Jimmy Rees, aka Jimmy Giggles, has withdrawn from ‘Dancing With The Stars’ to spend time with his family after his son’s recent health scare.
“Jimmy Rees has made the difficult decision to leave Dancing With The Stars. His seven-week-old son, Mack, recently suffered complications during a routine procedure and is in hospital in a stable condition,” A Network 10 spokesperson said.
“Understandably, Jimmy has left the competition to be by his son, and wife Tori’s side, during this difficult time.”
The Giggle & Hoot host Rees and his wife Tori welcomed twin boys Mack and Vinny into the world in early February.
The couple also has a three-year-old son, Lenny.
Little Mack recently suffered some complications after a routine procedure for a tongue tie.
On Friday Tori shared an Instagram post asking people for the prayers for little Mack,
“Please send my beautiful Mack loads of strength and love.
“I took him today to get a simple tongue tie fixed and the man cut a main blood vessel.
Little Mack was rushed via ambulance to a hospital.
Tori shared that her 8 week old baby boy needed CPR, a blood transfusion and was put on a ventilator.
She added, “Please give him so much strength for us. We are speechless.”
