Emmy award-winning soap actor Jordi Vilasuso shared exciting news in his personal life. #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos has the scoop.
He and his wife Kaitlin are expecting their third baby… and it will be another girl for the Vilasuso family.
“Grateful for your prayers for our growing family, my friends ! Also, I know this was not easy to put out there my love, but your openness and call for prayer inspire me and I know will do the same for others! With faith and love,” Jordi posted on Instagram.
“Sweet friends! We come to you with big, exciting news and perhaps an even bigger prayer request,” Kaitlin said. “We are beyond excited to share that we are expecting a precious addition to our family in January! After two losses, this precious girl is an answer to our prayers and has already filled our hearts with so much hope and joy. But, while she is growing perfectly, we learned last week that my body is struggling to hold her and she’s at risk of coming far too early.”
“After many visits with some incredible doctors, we’ve made the decision to undergo a procedure called a cerclage in hopes that it will help keep her safe in my belly. There are risks to the procedure, but we are standing in faith that God did not bring us this far -with Riley and Everly feeling her move in my belly night after night- or bring her this far (20 weeks!) for her to not breathe the breath of life and have a long, beautiful one at that,” she said.
“While we didn’t expect to share the news like this, you all have covered our family in love and prayer many times before and we are humbly asking that you do it again. I’m scheduled for surgery Wednesday evening and we are praying she stays snug in my belly until then, that our doctors are not met with anything unexpected, and that their God-given skill leads to a successful surgery- specifically that my water does not break during the procedure and that the procedure itself doesn’t put me into labor. We are praying for many many more boring weeks of me mostly laying in bed while this baby girl grows stronger and more ready for this world,” she elaborated.
“I know that God knows the desires of our hearts. I know He is knitting her together in my womb, that she is already fearfully and wonderfully made, that He has a plan for her life. I ask that you’ll join us in praying that that plan is on this side of heaven. 🙏🏻 We will keep you posted. Thank you for your love always,” she added.
His wife, Kaitlin, revealed some positive news following her surgery. “We made it to surgery day!! What a blessing. About to go back.. Thankful for each and every prayer. Please keep them coming. We feel so covered in love,” she expressed on Instagram.
