Garth Recovering From Broken Foot
Actress JENNIE GARTH is hobbling around her Los Angeles home after breaking her foot in a clumsy accident.
The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star's husband, Twilight actor Peter Facinelli, reveals Garth is resting up after recently tripping and falling awkwardly at their family property.
He tells People.com, "She had the baby in her arms and she was answering the door, and she misstepped. She tried to save the baby, so she twisted and snapped her foot."
But that's not the only ailment Garth is battling - she opened up about a health secret last week (27May09), revealing she was diagnosed with a "leaky" heart valve seven years ago.
And Facinelli insists his wife's heart is just "fine" - after hearing some exaggerated reports suggesting she was suffering from the more serious heart disease.
He says, "My wife has a leaky valve, which is pretty common. A lot of people have a leaky valve and they don't even know that they have it.
"I don't know how that (the misconstrued reports) happened. I was sitting at home with her, and I saw a ticker tape on the news that said, 'Jennie Garth has heart disease.' I said, 'Honey, you didn't tell me.' But no, she's fine. She's fine."
The couple, which married in 2001, has three children together, ranging in age from 11 to two years old.
