Selma Blair Shares New Photo With 8-Year-Old Son Arthur Amid Multiple Sclerosis Battle


Selma Blair has been battling multiple sclerosis and she’s been very open about her struggles. She recently went on Good Morning America for an interview with Robin Roberts to talk about how she’s doing. More recently, she posts a photo with her 8-year-old son, Arthur, along with an emotional message.

“It is darkest before the dawn, I have always heard. And I keep it in mind,” her post begins. “I still get overwhelmed in the chaos of the dark. And I am so deeply moved at how many people called or wrote or left comments after my last post.”

“The old me was ashamed,” Blair continues. “Ashamed to be so transparent with vulnerability or fear. And I wanted to delete the image. The heart bruised words. But you all changed that with your words of support. I was humbled … Maybe I will print and put in a book for when I need it again.”

She notes that she “failed as a mom a million times yesterday” but “Arthur was fine.” She writes, “The world didn’t stop. I cried. He laughed. He played a fishing video for me. We slept and woke and he took this. He is golden. Alive. Happy.”

Blair ends her touching and moving post:

“Thank you universe. I will get there. Have patience. Thank you. All of us. Be gentle. With ourselves and others. It is a wonderful feeling. Thank you to everyone here and in my life who did that for me the last few days. I can do this now. 🖤”

Selma Blair has a new look after her latest multiple sclerosis treatment. The actress has shaved her head completely as she recovers from the treatment. Blair has been very open about how her life is with MS. She admits she struggles daily but keeps a positive attitude about life.

The photo showcases the actress standing next to her bike that helps her get around and her cane. She opens the post with, “Today is a banner day. I am being discharged from the care of an incredible team of nurses and techs and a visionary Dr. who believes in my healing as much as I do.”

Blair continues, “This has been a process. And will continue to be one. I am immunocompromised for next three months at least. So no kisses please. … I see things so much more clearly now. And I am excited to share this journey when I am ready. For now, I have recovery.”

We are praying for Selma Blair through this entire process!
