The latest on Ana Navarro’s mom

Navarro shared an adorable photo of her mother on Instagram while holding the cutest puppy. The ABC talk show host revealed that her mom had been struggling with her health and was even read her last rites while in the hospital. Despite doctors discharging her, she has not gotten better. Now, Navarro reconnected with her followers asking for prayers during this difficult time.

“Friends, my mom is a woman of enormous faith. She’s been particularly devoted to St. Jude her whole life,” Navarro posted. “If you are the praying kind and can spare a prayer, please lift her in prayer, that she rests and finds peace. My family is going through a sad and very difficult time.”

The post came after one of Navarro reminiscing about the last Christmas she got to spend with her mother in person.

“As my mom’s health continues to rapidly decline, this photo memory of the last Christmas we all spent together, popped up on my iPad,” Navarro wrote on Instagram. “I had forgotten about this. I’m taking it as a sign from above to remember her happy and surrounded by the family she’s given all her unconditional love to.”

Ana Navarro regrets not spending more time with her mom

On the Oct. 1 episode of The View, Navarro opened up to the viewers about her mom’s health. The panel was discussing regrets in life, which Navarro said she had one big one regarding her mother.

“I’ve told you all — my mom has been incredibly sick and she had her last rites given a few days ago,” Navarro said. “And I really regret not having spent more time with her when she was healthy.

Although Navarro’s fans urged her to go to Nicaragua to see her mother, it wasn’t possible because of the government.

“I have not traveled to see my mom at my parents’ request, because of COVID concerns and the volatile political situation there,” Navarro said on Instagram reacting to a Showbiz Cheat Sheet article. “Nicaraguan strongman, Daniel Ortega, has cracked down on members of the free press and on his political opponents and critics. I am both things. Many have been indiscriminately jailed or disappeared. Many more have fled into exile.”

Navarro said that she agreed with her mother that it wasn’t time to go to Nicaragua but said she had been in contact with her through FaceTime.
