Hailey Bieber has opened up about the “scary” stroke she suffered in March, due to a blood clot, revealing that her face “drooped” and she “couldn’t talk”.
The 25 year old wife of pop star Justin Bieber, 28, posted a lengthy 12-minute video to Instagram about her ordeal, captioned “sharing my story” saying that she wanted to “tell the story in my own words”.
She explained that she was sat having breakfast with her husband Justin on March 10, having “normal conversation” on a “normal day”, when the incident happened.
She said: “All of a sudden, I felt this really weird sensation that kind of like travelled down my arm, from my shoulder all the way down to my fingertips, and it made my fingertips feel really numb and weird”.
After squeezing her fingertips together to try and work out what the sensation was, Justin asked her if she was okay.
Initially she didn’t respond because she “wasn’t sure”, which prompted him to ask her again if she was alright.
She said: “When I went to respond, I couldn’t speak,
“The right side of my face started drooping.
“I couldn’t get a sentence out. Everything was coming out like not even jumble, just like I couldn’t get any of the words out”.
She said that immediately she and Justin thought she was having a “full-blown” stroke before Justin asked a member of his team to call 911.
Hailey described it as the “scariest moment of my life” and worried that she was going to have “permanent issues” from it but, thankfully, she is now fine.
She went on to say that the “facial drooping lasted probably about 30 seconds, maybe more”, but that it “subsided really fast”.
As medics asked her questions such as did she know who she was and where she was, the model said she “knew all of the answers in my head, but as I would try to say it, I just could not get it out”.
Hailey revealed that the stroke was caused due to a blood clot that had escaped through a hole in her heart and travelled to her brain.
Doctors told her the cause of the clot was due to a combination of side effects from birth control pills, Covid-19, and a long haul flight.
Taking to Instagram in March to announce what had happened, Hailey told her 41million Instagram followers: “On Thursday morning, I was sitting at breakfast when I started having stroke-like symptoms and was taken to the hospital.
“They found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which caused a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours.”
