Charlie Sheen and his wife, non-celeb Brooke, recently welcomed twin boys into the world (on March 14th).
Unfortunately, the reputable and reliable Entertainment Tonight is reporting that one of their newborn sons, Max, is currently in the hospital and has been diagnosed with a heart condition.
Our thoughts go out to Charlie and his family.
Update: Wow. Entertainment Tonight got it wrong!
Sheen's rep just issued a statement denying that little Max has a heart condition. As to why he's in the hospital, Charlie's publicist explains, "Charlie and Brooke's infant son remains in the hospital, not because of a heart condition as reported, but because he has not gained the weight necessary to leave hospital. Max is expected to reach the weight requirement shortly and will join his brother [Bob] at home. The Sheens appreciate the outpouring of concern but have assured everyone that both Bob and Max are fine.
Through his rep, Charlie himself says, "The weight issue is very common among infants who were born before reaching full term. I know a lot of people are not fond of hospital food' I just didn't realize they that started so young."
