Briana Renee hasn’t had the best pregnancy so far. The “Little Women: LA” star found out her husband, Matt Ericson, was cheating on her, and now reports claim that she was rushed to the hospital because she went into labor months ahead of her due date.
According to TMZ, Matt had to take Briana, who’s only six months along, to a hospital in Murrieta, California, Monday night after she started experiencing stomach pains. Briana was told her discomfort was actually contractions.
The reality star is being monitored by doctors and was placed on bed rest. She also has to take medication to slow down her contractions because it’s too early for her to give birth. Sources told TMZ that Briana and her “Little Women: LA” cast mates are currently filming for Season 5 of the Lifetime show but cameras were not allowed inside the hospital during her scary incident.
Briana and Matt announced they were expecting their first baby together in March. They each have a child from previous relationships. Earlier this month, Briana shared a photo of her bare baby bump, writing in the caption: “I am not yet able to hold you, but you already hold my heart #babyBriatt #comingsoon #boyorgirl?”
On the “Little Women: LA” finale, which aired on April 20, Briana’s friends told her they were concerned about her relationship with Matt. It was revealed that Matt had cheated on Briana after she found out she was pregnant. During the episode, Briana told her friends she couldn’t make a decision about whether she wanted to divorce her husband or work things out.
In a sneak peek of the couple’s upcoming Lifetime special, titled “Little Women LA: Matt & Briana,” he tearfully tells her how sorry he is for being unfaithful. “Seeing Matt cry is never an easy thing,” Briana tells the camera. “I understand he’s hurting. I understand he’s sorry. I understand all that, but I don’t care.”
Part one of the “Little Women: LA” finale airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Lifetime, and “Little Women LA” Matt & Briana” airs May 11.
