The Unforgettable star became a mother to twins, Jai Blue and Dev Eshann, in July (12), but the boys were struck down with respiratory condition croup last week (ends02Dec12).
Dev's condition worsened on Sunday and Vaidya took him to the emergency room to be checked over by doctors.
In a post on her Twitter.com page on Monday (03Dec12), she writes, "Twins r (are) so sick w (with) croup. Had to take Dev 2 (to) emergency room last night cuz (because) he had trouble breathing. He's ok now, but that was scary."
The Unforgettable star and her husband Don Wallace welcomed identical boys Jai Blue and Dav Eshann on 25 July (12), and the 39 year old reveals she struggled through childbirth because she couldn't take any medication to ease her pain.
She tells People.com, "My pregnancy was considered high risk, so most people don't even attempt a vaginal delivery. But because of my allergies to pain medication - especially Fentanyl, one of the main ingredients in an epidural - it was very important and safer for me to avoid any medication or surgery.
"Also, I didn't want to numb any of my senses; I wanted to experience every moment - including the pain.That's what was right for me."
Vaidya also admits she had a tough time breastfeeding the tots at first because she frequently had to nurse both sons at the same time.
She adds, "I tandem nurse the boys on a breastfeeding pillow for twins when I'm home and take turns when we're out. We've got it down now, but the first couple of weeks were tough!"
The Unforgettable star and her husband Don Wallace welcomed the identical tots last Wednesday (25Jul12) in New York.
The boys are called Jai Blue and Dev Eshaan Wallace, and they weighed in at five pounds, eight ounces and five pounds, three ounces, respectively.
The star tells People.com, "Don and I are so thankful for our healthy and thriving boys. I was fortunate to follow through with my plan for a natural and unmedicated delivery."
The twins join older sister Leela Grace, three.
The Unforgettable star and her husband Don Wallace are set to welcome the tots this summer (12).
She tells Life & Style magazine, "Even when my doctor saw only one baby in our first ultrasound, my husband said he strangely felt there were two babies.
"When they finally saw the second baby at three months, my jaw dropped to the floor, and my husband said with a huge smile, 'I told you so!'"
It's the actress' second pregnancy - daughter Leela turns three in July (12). And the mum-to-be admits her first was a breeze.
She adds, "I literally hiked mountains during my ninth month. With twins, it's like walking around with a boulder in my belly and a belt around my lungs. I can barely walk two blocks, and I'm only in my fifth month!"
In a move we all saw coming, CBS has finally officiated the full season pickups of its new drama series, Person of Interest and Unforgettable.
If you haven't been following, Person of Interest is the all too real crime drama series about a pair of mysterious men, played by Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson, who make it their mission to prevent violent crimes before they occur, via the help of a special machine that predicts individuals who will be somehow involved in a murder. Caviezel plays John Reese, an expert soldier, former government operative, and shell-of-a-man with nothing to lose, thanks to a broken heart. Emerson's Mr. Finch is a character with far less known about him. The only things we know for sure: he built the show's central machine for the government for the purposes of predicting high-profile terrorist activity, but somewhere along the line became just as concerned with the day-to-day crimes and lives of "ordinary people." The overlying theme of the show, depicted via the abundance of surveillance cameras and frequent phone-tapping: someone is always watching, for better or worse.
Also starring in the show are Taraji P. Henson, playing a detective bent on capturing the mysterious Reese, and Kevin Chapman, playing a crooked cop who is consistently at the mercy of the starring duo. The series was created by screenwriter Jonathan Nolan (who co-writes his brother Christopher Nolan's Batman series), and is produced by J.J. Abrams. Person of Interest airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
Unforgettable is another crime drama series, with play on the traditional detective story. Poppy Montgomery stars as Carrie Wells, a New York City police officer who uses her gift-and-a-curse ability to remember everything that has ever happened to her (with the exception of the events on the day her sister was killed) to solve cases. Wells struggles with her condition and lives with the consistent drive to solve her sister's murder.
Montgomery is joined by Dylan Walsh, who plays her partner and ex-lover Al Burns. Also on the force: Michael Gaston, Kevin Rankin and Daya Vaidya. Actress Marilu Henner serves as a consult for the show, as she is an actual sufferer of hyperthymesia, the condition that afflicts Wells. She will play a guest role as Wells’ aunt in a November episode. Unforgettable airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
