Danielle Fishel’s last week has been filled with sadness and joy, as the “Boy Meets World” star gave birth to her first child, only to find out there were some major medical hurdles to overcome.
The TV star, who also appeared on the now-scrapped, “Girl Meets World,” announced on social media Monday morning that she and her husband, Jensen Karp, welcomed their first child.
“One week ago today, on 6/24 at 4:52am, Adler Lawrence Karp made his entrance into the world, 4 weeks early,” Fishel explained.
The star wrote that she was only one week away from maternity leave, and ended up in the hospital after her water broke on June 20.
She continued, “Unfortunately, after doing an ultrasound, our amazing OB discovered fluid in his lungs that was not there during our last appointment only 10 days earlier – and thus we entered a nightmare we’ll never forget.”
Fishel said Adler is still not home with his parents, as doctors continue to investigate the fluid in his lungs and, “determine the best way to get it out.”
She said the trying time has strengthened the relationship with her husband, and that, “Jensen and I have also become closer than we ever thought possible and the love between us has grown exponentially as we have leaned on each other during both our highest highs and our lowest lows.”
Fishel admits, “We feel helpless and powerless and useless and we wanted so badly to follow our ‘birth plan,’ unsurprisingly none of which involved leaving our beautiful baby boy at the hospital for the first weeks of his life.”
Still, the new mom has found some things to gush about her little bundle of joy, and wrote, he hates having a poopy diaper for even 1 minute, he loves bath time, he has the cutest sneezes I’ve ever heard.”
Fishel also thanked family and friends for all the support her family has received, and is hoping to bring baby Adler home soon.
She also made sure to let the haters know the cute little fox will be “removed from his crib.”
