Soleil Moon Frye is reflecting on her own family’s experience with COVID-19.
The Punky Brewster star recently revealed in an Instagram post that three out of her four children have tested positive for coronavirus. Following their results, the 44-year-old mom is now urging parents to get their kids tested if they begin to show symptoms, as she did with her one of her sons.
“I thought my son had a cold or a fever,” she captioned the Aug. 1 post of herself alongside her four kids—Poet, 15, Jagger, 13, Lyric, 7, and Story, 5—who she shares with ex Jason Goldberg. “I did not know that he had Covid-19. With the encouragement of our doctor, I had him tested.”
After her son got a positive test result, Soleil explained, the actress canceled a scheduled work trip and rushed back home, only to find that two of her other kids had also tested positive.
