New Day Weekend anchor and HLN correspondent Christi Paul has been staying home and nursing her husband while he battles COVID, she revealed on Instagram. Her co-anchor, Victor Blackwell, has been awaiting the results of his COVID test for twelve days. “I’m still waiting for results,” he said.
“Husband is positive with covid19. Girls & I are all negative,” Paul wrote on Instagram. “Haven’t been able to hold his hand or kiss his forehead . . . We all miss his presence at the dinner table, his laughter & his joshing us.”
Paul concluded, “But we know God gives us His strength when we’re weak & His wisdom when we’re confused & drained. This virus makes no sense. The testing, the paradigm, the transmission… I swear it’s all still a crapshoot.”
When she responded to a comment and offered an update, she said, “He’s actually a little worse today but it’s part of the ups & downs. He’s not in the hospital on a ventilator so I’ll take this. And I pray for everyone who is because this is rough.”

#SundayReminder that it all doesn’t depend on you. This popped into my head this morning as I feel the weight. Husband is positive with #covid19 Girls & I are all negative. For that I’m grateful bc I’m able to take care of him. Haven’t been able to hold his hand or kiss his forehead in 9 days though. We all miss his presence at the dinner table, his laughter & his joshing us. When I told Sadie he tested positive she asked “Is he gonna die?” I hate that her mind even went there. But we know God gives us His strength when we’re weak & His wisdom when we’re confused & drained. This virus makes no sense. The testing, the paradigm, the transmission…I swear it’s all still a crapshoot. There’s so much we don’t know. But I will rest on #Faith & #God Thank you to all of you for your encouragement, prayers & sweet words. Please never doubt the strength your simple words give to people. And I, for one, am eternally grateful. #ThankYou #Grateful #Family #LoveLikeNoOther #FaithOverFear #Proverbs #Bible #Wisdom #Prayer #Hope #Coronavirus
