Sarah Michelle Gellar Spent the Night in the ER With Her 4-Year-Old Son

All better! Sarah Michelle Gellar spent the night of Thursday, January 12, in the emergency room with her 4-year-old son, Rocky James Prinze — but her youngest is doing just fine.

“Well I made it 7 years before I had to take one of my children to the ER (I think that’s a pretty good stretch),” she captioned an image of Rocky sitting on a chair at the doctor’s office via Instagram on Friday, January 13. “It was a long night and apparently a nasty virus, but thankfully Rocky was released. I’m not going to lie, watching your child not be able to breathe, is the most helpless I have ever felt.”

Gellar, 39, then thanked the medical staff for their kind attention and quick work. “Thank you to all the great doctors and nurses (and staff) who work tirelessly 24 hours a day to help,” she continued. “And thank you to his big sister, Charlotte who would not leave his side. (The best moment was when I was filling out his paperwork, and I was asked if Rocky was single – laughter is definitely a great medicine.)”

The Buffy alum shares Rocky and daughter Charlotte, 7, with husband Freddie Prinze Jr. She later shared a cute image of Rocky recuperating in a hospital bed, enthralled by a cartoon playing on the iPhone on his lap.
