Though afflicted with a heart ailment, Jennie Garth leads a normal life, the actress’ husband, Twilight star Peter Facinelli, tells People.

“My wife has a leaky valve, which is pretty common. A lot of people have a leaky valve and they don’t even know that they have it,” Facinelli, 35, said.

“But there’s really nothing you can do for it, so you just leave it alone.” says some reports misconstrued the story by claiming Garth, 37, suffers from heart disease. Facinelli said. “I don’t know how that happened. I was sitting at home with her, and I saw a ticker tape on the news that said, ‘Jennie Garth has heart disease.’ I said, ‘Honey, you didn’t tell me.’ But no, she’s fine. She’s fine.”
