Jennifer Aydin Says Her Father & Daughter Gabby Contracted Coronavirus Also

Earlier this month, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jennifer Aydin revealed that she had tested positive for coronavirus. She revealed that she got a hold of a coronavirus test thanks to her husband Bill Aydin, a plastic surgeon. After that reveal, the couple faced some backlash for their access to a coronavirus test.

Bill explained that he did more than just cosmetic procedures as a plastic surgeon and that he had been working in the hospital. Jennifer and Bill have five children and Jennifer’s father had been staying with her. Unfortunately, Jennifer found out that her dad and one of her kid’s also contracted coronavirus.

Jennifer broke the news in an interview with HollywoodLife. Jennifer shared, “My dad had had it after. I didn’t really tell anybody that…he was hospitalized on Friday.” The Housewife elaborated, “My dad was staying with me…I like having my dad with me. It just makes everything better.”

Jennifer noted that her dad moved to her sister’s house after Jennifer’s diagnosis, but it was too late. He already contracted the virus.  Jennifer shared,”[He had] no fever. My father’s symptoms were actually profuse vomiting.”

She continued, “He was vomiting for about 3 days straight until finally, my sister said he was complaining about chest pain, so I was like, ‘Well, we can’t avoid the hospital if he’s complaining about chest pain.’ So we brought him in and sure enough he tested positive, but again, thank God, no respiratory problems.” Now, he’s out of the hospital and back at Jennifer’s house.

Jennifer also shared, “Gabby was only having symptoms of not having taste and smell, but that’s back for her.” Thankfully, Jennifer noted, “The [other] kids are all fine.”

As far as Jennifer herself goes, she shared, “I feel good as new…I feel great. I feel almost dangerously invincible now and now I’m betting on the theory because I’m invincible now that once you have it you’re immune to it because.”
