After Hesitating To Start a Family With Her Ex-Husband, ‘Married To Medicine’ Star Quad Webb Has Adopted a Daughter

The breakdown of Dr. Gregory Lunceford and Quad Webb’s marriage was difficult for Married to Medicine fans to watch. Webb was accused of dragging her feet in starting a family and Lunceford was considered to be immature and controlling. Despite refusing to give Lunceford the family he always desired, Webb maintained that she always wanted to be a mother. The talk show host recently revealed that she adopted a baby girl.

Five years ago I suddenly went from mother-to-be to mom of a child with a disability. There was no warning, no training. Now I’m six weeks into another role I didn’t sign up for — preschool teacher. Well, not just that: add in special education, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy. Managing Hannah’s school work and keeping her fed, safe, and semi-entertained is a full-time job, on top of my actual full-time job. As independent as Hannah is, she’s still not capable of doing everything herself. That means maintaining a certain level of supervision all day and being ready at any moment to help her. I can tell you a 5-year-old’s bladder certainly doesn’t care what’s a convenient time for me.

Every day is a seesaw (admittedly built by my own expectations). I bounce from totally ‘killin’ it’

Napier still went into work that day, however, “by 5 pm, I noticed I kept getting chills and checked my temperature and it was 100,” she writes. According to the Center for Disease Control, those infected can start showing symptoms within two to 14 days, which would match up if Napier had been exposed to the virus in NYC or since returning.

  • I recently learned firsthand the importance of donating blood when I had to have an emergency transfusion after the birth of my daughter.

Four weeks ago, the delivery of my daughter turned nightmarish when I started to bleed in the recovery room. I was just beginning to get my bearings following an unplanned cesarean section when I felt a gush of blood, and then another. In an unusual complication, my uterus failed to contract.

In minutes, I was surrounded by a

HGTV Star Erin Napier Says She and Her Daughter Helen May Have Had Coronavirus Without Knowing It

HGTV star Erin Napier is wondering if she and her family unknowingly caught the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) when they fell ill earlier this year.

In a lengthy Instagram post on Friday, the Home Town host, 34, opened up about falling ill after traveling to New York City, sharing that she, her 2-year-old daughter Helen and her 64-year-old mother all exhibited coronavirus symptoms last month but couldn’t figure out what they had.

“I’ve been hesitant to share this because I worried it might cause alarm, but the more I’ve considered it, I think it’s something worth discussing so we can hopefully raise the alarm for the importance of IMMEDIATE serological testing for COVID-19,” she began her post.

According to Napier, she began feeling sick in late January when she woke up with some gastrointestinal issues.

“I went in to work because I felt mostly normal. By 5 pm, I noticed I
