Alfonso Ribeiro, known from „The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” shared a moving photo of his daughter one day before her fourth birthday.


The daughter of the „Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star, Ava Sue, was involved in a scooter accident that caused injuries requiring surgery.

The incident occurred just one day before the girl’s fourth birthday.

Ava Sue suffered the injuries after falling from her seated scooter.

Unfortunately, she sustained severe scars, extensive bruising, and severe burns on her right elbow, shoulder, and around her right eye.

Both Alfonso and his wife Angela Ribeiro shared updates on Ava Sue’s condition.

„No day that you wish for, on the eve of your fourth year.

I just want to express my heartfelt thanks to [Kare MD Skin Health] for the emergency care and procedure that helped reduce the likelihood of [scarring],” wrote Alfonso alongside photos of his daughter, thanking the medical staff for their swift response.

Angela, on the other hand, expressed the feeling that something bad could happen, citing maternal instincts.

„I explained to the family, the kids, the babysitter, and the friends who helped with the preparations for Ava’s birthday that we’re not doing anything crazy or risky today that could lead to a visit to the ER.

I literally made sure that everyone looked me straight in the eyes as I said those words,” she wrote.

When Ava Sue was brought to Kare MD Skin Health, Dr. Raffy decided she needed surgery to minimize the risk of potential scarring.

„It wasn’t a fun way to spend her last day as a three-year-old, but she was a real fighter,” wrote the mother. „Give this sweet girl some extra cuddles tonight.”

The team at Kare MD Skin Health took the time to wish their young patient a happy birthday via Instagram and thanked Alfonso for entrusting them with his daughter.

„Thank you very much for the very kind words [Alfonso].

It is a great honor for us to take care of your precious princess Ava.

We wish her a speedy recovery,” they wrote in the caption.

We wish dear Ava Sue a speedy recovery and a happy birthday.
