If you follow Nick Cannon on social media, you may want to send him some encouraging messages. Cannon is spending the holidays in a California hospital after a lupus flareup.
“For all who have been trying to contact me the last few days this is where I’ve been,” he wrote to his fans. “And I will be in the Hospital through Christmas.”
“All good though, Doctors say I will be back to normal before the New Year. #LupusSucks #ncredible #warrior,” he continued.
The father-of-two — he’s expecting a third baby with former Miss Arizona U.S.A. Brittany Bell — opened up about his health problems in 2012, after he was hospitalized for kidney failure and, later, hospitalized again with blood clots in his lungs.
“It’s a lot of stuff,” Cannon said, “but it’s all in order now.”
When asked by PEOPLE if his condition was hereditary, he said, “They kind of say [my] autoimmune [disease] is – like a lupus type of thing, but no one else in my family has it.”
