The three kids of celebrity couple Iya Villania and Drew Arellano have all contracted COVID-19.

The Kapuso TV host-actress recently revealed that their five-month-old unica hija Alana also tested positive for the deadly virus following their sons, three-year-old Leon and five-year-old Primo.

Note the couple first contracted it and immediately isolated themselves, but the kids were not spared and one by one, they all tested positive.

Iya wrote on Instagram: “And here she is (broken heart emoji) my poor baby girl who’s probably having the hardest time dealing with symptoms (broken heart emoji) it’s unli cuddles for this one right now.”

According to her, Primo had a meltdown too.

“Kuya seemed like he had it all together until I noticed he wasn’t looking okay. I cuddled up next to him and then he started to cry (broken heart emoji) poor boy (broken heart emoji),” she said. “Leon on the other hand, by night, he was fine! like nothing happened. Not sure if that’s really it for him but so far since last night, he hasn’t had a fever and his demeanor is back to what it was before he got sick!”

“Had to give both Primo and Alana Calpol last night. Primo slept fine and woke up nalang to take another dose when he started to get warm again. So far his symptoms have been sneezing (which was only yesterday morning) and fever. Alana, on the other hand, has been warm and uneasy since last night and wants nothing but cuddles.”

Iya then shared the symptoms she has observed on her kids: sneezing (Primo), vomiting (Leon and Primo – which she found this happened during intake of medicines), and fever (all three kids).

“Hoping Leon is done with it for good (it’s day 3 for him today). I think Primo will be too soon because aside from his fever his demeanor is good, and hopefully so will Alana (Both day 2) hoping tmrw will be better for these monkeys,” she related. “Prayers and love to everyone else going thru this!”

The 35-year-old also shared: “On the upside, borders have now opened and everyone’s reunited. So now we can all help each other as the kids heal and recover. Drew and I aren’t going anywhere anyway so we can keep on counting days with the kids until everyone is well again.”
