Fans are concerned about Jamie Otis – known for appearing on Married at First Sight – after she wrote a heart-breaking post about her sister.

The star sheds a light on the success of MAFS, where participants get married to a total stranger, as that is where she met husband Doug Hehner.

As a result, the first season couple has amassed a huge fan base, which explains why so many are concerned about Jamie’s recent post.

She revealed that she feels “awful” for her sister, before adding that she got a call which is “every parent’s worst nightmare”. What happened to her?

Jamie Otis’ post about her sister

Jamie shared a post on September 3rd, which revealed that her sister “does not get to rock her babies to sleep tonight”.

The social media post showed Jamie cuddling her children to sleep.

She wrote:

Thankful to hold my babies, but I feel AWFUL for my sister. She doesn’t get to rock her babies to sleep tonight. She got a call yesterday that is every parents absolute worst nightmare.

Jamie added: “We immediately drove up to be with her & our family.

“Hold your babies tight…if you wanna say a prayer for my sis & nephew I know she’d appreciate it.”

Who is Jamie Otis’ sister?

  • She has two sisters Amylynn King, Johanna Harvey, and Leah King.

Jamie uploaded a previous post relating to the NICU, which refers to her sister Leah King Otis, her younger sibling.

However, a source exclusively revealed to Reality Titbit that it is her sister Amylynn’s child that has been “hurt” recently.

Jamie reportedly got custody of both of her sisters while growing up, due to issues that were taking place at home.

Leah is a sibling-of-five, who gave birth to a baby boy – now thought to be ten months old – at thanksgiving last year.

As Covid-19 restrictions were in place, Leah had to give birth alone.

What happened to Jamie Otis’ sister?

  • Jamie’s sister’s son Jayme was hospitalized.

Jamie’s nephew has been sent to Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital.

She explained that her sister had dropped Jayme and her niece Natalynn off at the babysitters “just like any other day”.

Jamie added: “But a few hours later she got a call that Jayme was in an ambulance on his way to the hospital.

“Jayme is a fighter & so are his parents. They haven’t left his side once since he’s been in the hospital.”

Several posts back explained that Leah had been at the hospital with her son, who is just a few months old, but this appears to be a separate incident.

He was born premature and spent time in the NICU for three months, but was released and able to go home a few days ago.

Born at 29 weeks, Jamie revealed “the doctors couldn’t make any promises” but had grown strong enough to leave the hospital.

The MAFS star had said that her nephew is a “happy little guy who is healthy and strong”, before her more recent post.
