Iya Villania, in one of her recent posts on Instagram, expressed how deeply touched she was by what her son said after moving into the “COVID ward” of their home.
The TV host and her husband, Drew Arellano, were found to be COVID positive several days ago and recently, their son, Primo, also tested positive for the disease.
When he entered their home’s COVID ward, Primo expressed gladness on seeing his mom.

While Iya was touched by what her son said, she was very much worried about him.
“I’m not so happy love, coz that means you’re sick!” Iya told her son.
Iya was thankful, however, that her condition has greatly improved and very much recovered after being found positive.
“Oh to be a mother. I’m glad I’ve pretty much recovered to be able to care for these monkeys,” she jokingly wrote in her IG post.
She then imparted an advise for families going through the same situation as them.
“Tonight should be interesting Mamas! Papas! Make sure you have everything ready for the night,” Iya said.
The TV host said they should be ready with medicines, extra clothes, and many other essential things.
“Meds, medicine cups or syringes, extra clothes (in case of vomit), nebulizer, necessary nebules, wet/cold towel, thermometer, oximeter, water and a lamp!” she said.
Iya revealed families like hers may not need all those things but it’s better to be prepared.
“You might not need it but you’re better to be prepared than trying to find all of that in the middle of the night. Especially if you’re isolated and have limited access to things around the house. Get ready for battle,” Iya wrote.
Iya Villania-Arellano is a Filipino-Australian host and actress who has been notably known for her work as a VJ in Myx. She tied the knot with host Drew Arellano back in 2014 and has had 3 children with the Kapuso host since then.
Iya and Drew are currently isolating away from the rest of their household after testing positive. On Instagram, the celebrity mom posted a lengthy caption about their situation in "Casa Arellano." According to Iya, it broke her heart to see their daughter, Alana, cry without being able to comfort her. Despite the situation, Iya tried to lighten the mood by giving a tip to other "mamas and papas" going through the same thing.
Early this month, the couple uploaded a gender reveal video for their baby number 4. The celebrity family announced that baby number 4 will be another baby boy. The Kapuso host found out about her baby’s gender after taking a Non-Invasive Prenatal Test. They also revealed in the video that Iya will give birth around June.
