ALFONSO Ribeiro has given a heartbreaking update on his daughter Ava after she had a scary scooter incident.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor, 51, revealed last week that the four-year-old had emergency surgery after falling off her scooter.
Alfonso revealed on Tuesday that Ava faces a “long” recovery after the incident.
Appearing on Live with Kelly and Mark on Tuesday, he said: “On Thursday, unfortunately, my daughter got injured and had to have emergency surgery.
“So it was a very stressful weekend. She fell and had basically road rash on her face and arm, and so they had to scalpel off all the skin.”
When Mark, 52, asked if Ava is going to be okay, Alfonso responded: “It’s going to be a long process.”
He also revealed that his wife Angela had a feeling that Ava was going to “get hurt”
The actor said: “The hard part of it is that my wife really listens to her intuitions.
“She actually on Thursday bought everyone into the kitchen and told everyone, ‘I have a feeling my daughter is going to the ER this week.
“‘Do not let her do anything that she can get hurt doing.’”
He added: “That obviously wasn’t listened to. And so my nanny was running back into the house to get pads and stuff and [Ava] went on a little sit-down scooter anyway.”
Kelly asked: “How long has your wife been a psychic?”
Alfson replied: “Unfortunately, most of her life. She very rarely gets things wrong and sees things coming.
“You don’t always listen to that feeling, and I think that all mothers have that beautiful intuition. That was very specific but all mothers have that intuition.
“You carry this soul around in your body for nine months; there is a connection that men can never understand that women have with their babies. And she felt something that unfortunately everyone didn’t abide by that information.”
The Dancing with the Stars host first revealed last Friday that Ava had emergency surgery after falling off her sit-down scooter.
“Not the kind of day you want the day before turning 4,” he wrote alongside a photo of Ava’s nasty scrapes on her face and arm.
Alfonso added: “Just want to give a heartfelt thank you to @kareskinmd for the emergency service and procedure to help lessen the likelihood of scaring.
“So proud of how brave my baby girl was during the surgery.”
The actor shares three kids with Angela – Ava, and sons Alfonso “AJ” Lincoln, nine, and Anders Reyn, eight.
The TV star – who hosted DTWS with Tyra Banks last year – is also a father to 20-year-old daughter Sienna from a previous relationship.
