Fans watched with fear as Big Brother contestant Kimberly Kisselovich was removed form the the house and rushed to hospital two weeks ago.
Now, it has been revealed that Kimberly’s medical issues were caused by an ectopic pregnancy.
An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilised egg develops outside the womb.
Ectopic pregnancies are life threatening for the mother and baby.
Kimberly has since said she became pregnant during her time in the Big Brother house, having slept with contestant, Steven Goode. The model has been warned by doctors that she will likely need surgery to remove the egg from her fallopian tube.
Kimberly is devastated by the diagnosis, and has been told there is a possibility she will not be able to have children in future: “I’m really concerned. Steven’s speaking to all the doctors – he’s really upset … The doctor has said that there’s a chance I won’t be able to have children. I’m trying to keep positive because we don’t know for certain.”
Poor Kimberly, this is such a difficult thing to go through, we hope she feels better soon.
