Kate Beckinsale, 50, Posts ‘Sick’ Photos From Hospital Bed, Worrying Fans
  • Kate Beckinsale, 50, sparked concern about her health online after posting a series of photos to Instagram.

  • The actress posted a few pictures from a hospital bed on social media, in an homage to her mom.

  • “Thank you,” she wrote in the caption of the photo, to those who “turn up when we are sick and sit with us.”

Kate Beckinsale’s fans are worried about her health—and we can understand why. The star regularly shows glimpses of her life on social media, but this time Beckinsale is sparking concern over a few cryptic photos shared to Instagram from a hospital bed.

Last week, Beckinsale posted a “UK Mother’s Day” and birthday tribute to her mother with a caption about “love” and “support.” Hidden in the batch of photos were two shots of the star sitting in a hospital bed. It appears Beckinsale was hooked up to IVs in one of the photos.

What’s more, is that the very first photo on the post is a screenshot of texts with Beckinsale’s mother in which she thanks her daughter for her “fabulous” presents. Beckinsale responded: “God I’m so relieved I was a little impaired.”

“Thank you to those that love us and support us when it’s sh*t and try to make sure there are some bits that aren’t. And for looking after our dogs when we can’t, and lead us to remember happy things when we can’t,” Beckinsale wrote in the caption of her post. “And turn up when we are sick and sit with us...And send balloons and check in and pull us out of wells with love.”

Fans showed concern in the comments while also wishing the star well. “Are you OK? Why are you in a hospital? Please get well soon😢” one fan wrote. “Such a sweet post for your Mama. I pray for your recovery, whatever it is you may be going through Kate. ❤️” another added. “Sending you lots of love, hugs, and prayers for a speedy recovery ❤️” another chimed in.

Two days after Beckinsale’s post, the actress posted yet another photo from the hospital on her Instagram story. In the photo, the star lies in her hospital bed snuggling with her cat Willow. She wrote, “visitor,” over the photo.

It’s unclear why Beckinsale has been hospitalized for the past few days, but fans speculated in the comments that it might be related to her Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, which she has previously opened up about in an Instagram post while responding to plastic surgery, botox, and fillers accusations.

“I don’t,” Beckinsale wrote, responding to one accusatory comment. “I actually can’t, I have a condition called Mast Cell Activation Syndrome which is actually a massive daily struggle and means I react to hundreds of things badly. Can’t take the risk.”

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) “causes a person to have repeated severe allergy symptoms affecting several body systems,” according to the Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD). “In MCAS, mast cells mistakenly release too many chemical agents, resulting in symptoms in the skin, gastrointestinal tract, heart, respiratory, and neurologic systems.”

Another fan speculated her hospitalization might be related to a ruptured ovarian cyst, which she previously documented on Instagram in 2019.

Whatever the cause is for Beckinsale’s hospital stay, we, along with her many supportive fans hope the star feels better soon. We’re wishing her a speedy recovery!
