Bob Harper is working on recovering after suffering a heart attack earlier this month, E! News has learned.

NBC News gave us the following statement about the Biggest Loser host: “Bob Harper confirms to NBC News that he had a heart attack two weeks ago yesterday. He is on the mend.”

According to TMZ, the fitness guru was working out at a gym in New York City when he collapsed. A doctor happened to be at the gym and was able to administer CPR, using paddles to keep Harper alive. 

Harper said he woke up two days later in the hospital and remained there for an additional six days. Though he’s based in Los Angeles, TMZ reports he is still staying in NYC as his doctors have not cleared him to fly just yet.

Of course, with all of this, we can’t help but wonder how someone as healthy as Harper could be at risk for a heart attack.

The host tells TMZ it’s all genetics. In fact, his mother passed away from an heart attack. 

Our thoughts are with Harper as he continues to recover.

Pregnant Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Shines Next to Jason Statham at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rosie Hunington-Whiteley and her fiancé Jason Stathammade their first red carpet appearance since announcing they were expecting a baby earlier this month on Instagram. The couple attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night, and walked the red carpet before enjoying the party. 

Rosie shined bright on the carpet in a custom Atelier Versace silver sheath dress, which she topped off with flawless Nirav Modi chandelier earrings. The model accentuated her most flattering accessory, her bump, by keeping a simple beauty look with her hair pulled back in a chignon bun and soft makeup.

Rosie and Jason have been dating for over six years. Last year, at the 2016 Golden Globes, Rosie flashed a diamond ring on the red carpet announcing their engagement. In February, Rosie posted a photo taken by soon to be dad, Jason, on Instagram announcing her pregnancy “Very happy to share that Jason and I are expecting!! Lots of love Rosie x.” 

The couple have not announced if they are expecting a girl or boy. 

The annual Vanity Fair Oscar Party was the most star-studded event of the night. Inside, Oscar winners Emma Stone, Mahershala Ali and Viola Davis gathered alongside Katy Perry, Ciara and Jessica Alba and more to celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night.
