The "Slow Dancing" singers reflected on growing older and the need to take care of their parents as they age.
"It’s hard to come to terms with, but as we get older it’s our turn to take care of our parents when they won’t/can’t take care of themselves," they continued. "A lot of times they want to hide their suffering from us because they think it’s a burden, when really it’s our duty to step in."
Earlier this week, Bachelor in Paradise alum Kevin Wendt revealed that his 1-month-old son, Auggy, was also hospitalized after testing positive for the coronavirus and getting a fever.
"Our family has covid, and it's not taking it easy on any of us," Wendt shared on Instagram. "Astrid had a terrible flu followed by Auggy getting a fever, which after being tested is covid as well."
He added that seeing his baby "sick and in pain at 4 weeks old breaks our hearts." "Because of the new variant and the unknown around transmission, I've been staying clear of my little man until my symptoms are gone," Wendt wrote.
The reality star's news came after Married at First Sight star Jamie Otis revealed she was in "absolute shock" after finding out her and Doug Hehner's 19-month-old son, Hendrix, also tested positive for COVID-19.
