Less than a month after celebrating Father’s day with his British father Derek Ramsay Sr. and his mom Medy in their home in the south, actor Derek Ramsay shared an unexpected updated about them on his social media accounts last July 16. The 44-year-old actor revealed that both his parents were still in the hospital after testing positive for the COVID-19 virus.
In his post, Derek wrote, “Having my mum and dad in [the] hospital fighting covid at the same time is the scariest thing I've experienced in my life. Thank you lord for keeping them strong and safe. Thank you to doc Carl and to all frontliners at St Luke's hospital who took good care of my folks. ”
In the same post, Derek revealed that both his parents have also been cleared to go home. Known for having a close relationship with both his parents, Derek is known for posting random photos of them on his Instagram account to show appreciation and love.
After spending most of last year apart while doing quarantine, Derek only started spending time with his parents again this year after the ease on protocols and safety restrictions.
In a post last year, Derek thanked Derek Sr. and Medy for always supporting him. He wrote, “Thank you lord for my parents who are always there for me and love me unconditionally. Mum and Dad thank you for everything you have done for me and the family. Thank you for keeping me strong, thank you for believing in me and thank you for protecting me. #sticksandstonescanbreakmybonesbutwordswillneverhurtme”
Last March, Derek proposed to Ellen Adarna after less than two months of dating. The couple are reportedly set to tie the knot within the year.
