A ‘birthday miracle’ for Ana Navarro and her family

Navarro recently celebrated her father’s birthday with a sweet Instagram post. The political commentator shared a baby picture with her dad as well as more recent photos with both of her parents.

“Today is my daddy’s birthday. At almost 50, I adore him just as much as I did when I was a little girl (though we had a few rough patches in between. LOL),” she posted.

Navarro then transitioned her post to talk about the relationship her parents have as they’ve been married for 60 years.

“They really took the ‘for better or worse’ thing seriously. He’s been the love of her life,” she added. “It’s been so touching to see his dedication and love for her as she goes through this difficult last chapter.”

The ABC talk show co-host also gave fans an update on her mother’s health and shared a “birthday miracle.”

“We’ve been expecting my mom to pass for over a week. My family has shed enough tears to water the Sahara. She hadn’t eaten or drunk anything for a week and was pretty much comatose,” Navarro detailed. “Then, yesterday she opened her eyes and started eating a little and moving a little. I don’t understand and don’t want to get my hopes up. But my dad is elated and calling it his ‘birthday miracle.’ It’s all up to God.”

Navarro ended the post thanking all her followers that have been praying for her mom’s health since last week.
