Overmars “became unwell last night and was admitted to hospital with a mild stroke”, the club said on its official Twitter account on Friday.
“Marc is doing well in the meantime, but will have to take it easy for a while. Marc and his family are focussing on his recovery and do not wish to comment further.”
The club added that it “wishes Marc a speedy recovery”.
Overmars left Ajax Amsterdam in February as their director of football after sending inappropriate messages and photos to female staff.
Antwerp appointed him a month later.
The 49-year-old made his name as a player at Barcelona and Arsenal.
