Actress Jenny Mollen, who is married to “American Pie” actor Jason Biggs, revealed that their 5-year-old son was sent to a hospital’s intensive care unit after she accidentally dropped him on his head over the weekend.
Her son, named Sid, suffered a skull fracture in the incident, she said.
“I am forever grateful to Lenox Hill downtown and @nyphospital for their immediate response and aid,” Mollen wrote on Instagram.

She posted a photo of her holding Sid, with his face was covered by an emoji.
Sid was released from the hospital and is now at home, she said, adding that he is “taking things slowly and recovering nicely.”
He is now “eating a lot of chocolate dipped ice cream cones,” she remarked.
Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen's 5-year-old son, Sid, is recovering from a broken skull after being dropped.
The 39-year-old also thanked her husband for his support, saying “thank God for you.” Biggs and Mollen got married in 2008, and the two had two sons, including a 1-year-old.
“My heart goes out to all parents who have or will ever find themselves in this kind of position. You are not alone…” Mollen explained.
In the past, Mollen has gone on Instagram to express her worries as a mother, including one instance when her 1-year-old was bitten by a dog on Thanksgiving Day.
Her post about her 5-year-old’s health scare prompted a number of commenters to react.
“I so so appreciate you using your platform to be transparent about something that is so mortifying but also so common. [Expletive] happens. I hope everyone is recovering well,” one user wrote.
The Office star Angela Kinsey offered words of support in the post, saying, “Sending you and your family my love. I am so glad Sid is okay!! That must have been so scary. As parents we try out best but things can go south in a split second. Thank you for sharing.”
