Conor McGregor sends well-wishes to Kim Zolciak-Biermann’s 8-year-old son ahead of facial surgery.
Former two-division champion Conor McGregor sent a video to an 8-year-old boy who was about to have facial reconstruction surgery. The child is the son of Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kim Zolciak-Biermann and former NFL player Kroy Biermann. Kash was bit by the family dog in 2017 while filming their reality show Don’t Be Tardy, a spin-off of the Real Housewives franchise.
Fans watched as he recovered from the very serious attack and then as they rehabilitated the dog. Zolciak-Biermann shared the video and the story on her Instagram.
“I waited to share this story until my baby was healed,” she wrote. “Kash is such a trooper the toughest, bravest little boy I have ever met. Last month Kash had reconstructive surgery from the dog bite 3 years ago. We knew the night of the bite/surgery that he most likely would need another surgery in the future to correct the injury. It was pretty severe and due to the severity of the swelling that night our plastic surgeon Dr Joseph Williams (the best) did the very best he could. I’ll never forget that day as long as I live and as much as we thought we “put it in the back of our minds” when Kash came out of surgery this time it hit Kroy and I pretty hard. Not only us but Kash and KJ as well. We had a rough couple days. Kroy and I cried many many times alongside Kash. We sat in the plastic surgeons parking lot (only one parent could go in and I knew Kroy could handle it better than me) but when Kash/Kroy came out and sat in the backseat with Kash on his lap and tears streamed down both their faces, I could barely breathe. My heart was broken that we even had to go through all this again. I posted on my close friends that we really needed prayers and to please help us (not from complications) from bad memories and feelings. I even sent a message to my friend @giotraining in tears asking if [Conor McGregor] (Kash’s all-time favorite fighter) could send an encouraging message to Kash to keep him strong. Anything to make my baby happy. Finally the very next morning (3 days after surgery) Not even kidding 8hrs after my post on my close friends, Kash woke up, (we had to sleep together for weeks so we could keep him elevated all night) he looked right into my eyes and said , “Mom I feel great!” I knew we were on the road to recovery. I didn’t cry again until 10 days later at Kj’s basketball game we took a picture together (last pic)and I realized how incredible he looks and how blessed we are to have Dr. Williams and so many others that truly care. Conor’s video had me in tears I could barely speak, I mean it’s Conor McGregor but it was also his message. There are no [words to] express my gratitude 2 not only Gio, but Conor, my supportive husband, our surgeon, my family & friends.”
