His mom said he caught it from a medical professional.
American Idol star Casey Goode is back in hospital with her newborn son Maximilian after he tested positive for COVID-19.
The baby, who was only born on September 22, was rushed to ER in the early hours of Saturday morning after running a fever in the middle of the night.
"We had confirmation that he was exposed from direct contact with a medical professional who had cared for him earlier in the week," his mom, AKA Quigley, revealed on Instagram on Sunday. "This has been a total shock to us."
She went into labor at home, keen on having the baby there; but when he stopped moving, they rushed to hospital.
"When we got there, we discovered that I also had preclampsia," she explained afterwards. "My blood pressure was skyrocketing so they quickly put me on an IV of magnesium to prevent me from having a seizure."
After 12 hours of labor, he finally arrived, but with a very low heart rate that wouldn't increase.
"My OB got into the room and immediately had to vaccum him out. It got really scary at the end as he wasn't crying or moving much when he came out," she wrote.
"They took him for some tests and I only got to see him for about three seconds before he went to the NICU."
The influencer and electropop musician, then performing as Casey Carlson, finished in the top 36 of Idol's 2009 season.
