COVID-19 seemed to have made its way into the family of rock legend, Jon Bon Jovi, with his son, Jacob suffering a mild form of the virus, a new report states.


Since COVID-19 crossed the shores of China, into the rest of the world, a lot of celebrities have tested positive for it. But for rock legend, Jon Bon Jovi, the virus bypassed him to his son, Jacob, 17.

In a video interview with Entertainment Tonight, the rock star revealed that the teenager had a "mild form" of the virus. Jacob had the intestinal kind and had to self-isolate from the rest of the family.

Bon Jovi informed the news outlet that he and his family had been isolated for fifteen days. He said,

"The whole family is together. All the kids are here with us."

The singer added that his wife, Dorothea, created the quarantine zone for Jacob. The teenager was kept in the laundry room, and no one could go in without gloves and a mask.



Bon Jovi's son was kept there until he stopped being symptomatic. The singer also pointed out that a private doctor visited their home and had a look at the teenager.

The siblings lived a sheltered life, with their mother making sure that life at home was distinct from their father's fame.

The dad-of-four admitted that Jacob didn't test positive for the coronavirus. He noted it was difficult to get his son checked, but they were convinced it was COVID-19 because some guests in their home tested positive.



The singer is happy his son is healthy and is looking forward to life after the virus. One of the things Bon Jovi has his sight on, is Jacob, starting college this Fall.

The two shared the news in separate Instagram posts in February. The singer congratulated the teenager, while the latter joked that "They" thought it was impossible.



Bon Jovi also has three children with Dorothea, asides from Jacob. The couple shares a 26-year-old daughter, Stephanie, and sons, Jesse, 25, and Romeo, 15.

The siblings lived a sheltered life, with their mother making sure that life at home was distinct from their father's fame. The mom-of-four told People in 2016 that she had to draw the line so that the children could have a "normal" life.

Bon Jovi and Dorothea met as teenagers in high school and have been together since. They've been married for three decades, and believe their marriage is successful because they grew together.

The two always put their children first and make time for them. When Bon Jovi is not home with his family, he is making great music and has one in the works with Prince Harry.
