Via her Instagram Story, “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O'Donnell revealed that she was getting surgery. The star had her appendix removed before it ruptured.


Her husband also took to the social media platform sharing how “amazing” she was.

“CBS This Morning” co-host and anchor Norah O'Donnell, 45, posted a series of images that showed her in a hospital bed at Medical University of South Carolina. She captioned one of them, “Not what we planned for Spring Break.”


The television host also posted a video that showed her being wheeled into surgery. Another photo, showed the star as she was hooked up to a machine.


In a thumbs up picture, O’Donnell wrote: “Grateful for amazing nurses, surgeons and whole team.” Her husband, restaurateur Geoff Tracy, took to Instagram to share an update on his wife’s wellbeing with the same images.


He wrote:

“Love of my life got a bit of spring break surgery yesterday. Laparoscopic appendectomy... truly amazing. She is doing great and tougher than ever. Much thanks to medical team at MUSC. They were awesome. By the way she played two hours of tennis with an appendicitis. [sic] Stronger than steel.”


O’Donnell has been open and honest about her health scares. In 2016, she revealed that she was diagnosed with skin cancer around Thanksgiving.


Luckily, the co-anchor was successfully treated and she shared that her melanoma diagnosis had made her extra vigilant about spending time in the sun. Norah Morahan O’Donnell was born on January 23, 1974.


She is the former Chief White House Correspondent for "CBS News" in 2011 and 2012. Plus she was the substitute host for CBS's Sunday morning show “Face the Nation.”

The star currently lives with her husband in Washington, D.C. and New York City's Upper West Side neighborhood. They married in June 2001 and they are parents to twins, Grace and Henry and a daughter named Riley Norah Tracy.
