Hailey Bieber has spoken out about her husband Justin Bieber’s condition only months after she suffered from a mini-stroke.
Appearing in Good Morning America to promote her new skincare line called Rhode, the 25-year-old model said that Justin, 28, is “doing really well” after suffering facial paralysis caused by Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
“He’s getting better every single day,” she expressed. “He’s feeling a lot better. And obviously it was just a very scary and random situation to happen, but he’s going to be totally okay. And I’m just grateful that he’s fine.”
Hailey also talked about how she’s feeling after she underwent surgery to close a hole in her heart. “I feel a lot better after that situation, I feel good. You know I had a procedure done to close this hole in my heart.”
She added: “I’m just giving my body the time to heal and recover. It was a little hard for me to recover from the procedure, just giving myself the time to be able to work out again and feel like normal if that makes sense, but I am doing well now.”
When the model was asked how they handled their health scares, the model said that going through it publicly “opened up a lot of really amazing and important conversations.”
“And I think that the silver lining of it honestly is that it brings us a lot closer, because you’re going through it together, you’re there for each other, you’re supporting each other, and there’s just something that really bonds you through, through these times,” Hailey said.
“That is, I think the silver lining of these crazy times.”
Justin recently shared a three-minute video on Instagram explaining his condition.
According to the Mayo Clinic, the facial paralysis and hearing loss associated with Ramsay Hunt syndrome is temporary but can become permanent.
The condition is caused by the same virus that causes shingles and chickenpox. Even after chickenpox clears up, the virus remains in the nerves and may reactivate years later.
Other symptoms of Ramsay Hunt syndrome include ear pain, painful red rash with blisters in, on, and around one year, difficulty closing one eye, dry eyes and mouth, and facial weakness.
