Jordi and his wife Kaitlin posted a live Instagram video on Thursday accompanied by a written message explaining how their family, including daughters Everly and Riley, all recently tested positive for the coronavirus. In the video, the couple explains that keeping this news from their fans and friends did not feel “authentic.” They were originally hesitant to share their story because many others around the world are experiencing worse situations. 

The couple expressed gratitude for the fact that they did not intermingle with the public while they were contagious. Apparently, they were exposed to an individual who tested positive for COVID-19, and the very next day, stay-at-home orders went into effect.

Kaitlyn started having symptoms first, detailing her experience as, “something I had never felt before.” Jordi began running a fever the following day. Kaitlin experienced difficulty breathing and was prescribed an inhaler, while Jordi had a fever for about three days and felt sick in general. 

The Vilasuso daughters battled the virus as well. Though children generally experience milder symptoms than adults, the girls actually got pneumonia, which the couple admitted, “was incredibly scary.” It has been nearly three weeks since Kaitlyn began showing signs of the virus, and now, the family seems to be smiling, recovered, and healthy. Jordi and Kaitlin offered prayers to those suffering from the coronavirus and took the time to thank workers and healthcare professionals who are aiding everyone during this time. In the video, as well as their written statement, the couple cautions people to please stay home.
