Pneumonia is an infection that inflames the air sacs in one or both lungs, causing cough with phlegm or pus, fever, chills, and difficulty breathing.
A variety of factors can cause the illness. The most common is from the bacteria and viruses in the air. Reports indicated that COVID-19 might cause pneumonia, which can become severe.
Meanwhile, his estranged wife, Tori Spelling, posted a photo of herself posing with their kids in front of a giant Christmas tree inside Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa in southern California.
"Happy New Year's Eve 2021..." the actress wrote in the caption. "The kiddos and I were so excited to continue our family tradition since my oldest were babies. Love you @lakearrowheadresortandspa! My parents used to bring my brother and I here growing up. I wanted my kids to continue that tradition. I can't wait for my kids to bring their kids here one day! Thx @liammcdermott2007 for taking an awesome pic."
Spelling and McDermott tied the knot in May 2006. The pair shared five children - Liam,14, Stella, 13, Hattie, 10, Finn, 9, and Beau, 4. Despite being together for 15 years, the duo reportedly is headed for a divorce.
Sources claimed the actor's sex addiction is one of the main reasons their romance is coming to an end.
