Robertson’s post included a sweet picture of her lying in a hospital bed alongside her 4-month old daughter, Honey, who’s been fighting RSV, which is described by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a common respiratory virus that most people recover from in a week or two but can be serious for infants.

“The past few days have been very tough,” the TV star shared. “Watching your child sick is one of the most heart breaking [sic] things. Seeing her little struggle brings me to tears like I have never cried, but seeing her strength has given me smiles I have never smiled.”

“The love I have for this girl is unmatched,” she added. “She makes us laugh when we want to be crying, because of her wild and sweet fighter spirit. Seeing the nurses and doctors love her and laugh at her silliness in the midst of sickness has brought joy to a dark room. It’s not over yet, and that is sad, but we are believing for the days to come!”

Sadie and Christian made headlines in 2019 when they tied the knot at a private ceremony on her family farm in Louisiana. The two shared the exciting news they were expecting in October 2020. She gave birth to the couple’s first child in May.
