It’s been rough for My Five Wives star Karlie Jessop since giving birth prematurely.

Jessop – Brady Williams’s oldest daughter with his first wife Paulie – delivered Jacob “Huck” Jessop on Oct. 29 at just 25 weeks along. Baby Huck was born weighing only 2 lbs., 1 oz.

Jessop felt a worsening pain in her lower back and decided to go to the hospital. Doctors informed her she was dilated and would have the baby that night.

“He has a strong heart and an even stronger will to live,” Brady and the My Five Wives family wrote on Facebook. “We are confident that with continued love, many prayers, and attentive hands, our baby Huck will have an amazing homecoming sometime in late February. Please pray for baby Huck.”

The family continues to update their fans on their Facebook page.

Tune in to this week’s episode on Sunday, Dec. 21 at 10 p.m. to hear the family’s emotional story.
