Ana Navarro is a fan-favorite on The View because she never holds back when fighting for what’s right in politics. However, behind her wittiness and smile, the political commentator had been hiding pain as her mother was ill in the hospital. Fans of the popular co-host urged her to go to Nicaragua to see her mother after she was discharged from the hospital in a miraculous event. Due to the political climate, the ABC daytime star can’t go to Nicaragua but she has a health update for all the fans wondering how her mother is doing.

Ana Navarro’s mother is ‘a little better’

When Navarro opened up on The View about having regrets for not having spent more time with her mother when she was healthy, fans suggested she visit her in Nicaragua. However, due to the current regime in the Central American country, Navarro fears being incarcerated for opposing the government in power. In conversation with both of her parents, Navarro decided not to visit her mother but has been contacting her on FaceTime every day.

The CNN contributor updated her fans on Instagram about how her mother is doing after leaving the hospital and settling back home.

“My mom is now at home. Some days, she’s a little better. Some days, she’s a little worse,” Navarro shared. “If she gets better, they want to come to Miami to visit her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and meet the new great-granddaughter who is scheduled to be born next month. She will be named, “Violet”, for my mom. She’s beaten the odds before. God, I so badly hope she makes it.”
