We're so happy to hear this!
Blake Lively need not worry about her father Ernie Lively because the former actor is doing great!
Which was NOT a given after he became the first patient to undergo a heart procedure where his own stem cells were injected into his body. Doctors hoped the procedure would repair some dysfunctional parts in his heart.
The father had suffered a massive heart attack back in 2003, and has been toiled in bad health problems ever since, but apparently the controversial procedure worked like a charm!
Here's what he said one day after the procedure:
"I woke up the other morning and told my wife, 'I haven't felt this good in years.'"
The former actor has had such trouble with his heart these past few years that even walking up the stairs was a health scare, so he decided to have his stem cells injected to repair any ill functioning arteries and muscle. We guess it worked!
It is estimated that MILLIONS of people have severe heart problems, so this operation - which is relatively new - may save even more people!
As for Blake's poppa, he says he's looking forward to becoming a grandfather of Blake and Ryan Reynolds's kiddies.
Here's what he recently said:
"She is newly married and wants a big family. She says she wants 30 kids. I said, 'Why don't you start with one?'"
Excellent advice from the old man with the good heart!
Congratulations on your successful operation - here's to your health!!!!
