A few days ago, ‘Fixer Upper’ star Joanna Gaines shared footage of her ultrasound on her Instagram account.

While many were quick to congratulate her and her husband on their pregnancy, some fans took to the comment section to point out something worrisome.

In the footage, fans pointed out that there appears to be extra fluid around the baby.

According to TMZ, the condition is known as hydrops fetalis and poses a potential risk to the baby.

The publication spoke to a radiologist regarding this concern, who said based on the footage there does appear to be excess fluid around the baby, but she would need to see the entire ultrasound before coming to any conclusions.

TMZ did reach out to the couple’s representative for comment. At the time of this posting, the rep has not refuted the findings.

Chip swears he can already tell it's a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!! ????????❤️❤️ #5
