Well, if anyone is interest in which celebs had PE- another to add to this list is Michelle Duggar from "18 kids and counting"

Tonight on the show she said she had an emergency C-section with her 2nd and 3rd child (twins) due to Preeclampsia. Obviously, that didn't stop her from having more.

I guess I just wonder how severe this was etc as I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that she has had no issues with her bp or births following the twins?

She might have had those twin pregnancy issues we see here, but more mildly because it wasn't her first pregnancy. Or it could have been a freak genetic thing.
