Tamra Judge has shared video of her sweet little granddaughter Ava, who only has one kidney!

The brave little girl, now 3, was shown on Instagram in diapers, happy, laughing and splashing around in a pool.

But she once had been the subject of concern when, as RadarOnline.com reported in 2016, the Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra's daughter-in-law, Sarah Rodriguez claimed that Ava had simply lost one of her kidneys! Rodriguez gave birth to the baby girl by Tamra's oldest child, Ryan Veith, in Feb. 2015.

"She had two kidneys in utero and by the time she was born it had gone away," Rodriguez said.

But Tamra, 50, later explained on The Doctors TV show that year that Ava does, in fact, only have one functioning kidney due to multi-cystic dysplastic kidney.

Rodriguez told RHOC fans that "long term, doctors want to see her every six months with an ultrasound so they can make sure whatever caused the left kidney to disintegrate doesn't happen to the right kidney."

At the time, Tamra also joked on The Doctors, "I'm here to set the record straight: it was taken by aliens, the kidney."

Tamra and her daughter-in-law also confirmed on the medical show that one of Ava's kidneys is "functioning perfectly and compensating for the other."

Still, in another terrifying moment for new parents Ryan and Sarah two years ago, Ava was rushed to the hospital emergency room.

Luckily, it turned out to only be a viral infection for the adorable tot.

Now, Ava is healthy and happy and it's clear she's the apple of her grandma's eye!
