Alexa PenaVega’s 2-year-old son loses fingertip in ‘traumatic’ accident

Alexa PenaVega revealed her 2-year-old son, Kingston, is recovering after losing his fingertip in a distressing accident at home.

“While getting the kids ready for bed, I shut Kingston’s fingers in the hinge of the bathroom door,” the “Spy Kids” star, 33, wrote on her Instagram Story Tuesday.

“His first finger is bruised and a little bloody, but his middle finger took the brunt of it and was severed from the first knuckle near the tip,” she continued. “It was the most traumatic thing we’ve had go through as a family.”

The actress — who also shares son Ocean, 4, and daughter Rio, 5 months, with husband Carlos PenaVega — added that she felt “mom guilt” following her middle child’s injury.

“The shame was really hard to get through,” Alexa wrote. “But thank God for the sweet little bruiser Kingston is.”

The mother of three applauded Carlos, 32, for taking “amazing” care of Kingston, who she noted handled the incident “like a champ.”

“It took a minute for all of us to process what happened. If anything, it made us all love each other even more and humbled us completely,” she wrote. “Thankfully, Kingston is already doing flips like nothing happened. Gosh, I love my babies.”

In a separate post to her Story, Alexa revealed that doctors were unable to “reattach the piece of his finger” that had come off.

“Poor baby,” she concluded. “But the other nine are so cute! He’ll be more than fine.”

Alexa and Carlos tied the knot in January 2014, five months after getting engaged.

She was previously married to producer Sean Covel from October 2010 to December 2012.

The “Sleepover” actress told fans in June that she and Carlos of the boy band Big Time Rush do not “have any help” raising their family.

“There are days that I definitely wish I did,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.

“We’ll cook, we’ll clean, we’ll watch kids, we’ll work, we’ll do all that stuff all day long, but we totally feel guilty when we do stuff for ourselves which is silly because we know that’s silly. But we’re working on it.”
