Jim Edmonds of Real Housewives of Orange County revealed he tested positive for coronavirus and pneumonia on Wednesday night.
Meghan Edmonds’ ex-husband said the tests were positive, but that he is now “completely symptom-free.
“So I must have had her for a while,” he deduced in an Instagram story.
“Thank God I quarantined myself,” he told the camera.
He revealed that his daughter is being tested, but has no symptoms. The 49-year-old boy revealed on Saturday that he was in the hospital and was testing for COVID-19.
He put the caption to a photo with a mask in a hospital bed: “I held out as long as I could. I thought I was strong enough to make it. “This virus is no joke. It’s no joke.”
Less than two weeks ago – on March 19 – however, the reality TV personality took a trip to Costco where he bragged about losing more than $2,000 in merchandise.
He was accused of being a food hoarder during the crisis, when he showed off his freezer and his fridge overflowing with goods.
The hospitalization took place after his ex-wife Meghan, 35, revealed she had difficulty taking care of their three children, Aspen, 3 years old, and twins Hayes and Hart, 21 months old, while she was in quarantine for the coronavirus.
Earlier last week she posted that she is “hanging in there” and doing everything she can to stop her children from “screaming and crying. He wrote on Instagram: “Quarantine day (???) and mom is still hanging in there! “I get by with a little help from my friends, aka a moisturizing face mask and a glass of red wine (which I’m hiding in my @disneyjunior cup)”.
She continued: “I’ve received a lot of messages from people saying ‘I don’t know how you do it’ or ‘you make single mom life seem easy!
“…well… It is NOT and I don’t want to portray the idea that I’m going through this strange and crazy moment”.
She added that while she was “blessed” to share the extra time with them, it was “hard”.
She continued, “There are times when I have to depend on screen time more than I would like or give the kids snacks that I don’t usually do just to make them stop screaming or crying”.
The former star of Real Housewives of Orange County has admitted that she is also focusing on herself “staying at the top of her health” and treating herself with “face masks”.
She ended the post with: “After talking to some of my friends in our #momsquad group, we realized how many people probably think our life is so easy right now, so we all wanted to get together and share what each of us are doing to get through our days, whether it’s showing some of our essential things at home or sharing the best way to #treatyourself at home.
Fortunately, Jim Edmonds and Meghan followed the advice of their pediatrician who advised them to leave the children where they were when isolation began.
She revealed, “They will stay with me until this passes. Stay safe, kids.”
