The “Lord of the Rings” star Liv Tyler revealed Saturday on Instagram that had contracted Coronavirus on New Year’s Eve.
After two weeks in isolation, the 43-year-old took to Instagram to share her joy in reuniting with her children, who did not contract the deadly virus.
“Reunited with my loves … what a wild 2 weeks 🙈🦠🧤😷. I tested positive for covid 19 on New Year’s Eve day. S–t, I had made it all the way through 2020 keeping myself and my family safe. Doing everything I could to protect my wolf pack and follow the rules to protect others. Suddenly on The morn of the last day of 2020… boom it took me down,” Tyler revealed.
“Luckily the rest of my family and bubble were negative 🙏🏽,” she confirmed.
Tyler shares two young children — son Sailor, 5, and daughter Lula, 4 — with Dave Gardner. She also has a teenage son, Milo, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Royston Langdon.
She also disclosed the tool the virus had on both her physical and mental health.
“It comes on fast, like a locomotive. Owchie. With it Feelings of fear, shame, and guilt swirling through you, who could you have gotten it from, and who could you have infected…Terrifying,”.
She pointed out that there are so many strange elements to this sickness, adding that it effects everyone so completely differently.
Tyler added that she was so lucky and had light coronavirus symptoms, noting: “It floored me for 10 days in my bed. There is the physical aspects but also emotional and psychological ones too,”.
She continued: “It F’s with your body and mind equally. Every day different. Being isolated in a room alone for 10 days is trippy to say the least. Waking up to news of our capital being under attack. Was it real or the twilight zone? Ohhh no it was real!!! 😱 the first days of 2021 have been scary for everyone in the world. The unknown so great.”
She added: “I missed My babies beyond but they visited my window and called up to me and I watch them play outside. Such a gift. They sent little messages and drawings under my door. Reminders of what’s on the other side. What to get better for. I am so grateful to be through it and spent my days alone praying and beaming love to all who are effected and suffering from this.”
