Fitness expert Michelle Lewin took to Instagram on Friday morning to share an emotional plea. Fans of the Venezuelan model are accustomed to seeing her share workouts and flaunt her insanely fit physique. This time, however, she shared that her husband, Jimmy Lewin, was in the midst of a major medical crisis.

The new post contained a photo that featured Michelle snuggling up to Jimmy, as well as a lengthy caption. The note was written first in Spanish, with an English translation added right after it. The Venezuelan noted that she rarely used her social media pages for bad news. However, she felt that this current crisis was worthy of an exception.

As supporters read what she disclosed, they could see why she felt it was necessary to open up about this. They immediately flooded her page with support in response.

Michelle explained that she needed some prayers for the “love of her life.” She noted that her followers were like family to her and she thanked them for all the support they had given her over the years. Now, she acknowledged that she needed all of that more than ever before.

She went on to detail that she would be away from social media for a bit going forward, but she felt obligated to let her everybody know some of what was going on behind the scenes in her life. Michelle revealed that Jimmy was currently in critical condition and experiencing acute liver failure.
