The Ribeiro family recently found themselves in the spotlight after a tragic accident that left their 4-year-old daughter, Ava, hurt.
The Dancing with the Stars presenter revealed that their young daughter’s recuperation process is anticipated to take several months. With Alfonso turning 52 this year, the family is going through a difficult time, but their main priority is still helping Ava get well. Reportedly, the young girl, who had fallen off her sit-down scooter the day before her fourth birthday, required emergency surgery on Friday, May 12 to avoid any potential scarring.
By posting images of his daughter’s wounds, which included severe burns and bruises all over her right elbow, shoulder, and eye, Alfonso expressed his pride in Ava’s bravery and thanked the medical staff at Kare MD Skin Health. In his Instagram post, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor stated, “Not the kind of day you want the day before turning 4.” I would like to express my sincere gratitude to [Kare MD Skin Health] for the emergency care and procedure that will hopefully reduce the risk of [scarring]. I’m so proud of my little girl for her bravery throughout the procedure.
