Hearts broke around the nation earlier this week, when it was revealed that Jimmy and Tori Rees' seven-week-old baby son Mack had suffered a medical emergency after complications from a tongue tie procedure.

Now the couple has taken to Instagram to update fans about Mack's condition.

Their faces showing the strain of the past five days, Jimmy and Tori are pictured standing over Mack and his twin brother Vinny with a caption detailing the traumatic events, and Mack's road to recovery. A second picture of the twins sleeping together is also included.

Tori begins her post, "A time that will be stuck in my head forever. I have the strongest little man in the world. Mack you are a true fighter."

"After a failed tongue tie snip on Thursday afternoon, my son was rushed by ambulance to Gosford hospital where he laid in resus and had over 30 people working on him. CPR, blood transfusions, ventilator, emergency surgery, NETS transfer, ICU, and a hell of a lot of drugs my Mack has proven the specialists wrong and is slowly mending."

She then goes on to thank the staff who cared for Mack.

"Gosford emergency department, you saved my sons life- you were incredible. I love my family, I love my sons, I love my friends, and thank you so much for your thoughts- we are going to be ok."

"A time we will never be able to erase. Thanking the wonderful doctors and nurses at both Gosford Hospital and Sydney Children's. Thank you all for your well wishes. Daddy loves you little Mack."

Between the two heart-wrenching posts, there have been more than 750 messages of support for the family.

An announcement was made on Monday, that Jimmy - who is the host of popular children's show Giggle and Hoot - would be withdrawing as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars to spend time with his family.

We're sure our readership is well and truly with us in wishing little Mack all the very best with his recovery.
