Kel Mitchell Gives Fans Health Update: ‘I’m Thanking God’

By Movieguide® Contributor

ALL THAT star Kel Mitchell is updating fans on his health following reports that he was hospitalized. 

“For those curious about recent events and my well-being, appreciate the concern and sending love your way. This should bring some clarity,” the actor captioned an Instagram video. 

In the clip, Mitchell explained, “I was out shopping when suddenly the whole room started spinning. So I was like, ‘I must be dehydrated so I need to go get some water, some food.’ When I did that, the whole right side of my arm was numb, followed by me not being able to swallow. That’s when I panicked. And so I drove myself to the hospital.”

After a CT scan, Mitchell was told that he had “a bulging disc” that was affecting his motor skills. 

“I’m thanking God that I am good. Thank y’all for all the prayers in the comments,” he concluded. 

Mitchell previously addressed the situation in another post, writing, “Grateful for the flood of prayers and positive vibes that surrounded me during a genuinely frightening time. The scare was real, but so was the support. With the grace of God and the skill of the medical team, I’m now on the road to recovery.”

Mitchell is set to reprise his role as Ed in the upcoming GOOD BURGER 2 alongside Kenan Thompson.

“Ed is one of those timeless characters that has brought so much joy and laughter to fans, and it’s such a beautiful blessing to still be doing it after all these years,” Mitchell said in a statement. “It’s super awesome to come back and continue the stories of Dex, Ed and Good Burger for both the people who grew up watching and their kids.”

Mitchell frequently talks about the importance of faith in his life. Movieguide® previously reported:

Kel Mitchell was once a hugely popular child star, but the actor recently shared the new role he’s felt called to take on — a youth minister. 

Mitchell became a star while appearing on Nickelodeon’s ALL THAT and KENAN & KEL. He still appears on TV and in movies from time to time, and became a licensed pastor in 2019. 

“I’ve always known God,” Mitchell explained. “Grew up in a church, but there’s a difference between knowing God and having a relationship with God. And I just got to a point in my life where I wanted to make sure that He was in everything that I do. Because when I was trying to figure out everything on my own, I got into a lot of frustration and situations.”
