Not uncommon in preemie babies, but scary nonetheless. Unconfirmed rumor which has now been deleted from source site.
LATEST: One of JULIA ROBERTS’ twins has been rushed into an incubator after suffering respiratory problems, contradicting recent reports the actress and her husband DANNY MODER have taken their babies home.
HAZEL PATRICIA weighed 1.9 kilograms (four pounds, five ounces) when she was born five weeks prematurely on 28 November (04), along with her brother PHINNAEUS WALTER.
Doctors have been regularly checking their lung development, and, according to British newspaper the DAILY MAIL, Hazel has been transferred to the intensive care unit of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with respiratory malfunctions and jaundice.
Roberts has since cancelled all promotional duties attached to her new films CLOSER and OCEAN’S ELEVEN to be permanently close to Hazel’s bedside.
A close friend says, "This is every mother’s nightmare – to have a new baby struggle to survive after being born prematurely. Hazel has had respiratory problems since birth and was placed in an incubator while her lungs fully develop.
"Doctors have tried to reassure Julia that the chances are good that Hazel will be fine and there will be no longterm complications."
Thanks to April and Nessa for this article-hope that this is the true one!
Roberts Takes Her Babies Home
Julia Roberts and her baby twins have left hospital after an eight day stay while doctors tested the tots’ lung development. Roberts’ daughter Hazel, who, with brother Phinnaeus, was born six weeks early last month, was placed in an incubator shortly after her birth as medics kept a round-the-clock vigil on her. Doctors told the worried Pretty Woman star that Hazel was making good progress and that there should be no further "complications". An insider says, "Doctors tried to reassure Julia that the chances are good Hazel will be fine and there should be no long-term complications."
