Hailey Bieber attends the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Radhika Jones at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on March 12, 2023 in Beverly Hills, California.

Hailey Bieber is sharing her gratitude a year after undergoing a scary heart procedure. The model took to her Instagram Story earlier this week to mark one year since having a hole in her heart sealed. “This time last year I had a procedure to close a hole I had in my heart known as a PFO (Patent Foramen Ovale) Following having a transient stroke. So grateful to have found this and have it closed, and so grateful for my amazing doctors. A year later I’m feeling strong and healthy.” Hailey added a link for her million followers to find more about PFO and PFO closure.

Last March, Hailey, 26, shocked fans with news that she had suffered stroke-like symptoms and had been hospitalized. She later confirmed that the doctors discovered a blood clot to her brain that was categorized as a Transient Ischemic Attack. Following more testing, doctors later determined the blood clot traveled from her heart to her brain through a patent foramen ovale, a flaplike hole in Hailey’s heart that did not close the way it should have after birth. She underwent a PFO closure to correct it.

“It went very smoothly. I’m recovering really well, really fast. I feel great,” she told fans in a YouTube video at the time. “This biggest thing I feel, honestly, I just feel really relieved that we were able to figure everything out, that we were able to get it closed, that I will be able to just move on from this really scary situation and just live my life.”
