‘Big Brother’ Star Britney Haynes Reveals Her Baby Girl Has Cancer
Britney Haynes, who was featured on both ‘Big Brother’ season 12 and 14, welcomed a baby girl on July 13 with husband Nathan “Ryan” Godwin, but she’s now revealed that her child has cancer.
At the time of her birth, Tilly Elizabeth was, according to Haynes (via Twitter), “happy, healthy, and amazing” but her prognosis now is much more bleak.
Haynes shared the heartbreaking news on her Facebook account, which has been preserved via a screenshot below:

At first, many thought the message was a hoax, seeing that it was only a screenshot, but ‘Big Brother’ Season 8 and 12 contestant “Evel Dick” Donato confirmed the news, saying Haynes contacted her ‘BB’ family about the devastating news via text.

Haynes has since received an outpouring of support, leading her to reach out to fans on Saturday (Sept. 14) to thank them for their kind words.
“Thank you for all of the thoughts, wishes, and prayers for my precious girl. She’s everything to me. #PrayforTilly,” she tweeted alongside a photo of her baby.
We wish Britney, baby Tilly and her family all the best.
