Nancy Grace Hospitalized

ATLANTA (AP) _ A CNN spokeswoman says that "Headline News'' talk anchor Nancy Grace has been hospitalized with blood clots in her lungs as a complication of her pregnancy.

Network spokeswoman Janine Iamunno says the 48-year-old Grace gave birth prematurely to twins on November fourth.

Grace sought treatment Sunday after she experienced discomfort and began having trouble breathing on her way to church.

Iamunno says after Grace was brought to the emergency room, doctors found two blood clots in her lungs.

She says Grace is expected to be released by the end of the week.

Grace gave birth to twins, a boy, John David, and a girl, Lucy Elizabeth, after doctors induced labor two months before her due date.

John David weighed 5 pounds, 1 ounce and Lucy Elizabeth weighed 2 pounds, 15 ounces.

Grace had developed a pulmonary edema, or fluid in the lungs, and doctors told her it would be better for her health, and that of the children, if they induced labor early.

Iamunno said previously that Grace, a former prosecutor with the Fulton County District Attorney's office, plans to return to hosting her legal news show as soon as possible.

Her husband, David Linch, is an Atlanta investment banker.
