It's unclear what the circumstances were surrounding Anny and Robert's baby's death. Other than a brief reference to his heart, the bereaved mother didn't volunteer any details about Adriel's cause of death.

In November 2021, Anny shared a photo of Adriel hooked up to an IV via her Instagram story, according to TV Season Spoilers. She shared it was the fourth day her son had been in the hospital and asked followers to pray for him. "Today he is a little better," Anny captioned a photo of herself cradling her son, adding that Adriel had been "strong." However, Anny didn't provide specifics about his medical issues at that time, either.
