ATLANTA – Nancy Grace, who gave birth to twins earlier this month, has been hospitalized with blood clots in her lungs, a complication of her recent pregnancy.
The 48-year-old Headline News talk anchor sought treatment Sunday after she experienced discomfort and began having trouble breathing while on her way to church, said CNN spokeswoman Janine Iamunno.
"She was brought to the emergency room in Atlanta," Iamunno said in a statement Tuesday. "Her doctors found two blood clots in her lungs, which occurred as a result of the pregnancy. She is currently recovering and is expected to be released by the end of the week."
Iamunno declined to identify the hospital for security reasons.
Grace gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl, after doctors induced labor two months before her due date. The babies were born Nov. 4. John David weighed 5 pounds, 1 ounce and Lucy Elizabeth weighed 2 pounds, 15 ounces.
She had developed a pulmonary edema — fluid in the lungs — and doctors told her it would be better for her health, and that of the children, if they induced labor early, the network said.
Iamunno said previously that Grace, a former prosecutor with the Fulton County District Attorney's office, plans to return to hosting her legal analysis program as soon as possible.
Her husband, David Linch, is an Atlanta investment banker.
