Rita Wilson and her husband Tom Hanks are currently in quarantine after they tested positive to coronavirus, and she took to Instagram to post a video on how she is spending time in isolation. 


Since the announcement of their positive test for COVID-19, actor Tom Hanks and his wife have been updating their followers about their time in isolation, and Rita Wilson kept up with that trend recently. 

The singer-songwriter shared a video on Sunday that showed her rapping to the 1992 song, "Hip Hop Hooray" by Naughty by Nature, showing that she is finding ways to have fun even while in isolation.

The video was also comical, with Rita first acting like she was reading the sci-fi novel, "Ender's Game," before jumping in on the beat of the track and rapping along. She got all her lines perfect in the 4-minute video, a perfect performance one would say. 

In the clip, the "Now and Then" actress was wearing a silky black shirt and tied a blue bandana over her hair. In her caption to the post, she wrote: 

"Quarantine Stir Crazy See it to believe it." 


Tom Hanks and his wife announced their positive test for COVID-19 on March 11, with the "Forrest Gump" actor posting the news on his Instagram page. 

Since then, they have been in quarantine and were previously at Queensland Hospital before being discharged last week. They are now at a rented apartment in Australia. 

Hanks revealed that both of them were improving in their health a week and a half since they were diagnosed.


Tom Hanks didn't appear in Rita's video, but he looked to be somewhere in the background listening and probably bopping his head during her amazing rap performance. 

While performing, Rita looked off the camera at some point and smiled at someone while grooving to the song. That person would most likely be her husband. 

The actor would be most glad to have his wife in such a happy and groovy mood. One would expect him to have been a little worried about their diagnosis, but the couple has been nothing short of positive since going public about it. 


They are recovering with each passing day, and in an update post on Twitter, Hanks revealed that both of them were improving in their health, a week and a half since they were diagnosed. 

The actor also urged people to maintain social distancing to help reduce the spread of the virus, as the world continues its fight against the disease. 


Hanks advised people to take care of one another, help where they could, and also endeavor to give up some comforts, adding that with time, the situation would pass.
