Opening up on the latest episode of Victory The Podcast, the 47-year-old He’s Just Not That Into You star said his symptoms were “brutal” but he says that because he was fully vaccinated, they were “manageable.”
Connolly’s baby Kennedy Cruz, whom he shares with actress Zulay Henao, was born in early June.
“It’s been hard. It’s hard when your kid is sick, you know? Because there’s really nothing you can do,” Connolly told hosts Doug Ellin and Kevin Dillon.
“But she’s doing great. It’s just the congestion part, but the fever is down and we’re all back on the road to recovery.”
Connolly added that the family of three have had a “rough week” but have been able to “manage it.”
He also said that although Henao, 42, has been caring for the duo, she has not tested positive for COVID-19.
Connolly and Henao announced the arrival of their baby girl on June 9.
Sharing a photo to Instagram of his new daughter wearing a New York Islander hockey onesie, the actor wrote, “She has arrived!!! Kennedy Cruz Connolly ready to go for game 6!!!!
“Trying to explain that we need to win one of the next two games to move on is tough. She’s only a week old!! [Henao] Thanks for getting her ready for puck drop!!!”
Henao, meanwhile, shared photos of her own.
Sharing a series of images from the delivery room on her Instagram, Henao captioned her post, “Kennedy Cruz Connolly ☘️ 🇨🇴”
“The purest love you can imagine, nothing compares💕
“The realest answer I can give to hopefully answer all of your questions/dm’s: Life gives you exactly what you need every step of the way! Big cheers & amen to that!” she wrote.
“Thank you Kennedy, bringing you into this world has been the biggest honor of my life! Thank you [Connolly] @zumarste3 @lina_marcella_henao for holding me up every step of the way ❤️”
