American actress Sarah Michelle Gellar revealed Wednesday on Instagram she has the coronavirus and opened up about her battle with the virus.

"I realize I've been really quiet on here. After 2 and a half years COVID finally got me. Thankfully I'm vaccinated and boosted," The Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum stated in a lengthy post.

"To people out there that say: 'It's just a cold'... maybe for some it is. But for this (relatively) young fit person, who has struggled with asthma and lung issues her entire life, that is not my experience," Gellar noted.

She added: "Even with therapeutics and all my protocols, it's been very tough. I know I'm on the road to recovery but it's certainly not been an easy road. I'll be back soon (hopefully with super antibodies... even if just for a bit),".

Gellar concluded with a quote from a friend, saying, "I will wear a mask in my shower if it means I don't get this again."

The actress' post was flooded with wishes for a speedy recovery including from Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, and Buffy's Charisma Carpenter.

Gellar has been married to actor Freddie Prinze Jr. for 20 years. They are parents to two children: Charlotte, 12, and Rocky, 9.

Last year, Gellar discussed the impact of the coronavirus and the lockdown have had on women and mothers. She talked about feeling like she lost herself at times during the shutdown.

She also spoke about helping her kids re-adjust when pandemic restrictions were lifted and also shared the positives that came from it, including having "pretty much every meal with my family, which is something that never happened before. With my kids, I got an extra year of time with them where we really spent quality time, not just shuttling here or there."
