.
“I have a cyst on my ovary the size of an apple,” she explained. “I don’t have endometriosis or PCOS but I have gotten an ovarian cyst a few times and it’s never fun.”
She added that the condition is “painful and achey,” and it makes her feel “nauseous and bloated and crampy and emotional.”
She told fans, “I’m sure a lot of you can overly relate and understand. We got this ✌????✌????✌????.”
In March, Bieber was hospitalized after experiencing stroke-like symptoms related to a blood clot in her brain. Though she was discharged the next day, she sought another opinion from doctors at UCLA after the scare, and they found she had a patent foramen ovale (PFO), a small flap-like opening that forms when a hole in the heart doesn’t close after birth. They concluded that Bieber’s blood clot, instead of being absorbed in her lungs, had traveled to her heart and escaped through the PFO to her brain.
Just three months after Bieber’s surgery, her husband, Justin Bieber, was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a condition that occurs when a varicella-zoster virus infects a nerve in the head. Among other things, it caused half of the “Peaches” singer’s face to be completely paralyzed. He recovered after several weeks.
