Bijou Phillips recovering after life-saving kidney transplant

Bijou Phillips is recuperating following a successful kidney transplant.

The actress’s husband Danny Masterson shared an Instagram photo of his wife in hospital with the kidney donor who saved her life.

“My lady has been slowing dying for the past 7 years of an incurable kidney disease,” he wrote in the accompanying caption. “She was given the gift of an encore by a tall angel.

“Our daughter will have a mother. We do not take lightly how incredibly fortunate we are. 100% successful transplant. Now the real work begins for her to silence any chance of rejection.”

The That ’70s Show star added: “Our deepest gratitude to a perfect transplant team. And a life owed to a tall drink of water. Sláinte!”

Danny revealed Bijou’s battle with kidney disease earlier this year after she was hospitalised with a blood infection.

The 37-year-old needed a transplant after several years of  dialysis, and trying to stay healthy by leading “a stress-free life with a vegan diet”.

Danny and Bijou started dating in 2004 and married in 2011. They are parents to three-year-old daughter Fianna.
