Nate Berkus has been hospitalized with appendicitis and will undergo an appendectomy, a rep for the company that produces “The Nate Berkus Show” told People.

“He was on the ‘Today’ show this morning and he wasn’t feeling well,” the rep told the mag. “He powered through and then went straight to the hospital after that and they learned he had appendicitis.”

Nate is expected to undergo the appendectomy, and be back on his feet quickly.

“Doctors expect a quick recovery,” the rep added.

As a result of Nate’s diagnosis and pending surgery, he’s had to push back tapings of his design-based talk show, however, he is expected to return to work in the coming days.

“He had to postpone tapings for now. He would have taped two shows today,” the rep said. “It’s anticipated that he will be back next week.”
