‘NSYNC singer Joey Fatone and wife Kelly welcomed their second daughter Kloey Alexandra Fatone on Monday. Read more on their baby news below!
Baby Kloey Alexandra Fatone was born on Monday in Florida, weighing 5 lbs., 8 oz. She joins big sister Briahna, 8 ½.
“Kloey’s so small,” says Joey Fatone. “She looks like a little doll. But she’s healthy and doing just fine.”
Fatone’s wife had a difficult pregnancy, and found she was constantly exhausted. “We took her to the doctors, and they found blood clots in her lungs. It was life and death.”
After Kelly’s 12 day hospital stay, doctors diagnosed her with a rare genetic condition called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase.
MTHFR can threaten the life of the mother as well as increase the chances of a baby having chromosomal defects.
Kelly tried to take it easy during the pregnancy but began having a rapid heartbeat and fainting spells last week. Doctors decided to induce her two weeks early.
“The blood clots have broken up, Kelly’s doing fine and Kloey is awesome,” Joey Fatone revealed.
Fatone said the name Kloey comes from a combination of his and Kelly’s names. And the middle name Alexandra was chosen by the big sister Briahna.
“I’m thrilled,” Fatone says. “I’m just so happy that everyone’s healthy.”
