Tammin, who shares two young daughters with her husband, admitted it felt "weird" to discuss her husband's health struggle on Instagram. "But I feel like I have to because there are so many people who are struggling and going through this and you don't think it's going to be you and your family," the actress admitted.

"I've been so strong for the kids and for him for so many days, for over a week," she continued. "It's been a really scary time and I thought, don't say anything, but I can't have all of you on here and lie to you and pretend everything's ok when it's not."
