A representative for Charlie Sheen confirms the actor's wife Brooke Mueller is fine following a hospitalization due to premature contractions.
Experiencing premature contractions, Brooke Mueller is said to be fine following hospitalization on Tuesday, February 17. In a statement issued to US Weekly, Stan Rosenfield, a representative for Brooke's husband Charlie Sheen confirmed Brooke "is expected to be released from the hospital" later that day.
Giving more details of Brooke's hospitalization, Stan explained, "Brooke Mueller Sheen was taken to a Los Angeles area hospital Tuesday morning after experiencing premature contractions." Furthermore, Stan added, the condition "is not uncommon at this stage of a pregnancy carrying twins."
Prenatal scare, in fact, isn't something new for Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller. Back in September 2008, Brooke underwent emergency gall-bladder surgery, described as a routine procedure but one that carries extra risk for both mom and baby during the first trimester of pregnancy. She was treated at the hospital for five days before then being discharged.
Broke is expected to give birth to the twins she is carrying in April. The twins will be her first children and the fourth ones for Charlie who has two daughters, Sam and Lola, from his failed marriage to Denise Richards, and another daughter, named Cassandra, with former girlfriend Paula Profit.
