Soleil Moon Frye reflects on her own family’s experiences with COVID-19.
The Punky Brewster star recently announced in an Instagram post that three of her four children tested positive for coronavirus. According to the results, the 44-year-old mother is now asking parents to have their children tested if they show symptoms, as she did with her son.
“I thought my son had a cold or a fever,” she captioned the August 1st post next to her four children –poet, fifteen, Hunter, 13, Lyrical, 7 and story, 5 – whom she shares with ex Jason Goldberg. “I didn’t know he had Covid-19. At the suggestion of our doctor, I had him tested.”
After her son got a positive test result, Soleil said the actress canceled a planned work trip and rushed home only to find that two of her other children had also tested positive.
