Travis Barker's ex-wife Shanna Moakler has sent well wishes to the father of her children.

"Thank you to everyone who has reached out with concern to my ex and father of my children. I know he is in great hands and surrounded by loving support and the best medical teams available and his beautiful wife Kourtney [Kardashian]," said Moakler in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.

The Celebrity Big Brother alum said she is praying for a "speedy recovery" and that she will "always be there for him and my children."

Barker was hospitalised on Tuesday for what was later determined to be pancreatitis. According to TMZ, doctors believe a recent colonoscopy triggered the condition.

Moakler's statement comes after her and Barker's daughters, Alabama and Atiana, expressed their gratitude to their Instagram followers for sending love and prayers.

A source confirmed to People that Barker is "getting the best care at Cedars," noting that doctors are focusing on pain management and determining the Blink 182 drummer's exact condition via a series of tests and a modified diet.
