In the midst of quarantine parenting, things got scary for P!nk, who tested positive for COVID-19 alongside her 3-year-old son, Jameson.
The singer, who revealed her diagnosis earlier this week, had a long discussion about her family’s experience with the coronavirus with friend and author Jen Pastiloff on Instagram on Sunday (April 5). The live chat was part of a “Chat and Feed” series to raise money to feed people in need.
“I haven’t dressed up in three weeks. I really needed it. Thank you for the opportunity,” P!nk said as she began to talk about this “crazy time.”
“We have been really, really sick,” she noted, though they are doing better now. “My 3-year-old, Jameson, has had the worst of it. I’ve had many nights where I’ve cried and I’ve never prayed more in my life.”
“At one point I heard myself saying, ‘I thought they promised us our kids would be OK.’ And it’s not guaranteed. There’s no one that is safe from this,” said P!nk, who later described her 3-year-old as “perfectly fine” before contracting COVID-19. Although she and Jameson fell ill, her husband Carey and daughter Willow did not.
“Jameson’s been really, really sick,” she explained. “I’ve kept a journal of his symptoms for the past three weeks, and mine as well. He still, three weeks later, has a 100 temperature … It’s been a roller coaster. It’s been a different roller coaster for both of us.”
