Cobie Smulders, formerly of How I Met Your Mother, has a health secret. Smulders, 33, revealed in an interview with Women’s Health that she had cancer while on the show. She was diagnosed with tumors on both ovaries during season three, when she was 25. The cancer spread into the lymph nodes and surrounding tissues and she underwent two surgeries to remove it all. Smulders is married to SNL star Taran Killam and welcomed their second baby in January.

It was a suicide, said his sister, fellow ELR costar Madylin Sweeten. “He was a wonderful and sweet kid to be around. Just a great energy whenever he was there. My heart breaks for him, his family, and his friends during this very difficult time,” wrote Romano, who acted alongside Sawyer, who began playing one of the comedian’s twin sons on the show when he was 16 months old.
