"The Masked Singer" winner Wayne Brady recently revealed that he's self-isolating with his daughter, Maile, his ex-wife, Mandie Taketa, and her boyfriend, Jason.
"We quarantine between both of our homes and I've got a big backyard and lots of land so we both share this land and this space," Brady told Access Hollywood.
"So Mandie, her boyfriend Jason, my daughter Maile, we are a family," the actor and TV host added. "We are like this nuclear family."
