Actor Scott Baio's wife Renee Sloan-Baio has been diagnosed with chronic microvascular brain disease.
Baio, 57, wrote on Twitter this morning: "Unfortunately, this is true. Renee is forever my rock, my life & my soulmate! Toughest person I know."
The couple married in 2007 after meeting at the Playboy Mansion – they have two daughters Kalyn, 28 (his step-daughter) and Bailey, 10.
He added: "She was a former stuntwoman and had a massive brain injury in 92 due to a jet-ski accident.
"We don't know if her tumors and this new disease has anything to do with this.
"All we know is she must live as stress-free, depression free and anxiety free life as possible and a get good amount of sleep each night. This new disease can cause strokes and dementia."
Renee, 44, has been battling brain-related issues for several years.
Back in 2015 she revealed she had been diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumor.
She told fans she hoped her openness would help educate others and bring awareness to the importance of getting checked out.
