"Today" co-host Dylan Dreyer opened up in an exclusive chat about how her family battled the novel Coronavirus.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

Dreyer, who earlier in the year welcomed a baby boy, Oliver, explained that it had all started with her waking up with a 102°C temperature. She feared she got the virus, but after getting tested, the celeb mom found out it was mastitis. She told People:

"...But then I went on antibiotics for the mastitis because that's what my doctor suggested, and I was totally fine."

However, after Dylan became well, her hubby, Brian Fichera, developed a temperature and started showing symptoms of the novel Coronavirus. At that point, the couple cleared their son, Calvin's room, so that Fichera could occupy the space and self-quarantine.

DREYER ROSE TO THE OCCASION

All the happenings must have been overwhelming for the "Earth Odyssey with Dylan Dreyer" anchor, but she didn't let it weigh her down. The mom of two took charge of taking care of her kids and also preparing meals for her spouse who self-Isolated all the while.

Being in close contact with Fichera, Dreyer lost her sense of smell and taste, which are common symptoms of COVID-19. Her baby son was also sick for three weeks. While speaking, the socialite added: "We think coronavirus went through our whole house."

FICHERA TALKS ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE 

More than anything, the Dreyer-Fichera household is grateful that the virus ran its course, and every member of the family is fine. On an episode of Today's Third Hour show, Brian sat with his wife to talk about his experience.

The 33-year-old explained that it was "hairy" and "scary." Also, on Instagram, Fichera shared a lengthy post where he detailed events that led up to his eventual recovery. The socialite wrote about COVID-19:

"...When it hits hard, you can't move, and it feels like you're snorkeling through a cocktail straw…"

IT'S A REALITY CHECK 

Amid caring for her little sons, being there for her infected spouse, and trying to practice safety, the weather expert admitted that it was "a reality check."

However, things are back to normal or almost normal because the couple is still dealing with a "lot of parenting" since schools are closed, and they have no babysitter around.

In January, Dylan Dreyer and Brian Fichera became second-time parents to their now 4-months-son, Oliver George Fichera. 

After having her baby, Dreyer excitedly shared the news to her "Today" co-hosts during her Friday call-in. Oliver joined big brother, Calvin Bradley, who is three years old.
