Just a week after Melissa Joan Hart shared she had contracted a breakthrough case of Covid-19, another celebrity mom is opening up about her experience with the infection. Hilary Duff has tested positive for the virus, even though she is fully vaccinated, according to ET Online.
This is not the “Younger” star’s first brush with Covid-19 — in November of last year, the actress took to social media to update her fans that she had been exposed to Covid while pregnant.
Now, just a few days after updating fans that her new show, “How I Met Your Father,” is in full swing, the mom of three took to her Instagram Story with an unfortunate update about her health. “That delta…she’s a little b***h,” the new mama wrote — she and husband Matthew Koma welcomed their daughter Mae in March (via People). Duff went on to describe her symptoms, noting she had a “bad headache.” The star added, “No taste or smell. sinus pressure. Brain fog.”
Finally, the former Disney star noted, “Happy to be vaxxed” (via Los Angeles Times).
Hilary Duff's family is separated from her at this time
Despite being sick, the good news is that the actress seems to already be feeling better. A day ago, Duff noted via her Instagram Story that she has gotten her sense of taste back. Her snack of choice? Almond Butter Filled Pretzels from Trader Joe’s!
The star did not share if she quarantined away from her family, although, as E! Online points out, a look at Koma’s Instagram Story shows he has been living in his son Luca’s room since Duff tested positive (via PopSugar). He also shared a hilarious video of his quarantine Zoom dance lesson — with the famous hubby wearing only underwear and a scarf.
Meanwhile, WebMD reports that breakthrough infections, which happen when a fully-vaccinated person tests positive for Covid-19, may be more prevalent due to the highly-contagious nature of the Delta variant. The outlet also notes that these cases underscore how important it will be for people to receive booster shots when they become available.
