Actor Alfonso Ribeiro, best known as the host of Dancing with the Stars, recently shared an update on his daughter Ava Sue’s recovery following a scooter accident. Ava, who turned four just a day before the incident, has shown incredible resilience and has been a true source of relief for her father.

Taking to Instagram, Alfonso expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the medical professionals at @kareskinmd for their swift and skillful care. Thanks to their expertise, the chances of scarring have been greatly reduced. Alfonso also couldn’t help but commend his young daughter for her bravery throughout the entire surgical procedure.

In a recent update, Alfonso shared his optimism about Ava’s progress. Despite the challenging and frightening moments they’ve faced, she is doing exceptionally well. Alfonso even mentioned his excitement about Ava joining the Fourth of July celebrations in Washington, D.C., highlighting her remarkable recovery.

Reflecting on the accident in May, Alfonso mentioned that he wasn’t present when it happened. Fortunately, their nanny was there to provide immediate assistance, and Alfonso was promptly informed, leading to swift medical attention. Alfonso and his wife Angela Unkrich, whom he married in 2012, are overjoyed to be Ava’s parents. They also have two other wonderful children together, nine-year-old Alfonso “AJ” Lincoln and eight-year-old Anders Reyn. Additionally, Alfonso has a twenty-year-old daughter named Sienna from his previous marriage to Robin Stapler.

As a proud father of four, Alfonso couldn’t help but praise Ava’s strength and resilience. He knows that the recovery process may take some time, but Ava remains active and moving around. Though the wound has technically healed, it will take time for the noticeable scar to fade. Alfonso acknowledges that, while the scar may not have significant medical implications, it carries immense emotional weight for a parent deeply concerned about their child’s well-being.

Angela, Ava’s loving mother, also took to Instagram to express her concern and love for their precious little one during the incident. She revealed that she had a premonition or motherly intuition in the morning, foretelling Ava’s visit to the emergency room. Angela emphasized how safety and caution were a top priority for everyone involved in preparing for Ava’s birthday celebrations.

As Ava Sue continues her journey toward a full recovery, Alfonso Ribeiro and Angela Unkrich are filled with immense gratitude for the support they’ve received and for the progress their brave daughter has made. Their unwavering love and dedication are a testament to the strength of their family bond, which remains unbreakable even in the face of challenging times.
