wisinWisin‘s newborn daughter was born with a genetic disorder.

The Urban music star revealed to Puerto Rico’s “Lo Se Todo” that his baby, Victoria, has trisomy 13 – is a rare chromosomal disorder in which all or a portion of chromosome 13 appears three times rather than twice in cells of the body.

In many affected infants and children, this may include developmental delays, profound mental retardation, brain and heart malformations, and other physical abnormalities.

Wisin and his family released a statement saying, “As the public now knows, our daughter Victoria was born a couple of days ago. She was diagnosed with trisomy 13 and is in a stable condition. I have always respected and collaborated with the press about every my professional career. But on this occasion, our daughter’s health is the most important thing for us,” the statement read. “In this respectful manner, we request the space to face this situation in the privacy of our family. We want to take advantage of this moment to thank everyone for the love that we have received. Like any other parent, we ask that you all continue to pray for us so that we can overcome this process and that our daughter will be able to recover soon. God will fulfill his purpose in our Victoria.”

Wisin also revealed that his wife is currently dealing with depression over the entire situation.
