Shanna Moakler is sending Travis Barker good vibes.

On Thursday, the Celebrity Big Brother alum, 47, spoke out about her ex-husband's hospital stay as he fights pancreatitis.

"Thank you to everyone who has reached out with concern to my ex and father of my children, I know he is in great hands and surrounded by loving support and the best medical teams available and his beautiful wife Kourtney [Kardashian]," said Moakler in a statement to Us Weekly.

The exes share son Landon, 18, and daughter Alabama, 16. The Blink-182 drummer, 46, is also a father figure to Moakler's daughter Atiana De La Hoya, 23, whose biological father is professional boxer Oscar De La Hoya.

Continued Moakler: "I pray for a speedy recovery and for the comfort of my children as I know they are very concerned and worried."

She ended her statement by saying the famous drummer "has beat the odds numerous times and I know with his support system he will do it again. I will always be there for him and my children."

On Tuesday, Barker was seen getting wheeled into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on a stretcher. A source later confirmed to PEOPLE that he is suffering from pancreatitis, an inflammation of the organ that aids in digestion and regulating blood sugar.

Kardashian, 43, who legally tied the knot with Barker on May 15, "won't leave his side" while he's in the hospital, another source told PEOPLE Wednesday.
