Jennie Garth has been hiding a health secret from her fans - she was diagnosed with a "leaky" heart valve seven years ago.
The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star has spoken out about her medical issues after mourning her father, who passed away last year (08) after battling heart disease for years.
She tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "I have a leaky valve and its a common thing. A lot of people have it and they dont know they have it (It) leaks blood.
"Its your connection to your heart... your artery, the main artery that goes to your heart. It sort of flutters open and shut... Its weird because sometimes when Im resting I can feel a little weird fluttering."
But she insists it's nothing to worry about for now: "Down the road its something that could get more complicated or it could not. People have had valve replacements and that kind of thing."
