Sarah Michelle Gellar experienced her first "helpless" moment as a parent.
The 39-year-old actress, who shares two kids with husband Freddie Prinze Jr., took to Instagram on Friday to reveal her 4-year-old son, Rocky, was recently rushed to the hospital.
Sharing a pic of Rocky wearing a hospital wristband and a bandage on his left index finger, Gellar revealed she "made it seven years" before she had to take one of her children to the emergency room.
"I think that's a pretty good stretch," she exclaimed. "It was a long night and apparently a nasty virus, but thankfully Rocky was released."
"I'm not going to lie, watching your child not be able to breathe, is the most helpless I have ever felt," she continued. "Thank you to all the great doctors and nurses (and staff) who work tirelessly 24 hours a day to help."

We take a look back at the original Charmed, and what made it so special...
The premise for Charmed must have sounded simple - a female-centric show about three witches living in San Francisco that would cash in on the success of Buffy The Vampire Slayer on the still-new WB network. They wouldn’t just be witches, but also sisters, relatable across demographics with Prue (Shannen Doherty) - the late-20s sensible one, Piper (Holly Marie Combs) - the neurotic middle sister, and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) - the wayward college dropout.
The late-90s was an era of Us network television that fostered a whole bunch of series focusing on ‘kick-ass’ female leads - Buffy, Xena, Dark Angel etc. - but what Charmed wanted to do was slightly different. From the start, the »

The CW has officially announced that it has ordered a pilot script for a reboot of Charmed from Jennie Snyder Urman (Jane the Virgin), with TV Line reporting that the reimaging will take place in 1976 and follow three witches who are brought together to fight evil in a small New England town.
The reboot will feature an all new cast, and the site managed to get its hands on unofficial character descriptions for the three new leads:
Tina: African American. Whip-smart, Tina is one dissertation (and one dissertation advisor) away from a PhD. She can be reserved, even standoffish, in uncomfortable situations, but she picks up on everything and she’s definitely making quick, accurate judgments about you.
Paige: Caucasian Cheerful, curvy, wholesome and as all-American as the apple pie she can’t wait to serve to the husband she has yet to marry. Paige’s main goal in life »

Television audiences should prepare themselves to be bewitched once more, as The CW is reportedly bringing a long-gestating Charmed prequel to its schedule at an as-yet undisclosed point in the future. While the original series featured a contemporary setting, the prequel show will be set in 1976, and will possibly dispense with the familial connections between the main characters, in favour of a ‘found family’ situation.
The original Charmed ran for eight seasons, from 1998 to 2006, on The WB. Its first three seasons starred Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, and Shannen Doherty as the Halliwell sisters – a trio of sibling witches who found themselves fighting evil in their town, while wearing remarkable outfits. By the fourth season, Doherty (and her character) left the series, and was replaced in the cast by Rose McGowan, as a new member of the top-lining trio. Charmed was created by Constance M. Burge, and was an Aaron Spelling production. »

Now that we've had a few hours to let the news sink in that there's a very real possibility Charmed could be coming back in some form, some of the stars of the original series have come forward with their thoughts.
"We wish them well," the actress commented via Twitter.
Holly played Piper Halliwell on the series throughout the entire series.
If you recall, Piper had the power to freeze her surrounding environments, but she gained a new power as the series progressed.
That power to was to make evil beings or objects explode. It was a neat trick, but could any of the new characters have these powers?
Alyssa Milano was also on tap to share her two cents on the series.
"Charmed fans! There are no fans like you. »
