Both America's dad Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, have tested positive for the new coronavirus.
While working on a new movie in Australia, Hanks and Wilson caught the virus and let fans know through social media. The two are taking the next necessary steps to get healthy and prevent the spread of the virus. Their son, Chet Hanks, also sent his Instagram followers a message confirming his parents' diagnosis and letting everyone know he's not too worried.
Many celebrities and fans are coming forward expressing support and well wishes for the couple. People like Ellen DeGeneres, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Toy Story costar Tim Allen tweeted messages to the family.
Wilson responded to her son's words of support.
Wilson is clearly feeling well enough to get on Instagram and responded to her son's video, "Love you angel." Tom Hanks' other son, actor Colin Lewes Hanks, tweeted, "My parents are receiving excellent care in Australia and are doing well (and in good spirits) given the circumstances."
