Neil Patrick Harris & Family Had Coronavirus Earlier This Year: 'I Didn't Want To Be Paranoid About It'

Neil Patrick Harris is the latest celebrity to reveal that he and his family overcame coronavirus earlier in the year.

The -year-old actor shared that husband David Burtka and their twin children, Harper and Gideon, 9, were all affected by the pandemic while speaking with the Today show.

“It happened very early [in the pandemic], like late March, early April,” he said. “We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn’t want to be paranoid about it. And then I lost my sense of taste and smell, which was a big indicator, so we holed up.”

Neil, David, Harper and Gideon have all since recovered from the infection.

He shared that all four of them now “have antibodies and are feeling good.”

“We want to make sure everyone’s doing their best to slow this down every way possible, for sure,” Neil added.

Dwayne Johnson also just recently revealed that his own family were affected by the virus. See his warning to others here…
