Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has been hospitalised after suffering "mild kidney failure".
The songstress - who has eight-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with her America's Got Talent presenter hubby of nearly four years - announced the news via Twitter, reports E Online.
The 41-year-old also penned a message on her website asking fans to pray for the family, and uploaded a picture of the couple in the hospital in Aspen.
"This is us in the hospital - role reversal; Last year it was me attached to the machines (after having dembabies) and Nick was there with me through it, and now here we are," she wrote.
"We're trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful. They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr C."
The Angels Cry singer went on: "We're doing OK but we're "straaaaaanded in Aspen". #DramaticDivaPlace (I know, we could be in a lot worse places) but the truth is as long as we're together, we're OK. I'm not trying to make light out of the situation because it's a serious moment that's very tough on all of us so please keep us and our family in your prayers."
