Though the two are known for their incessant feuding, the co-stars put their differences aside when it comes to the health of Briana’s nearly one-year-old son, Maverick Jax. In Touch exclusively obtained a sneak peek of tonight’s episode of Little Women: LA, during which the two ladies sit down at lunch while they talk about the health concerns plaguing the adorable baby boy.
“At this point, I’m terrified,” Bri explained to Terra, adding that her husband, Matt, “doesn’t even want to put him under,” let alone consider very invasive surgery.
“Yeah, but think about the alternative,” Terra tells the scared mom. “Let’s say you are needing a decompression surgery… then you would be looking at possibly paralyzing your child from the neck down if you don’t have the surgery.”
Unfortunately, this is a process that Terra knows all too well; fans witnessed firsthand the emotional heartbreak Terra experienced when her own daughter, Penny, had to have decompression surgery (which, thankfully, went smoothly).
“I know I said I was there for when you experiencing it, but I didn’t realize the extent of what you were going through,” Bri tearfully tells her friend.
In that moment, Terra decides to put their differences aside — and gets emotional while telling her friend about her daughter's health issues and what her experience was like when her firstborn had to get surgery before she even celebrated her first birthday.
Fortunately, we know that, today, little Mav is thriving when it comes to making progress with his health.
“He’s honestly amazing… He actually just turned over on his stomach and lifted his head and tried to crawl,” Briana gushed to __ of her boy’s progress last month. “I’m just like — my life just stopped. I just stared at him… For a little person, that’s phenomenal. That was a very proud moment!”
