The babies had an extended stay in the hospital because they were born slightly early and had a condition called “jaundice” requiring them to spend time under photolight theraphy, according to sources close to the couple, TMZ reports.
Jaundice occurs because your baby’s body has more bilirubin than it can get rid of. Bilirubin is a yellow substance that’s made when the body breaks down old red blood cells. It leaves the body through urine and stool. When you’re pregnant, your body removes bilirubin from your baby through the placenta.
Phototherapy is the most common treatment for reducing high bilirubin levels that cause jaundice in anewborn. In the standard form of phototherapy, your baby lies in a bassinet or enclosed plastic crib (incubator) and is exposed to a type of fluorescent light that is absorbed by your baby’s skin.
