How is Ana Navarro’s mother doing?

Navarro opened her heart on The View regarding her mother. During the episode that aired on Oct. 1, the panel was talking about having regrets in life and Navarro said she had a major one. The Nicaraguan-born co-host said that she regretted not spending more time with her mother when she was healthy.

“I’ve told you all — my mom has been incredibly sick and she had her last rites given a few days ago,” Navarro shared on the show. “And I really regret not having spent more time with her when she was healthy. Today, she got out of ICU which is almost a miracle. I don’t know how long she’s gonna last but I’m to call her every day.”

At the time, it was almost a miracle that Navarro’s mom was able to get out of the hospital considering they had given her, her last rites. However, Navarro just updated fans and it looks like she’s not getting better.

“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 posted 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.”

Why can’t Ana Navarro visit her mom?

The View fans know that Navarro is very passionate about politics and is not afraid to speak her mind. Just like she talks about politics in the U.S., she has called out policies from the current administration in the country of Nicaragua.

In a reply to a Showbiz Cheat Sheet article, Navarro explained why she couldn’t travel to Nicaragua saying that “Daniel Ortega has cracked down on members of the free press and his political opponents and critics.”

“I am both things. Many have been indiscriminately jailed or disappeared. Many more have fled into exile,” she added.

Navarro said she was communicating with her mother via FaceTime as it was her desire not to have her daughter travel to the Central American country for fear of retaliation from the government.

The View airs weekday mornings at 11 a.m. ET and 10 a.m. CT/PT on ABC.
