Bruno Mars’s Mother ‘In Critical Condition’ Following Heart Attack

Bruno Mars’ beloved mum Bernadette Hernandez is said to be in a critical condition after suffering a serious heart attack over the weekend.

The 55-year-old was reportedly whisked to a hospital close to her home in Honolulu, Hawaii on Friday (May 30), with her condition said to be stable at the time of writing.

“Bernadette is in hospital and the grandkids are all here, I’m looking after them,” family friend Anita Sojot told Star magazine. “The family is on it’s way here right now and we are going to discuss what do next.”

Bruno – one of six children raised by Bernadette and dad Peter, a musician, in the Wakiki area of Honolulu – has previously admitted that his desire to perform started early when his uncle, an Elvis Presley impersonator, encouraged him to mimic The King of Rock n’ Roll.

“I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” he told Rolling Stone of his musical childhood in April. “Because I feel like I can enjoy this so much.”

At the age four he wrote and recorded a heartfelt song for Bernadette – a singer and hula dancer in her youth – called I Love You Mom.

“My mommy helps me with my voice/cuz a superstar singer is my first choice,” goes one of its lyrics.
