Iya Villania shared via social media the situation in their home after she and husband Drew Arellano tested positive for COVID-19.
In an Instagram post, Iya relayed that they have to be isolated from their kids after contracting the virus. The television host admitted that it has been a struggle being isolated from their children.
"This post is for all mamas and papas that are going thru the same thing and have to endure not hugging and kissing their children 💔 this was the hardest thing to accept upon learning I was + (and I’m not [talking] about my pregnancy test)," she wrote.
In the said post, Iya shared a photo of their kids wherein their youngest child Allana can be seen crying from the other side of the glass door,
"Primo (their eldest) gets it, Leon (their second child) is okay too because he follows his kuya’s lead, but Alana?? Boy, it broke my heart to see her cry for me and not being able to console her even for a bit 💔 so mamas in this same situation, you are not alone! My tip? Try not to cry!!!! 😂 coz the tears will only cause nasal congestion and lengthen recovery! 🤣 I know, I know… ang hirap!" she posted.
Iya shared that she got emotional too upon seeing Alana crying.
"Man, I CRIED!!! But you have to get over it as soon as you can and get in that speed car towards recovery for your family ❤️ Kapit guys! There’s a whole bunch of us! We can do it!" she said.
