Kourtney Kardashian has revealed she was rushed to hospital for surgery to 'save her baby's life'.
Her post comes late on in her pregnancy, with the reality star expecting her fourth child - marking her first with husband Travis Barker.
She wrote: "I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life.
"I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock.
"And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this. As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery.
"I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.
"Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing."
The update comes just a few days after her husband Travis Barker rushed to besides the reality star while on tour.
At the time, their statement didn't reveal many details about the emergency but they promised fans that they would reschedule shows in Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin.
The rock group also said that they would give an update 'as soon as possible' after the announcement.
Barker also shared several cryptic Instagram posts, as he returned to the US as fans speculated about what could have happened.
One photo, posted on the musician's stories, showed a banner which read: "Together we pray."
A later image also showed a stained glass window, implying that Barker had been in a church.
As fan speculation reached fever pitch though, Kardashian stayed off social media.
Thankfully, it seems that the influencer and TV personality is on her way to recovery following her hospital visit.
She and Barker are expecting their first child, a baby boy, after tying the knot last year.
Touchingly, the couple have been documenting their fertility journey and also shared their excitement about the new addition in a hilarious video which referenced a Blink 182 video.
We wish the family all the best as Kourtney recovers!
