Kim Kardashian West is beginning to open up about her family’s ‘scary’ experience with COVID-19.
The media personality, 39, made this known during an interview with GRAZIA that her husband, Kanye West, was diagnosed with the coronavirus mid-March at the onset of the pandemic. She added that she had the formidable task of caring for her ailing husband.
“Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on,” Mrs West told the outlet for her cover story. “It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help.” (The couple shares four children: daughter North, 7; son Saint, 4; daughter Chicago, 2; and son Psalm, 16 months.)
Mrs. West said her husband was sick “during the time that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson announced that they had Covid.” Hanks and Wilson announced on March 11th that they were hospitalized in Queensland, Australia, with the coronavirus, becoming the first major celebrities to test positive for the virus.
“I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown,” Kardashian West added. “Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.” – Kanye West first revealed that he had COVID-19 in July during an interview with Forbes.
