Johnson, the 48-year-old former wrestler, said on Instagram that he and his wife Lauren (35) and their two daughters, Jasmine (four years) and Tiana (two years old) had been infected about two and a half weeks ago, from “very close friends of the family.” They have no idea how they were infected.
The actor added that his family, as well as friends who contracted the virus first, were abiding by safety measures to avoid illness.
He said that the two girls only experienced “a slight sore throat in the first two days” and then their condition improved, but Johnson and his wife made a “difficult journey.”
Johnson has starred in films such as “Jumanji” and “The Mummy Returns”, and has become one of Hollywood’s highest-paid and commercially successful stars. He also participated in the HBO series (Ballers).
