The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro‘s daughter Ava Sue was involved in a scooter accident which led to injuries that required a surgery. The incident took place just a day before the girl’s fourth birthday.
Ava Sue sustained the injuries after falling off of her sit-down scooter. Unfortunately, she was left with bad scaring, extensive bruising and bad burns on her right elbow, shoulder, and around her right eye.

“Not the kind of day you want the day before turning 4. Just want to give a heartfelt thank you to [Kare MD Skin Health] for the emergency service and procedure to help lessen the likelihood of [scarring]. So proud of how brave my baby girl was during the surgery,” Alfonso wrote, along with photos of his daughter, as he thanked the medical staff for their quick reaction.
Angela on the other hands said that she had a feeling that something bad would happen, calling it a motherly instinct.
“I announced to the fam, kids, sitter & friends helping out getting ready for Ava’s birthday party that ‘we are not doing anything crazy or dangerous today that could potentially end up with an ER visit.’ I literally made everyone lock eyes to me when I said these words,” she posted.
The girl fell off of the scooter shortly after her mom’s prediction.
When Ava Sue was taken to Kare MD Skin Health, doctor Dr. Raffy decided she need to undergo a surgery in order to minimize the risks od potential scaring.
“Not a fun way to spend your last day as a 3-year old, but she was a trooper,” the mom wrote. “Giving this sweet girl some extra cuddles tonight.”
The staff at Kare MD Skin Health took their time to wish their young patient a very happy birthday through their Instagram and thank Alfonso for trusting their daughter to them.
“Thank you for the very kind words [Alfonso]. We are so honored to take care of your precious princess Ava. Best wishes for a speedy recovery,” they wrote in the caption.
We wish sweet Ava Sue a speedy recovery and a very happy birthday.
