Michael Strahan’s daughter Isabella has belated 19th birthday celebration after missing actual birth date due to brain surgery

Michael Strahan’s daughter Isabella shared an inside look into her belated 19th birthday celebration after missing her actual birth date while recovering from emergency brain surgery.

The teenager — whose birthday was in October — appeared in good spirits as she baked cupcakes with a close pal in a vlog posted to her YouTube channel Tuesday.

“We’re doing a little birthday celebration because I was not conscious for it,” she said while giggling. “Happy Birthday!”

Isabella was also joined in the vlog by her famous father and twin sister, Sophia, who helped light candles on the cupcakes before singing “Happy Birthday.”

The University of Southern California student also shared throwback footage of herself unconscious in a hospital bed for her birthday as her family decorated her room with balloons and a birthday sign.

A day before her big day, Isabella had undergone surgery to remove a “fast-growing, 4-centimeter tumor” from her brain after she noticed strange symptoms of “throwing up blood” and being unable to “walk straight.”

Following the surgery, Isabella was subjected to 30 days of rehabilitation as she learned how to walk again with the help of her family. She also underwent chemotherapy.

Despite a few setbacks, Isabella has remained optimistic in her journey.

Last week, Isabella also shared that she was suffering memory loss as a result of a new medication she started taking.

“I don’t remember Tuesday ’cause I’m given this drug to protect my hearing and just because I have a reaction to it, they give me Ativan,” she told her viewers.

“And for some reason — this happened last time too — I can’t remember a single thing about that day.”

“I’m just sitting on my couch now — literally I just want it to be June already,” she added. “I just wait around for the next time I get chemo and I’m kind of scared like, once I’m done, how am I gonna go back to normal life?”

In April, the model also emotionally opened up about her third craniotomy after developing a fever.

“It’s not as bad as the first time but I’m really in pain. They do give me pain medicine … they don’t work that well on me. So I’m in a lot of pain,” she said in a YouTube video while tearing up.

However, Isabella has also been proactive in preparing for her future as she froze her eggs shortly after receiving her diagnosis.

“Since chemo and radiation can affect my fertility, my first step was egg freezing,” she revealed in January.

“That was not fun for me … I am not a big needle person. I’ve gotten used to my blood and IVs, but shots? That was rough.”
