During an interview with "Today" on Friday, Leslie gave an update on how he is doing his best to keep his wife Nicolette Robinson, who is pregnant with their second child, and their 3-year-old daughter Lucy safe.
"First, Ellen was super sweet, and everything was as safe as we thought it could be the day we were in the studio," the Tony-winning actor said. "And the next day, we found out that she tested positive. So first and foremost, I hope Ellen is well. I haven't spoken to her. Obviously, I hope she's doing OK."
Leslie andNicolette, who have been married since 2012, announced they were expecting a boy back in November.
"The virus can affect pregnant ladies differently, so anywhere, we're doing our best," he said on Friday's interview. "I've got my mask in the house. You know, I'm double-masking in the house."
Nicolette also spoke with "Today" last month about being pregnant during a pandemic.
"This pregnancy is really different from my last one, because he's here and we get to share this together as a family," she explained. "It's been a real silver lining to having to be home right now."
