Monica - Monica's Father Hospitalised For Kidney Failure

R&B star Monica is praying her father recovers from a bout of ill health after he was hospitalised on the same day she gave birth to her baby girl.

The Boy Is Mine hitmaker became a mother for the third time last week (03Sep13) when she and her husband, basketball player Shannon Brown, welcomed little Laiyah, but her joy was tinged with sadness after learning her dad had ended up in hospital, too.

The new mum shared a photo of her father, Billy Arnold, Jr., cradling his newborn granddaughter in a post on Instagram.com on Thursday (12Sep13), and explained, "The same day our daughter was born my father was admitted. Dr's (doctors) say Kidney failure. I just stay in prayer because I know God never fails!!! I'm never phased (sic) by the world. The only thing that matters to me is Christ & My Family".

Monica also has two sons, Rodney and Romelo, with rapper Rocko, while Brown is father to Shannon Christopher, his child from a previous relationship.
