Broadway's Patti Murin Believes She Has Coronavirus While Pregnant

Patti Murin, known for playing Princess Anna in Frozen on Broadway, is currently pregnant with a baby girl with her husband Colin Donnell, and she just announced her doctors believe she has Coronavirus.

“I started feeling very tired and achy with a fever and a cough that makes it feel like my head is splitting open from the inside out, and after talking to my incredible OBGYN, my GP, and a very kind doctor at Mt. Sinai over video conference, they are pretty certain it’s COVID-19. I can’t get tested unless I start having trouble breathing, so I’m going to count my lucky stars that I seem to be leaning towards the mild end of the scale. And sure, while it would be nice to know if I’m positive or not, I’m not willing to walk into a waiting room and possibly get other people sick just for my own selfish informational purposes. Recovery plan for me is the same either way: sleep, tons of fluids, and Tylenol,” the 39-year-old actress posted on Instagram.

“I AM FINE, I SWEAR, AND SO IS THE BABY! This virus can’t cross the placenta, so my uterus is literally the safest place for little peanut right now. I’m eating and drinking all the water in the world, and she’s kicking me almost hourly now, so I know she’s growing stronger by the day,” she continued.

“I’m so lucky. There are so many others who are not. Please keep turning your attention to them, and to the essential workers and the insanely brave and strong medical personnel, and to the people who are stocking your grocery shelves and delivering your food.
The world is crazy right now, but this is not forever. Remember that. Love to all!,” Patti concluded.

We’re wishing Patti well and hope she gets better soon!

Broadway's 'Frozen' Stars Celebrate One-Year Anniversary!

Caissie Levy and Patti Murin hug it out on the red carpet while attending the one-year anniversary party for Disney’s Frozen the Musical on Sunday (March 24) at the Intercontinental Hotel in New York City.

The show’s leading ladies were joined at the event by Kristoff actor Jelani Alladin and the current Hans actor Joe Carroll.

The musical had its official opening night performance on March 22, 2018. In the show’s first year on Broadway, it has grossed over $95 million in ticket sales!

“It’s been a year since we opened officially on Broadway, but almost THREE years since I’ve been involved in the making of #FrozenBroadway. It has been one of the most challenging and rewarding things I’ve ever done. Ive never been so grateful that this is where life has led me, and I’m living these days by the words of Macklemore and Kesha: ‘Someday these will be the good old days.’ Also I plan to stay forever because thinking about my hypothetical ‘final performance’ as Anna sends me into cataclysmic shock,” Patti wrote on Instagram. “I just love you, my entire extended #FrozenBroadway family. Thank you for giving me all of your gifts, large and small.”
