Country music star Jimmy Allen’s 5-week-old daughter rushed to hospital after stopping breathing


The singer said country music singer Jimmy Allen’s 5-week-old daughter was rushed to a Tennessee hospital Tuesday night “after she stopped breathing.”

Allen, who won the New Artist of the Year award at this month’s ACM Awards , Tweeted

The tweet continued: “Thank you to the zombie doctor at the TN Hospital who now sent our daughter home. “Thanks to the amazing EMT team that brought back Zara’s color, she can breathe again. It’s going to be a rough night.”

A day earlier, Allen’s wife, Alexis Allen, posted on social media, “Yesterday the ambulance was diverted from the hospital at 2am. Basically, if your baby’s lips are not blue, they will not have an answer for you. My last 24 hours.”

Allen and his wife got married in May and announced the arrival of daughter Zara in mid-October.

Allen’s wife had previously posted about Zara and the couple’s other daughter, Naomi, 20 months, struggling with undiagnosed diseases.

“Two sick babies,” the mother of the girls wrote in her Instagram story, including one on Zara’s chest. “A tired mum.”

Earlier this month, Allen became the second black artist to win the New Artist of the Year trophy.

During this month’s Country Music Association Awards, Allen and his band performed their latest single, “Freedom Was a Highway.”
