Southern Charm’s Jennifer Snowden, 35 gave birth to her baby boy James Ascher yesterday morning via C-section at 7.15am.. According to the Daily Mail ‘the baby was immediately placed in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit and will have to undergo surgery within a few days.’
Jennifer was prepared for the difficulty given that she knew her son had a rare birth defect that affects the brain but was hoping and praying for a different outcome.
On Sunday night she posted on Instagram that the encephalocele on Ascher’s brain ‘has continued to be miraculously healed in the womb, which was evidenced by his 2nd fetal MRI on 7/28′.
‘We’ve been on a crazy emotional trajectory with this little guy but are so blessed by the news from 7/28 & hopeful that his prognosis remains the same or, God willing, even better once he’s born & the doctors can evaluate him more.’
Southern Charm star, Kathryn Dennis, has been at the hospital supporting Jennifer and her boyfriend Lee.
Jennifer and her boyfriend, Lee, have known each other for 10 years. On Southern Charm Jennifer denied claims that she slept with Thomas Ravenel. Thomas has since become an ally of Snowden after learning about her difficult pregnancy.
