CNN host Chris Cuomo takes a walk on the TikTok side with his daughters after rejoining his family from the basement of their home, where he spent weeks battling COVID-19 in self-isolation.
Happy to be reunited with his family, Chris Cuomo and his two daughters, 17-year-old Bella and 11-year-old Carolina, joined the TikTok generation with a jubilant rendition of "Angeleyes" from ABBA.
In the video Bella posted to her TikTok account, Carolina sat on her lap facing the camera as the pair launched into singing the classic song while dad Chris happily joined in from the background.
The video comes shortly after Bella filmed her dad emerging from the basement of their home for the first time in three weeks after he contracted the novel coronavirus.
Announcing it to be a "huge day today in Casa Cuomo," Chris said that he had been "dreaming of the moment for weeks" as he reunited with his daughters and wife, Cristina, who recently got cleared after contracting the virus as well.
On Monday's episode of "Cuomo Prime Time," Chris noted that Cristina had proven herself to be the "stronger part" of their union after she dealt with the virus "in a fraction of the time" he had.
Chris first revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 31 in a statement he posted on social media, and wrote:
“I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills and shortness of breath.”
The CNN host then went into quarantine in their basement at home, where he continued airing "Cuomo Prime Time," which featured several video chats with his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Thankful that his wife Cristina "powered through" after contracting the virus, Chris expressed his concerns regarding passing it on to his family in his initial diagnosis reveal, as he said:
“I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!”
Chris Cuomo shared news of his wife's diagnosis on April 16 during a video chat with his brother Andrew on "Cuomo Prime Time," and said that she had lost her sense of taste and smell.
Taking everything in her stride, Cristina didn't blame Chris or get "upset" about her diagnosis, and at least their children remained virus-free after Bella stepped up to take care of the household.
