Model/actress Sabrina Dhowre Elba has shared that she has been diagnosed with COVID-19 on Saturday during a Facetime on Winfrey’s Oprah Talks COVID-19 series on Apple TV+.
Winfrey asked Dhowre about whether she would be tested, and the actress, who is married to star Idris Elba, revealed that she had already been tested.
“Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive. I’m not surprised. As soon as I heard that Idris was potentially exposed I was on my way anyway and I wanted to be with him. I think that’s an instinct as a wife you just want to go and take care. We didn’t change the way we interacted,” she explained.
Now that’s love.
Dhowre continued, “I could have made a decision to put myself in a separate room or maybe stay away. I’m sure people are making those decisions, they’re tough decisions to make. But I made the decision to want to be with him and still touch him.”
Last week Elba revealed that he and Dhowre had taken a “calculated risk” by self-quarantining together after he was diagnosed with the virus.
“It was weird because people were criticizing her for being next to me (in the video where he announced he had coronavirus) and that was bananas,” he said. “I think that took a little bit of a mental strain on both of us. We didn’t expect that.”
