“Prior to her being born, by sonogram we knew that there was something wrong with one of her kidneys,” the reality star told Bravo’s Daily Dish.

Though the reality star says docs thought everything eventually looked good prior to the birth, an ultrasound upon delivery confirmed the newborn only had one working kidney.

“There’s a lot of people in this world walking around with one functioning kidney that don’t even know it, but now, since they do so many tests, they can detect it,” she explained.

What does this mean for Ava Ryan these days, though?

“So just dietary restrictions. No, like, she can’t be a football player,” the 48-year-old added. “Don’t want to ruin that one kidney she has. But she’s healthy. She’s happy and she’s healthy.”

With things under control in the health department, the mother of four is enjoying time spent with her “beautiful” granddaughter who, she admits, “looks just like” daddy Ryan Vieth.

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
