The former reality TV star's grandma, Barbara James, was first to break the news.

"I would like to ask my Facebook friends to please say a prayer for my grandson Eric Kennemer," she wrote. "He was in a bad car wreck last night. He is in the hospital in Houston, TX. Say a prayer for his wife Myranda."

Eric and Myranda, who appeared on season 4 of the MTV show in 2012, share daughters Kaylee, 5, and Rylee, 2.

"Please God, give Eric the strength to become well again," Myranda tearfully wrote on Facebook on Monday, Jan. 9. "And please give me the strength to be strong for both of our wonderful children you have blessed us with, as well as him. Please let him come home soon. His children need him very much. And so do I."

Other family members have asked for prayers, as well.

Eric's aunt Tammy Hardy wrote, "Please be praying for my nephew Eric Kennemer, he has been in a car accident. He is in critical condition, but we serve a mighty God and we have peace in knowing HE is in total control of this situation."
