British soccer star David Beckham and his wife, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, rushed their 3-year-old son Romeo to a hospital in Spain after he suffered convulsions for the second time in a week.

The boy and his parents left the hospital on Wednesday, but there’s no word yet on what was ailing Romeo. He was first rushed to Madrid’s La Paz hospital on Oct. 1.

“Romeo is okay now, it’s a big relief but still a worry,” a family friend tells PEOPLE. “This is too sensitive a subject for them to talk about right now.”

Sources say the 30-year-old soccer captain stayed overnight with his son and his 31-year-old wife while Romeo underwent tests. The family was expected to return to England where Beckham is scheduled to play in a World Cup qualifying match on Saturday.

“Like every parent, the well-being of their children is paramount,” says a friend. “Victoria and David will do anything to ensure their kids’ health is looked after.”

The couple also have two other children Brooklyn, 6, and Cruz, 7 months.
