Charlie Sheen is setting the record straight about the health of his twin sons, Bob and Max, born 7 weeks premature.
Despite reports by some media outlets, Entertainment Tonight reported correctly that Max did have an issue with his heart.
In a new interview with E.T., Sheen explains, “They (Bob and Max) were 7 weeks early so things were still developing. Max has something called ejection fracture. It’s the volume at which the heart pumps and how much blood the heart can pump. There wasn’t anything that any other premature child, especially a twin, doesn’t normally go through. Things are gradually going toward normal.” Charlie goes on to explain the condition that kept baby Max in the NICU longer than brother Bob, “The reason he had to stay longer in the hospital than Bob was a weight issue.”
The Sheens tell E.T. that the twins are “doing great.” “They are completely Sheens,” Brooke jokes. “They don’t have any Mueller genes. I’m like, ‘Can I at least have an ear?!’ Bob looks identical to Charlie. Everybody at the NICU called him Charlie. And Max looks like (Charlie’s dad) Martin.”
Charlie also has two daughters –Sam and Lola – with ex-wife Denise Richards.
E.T.’s new interview with the Sheens airs today and Friday.
