Saab Magalona expressed her longing for her husband Jim Bacarro and their kids, Pancho and Vito, as she revealed that she is currently in isolation after contracting COVID-19.

Magalona disclosed this as she gave an account of her bout with the disease through her Instagram page on Friday, April 7.


“I was able to dodge COVID for over 3 years and it finally got me. Thankfully, everyone else at home is healthy!” she said.


“I’m on day 3 since I tested positive and the headaches have been wild especially in the mornings. Thankful for the video calls with my boys although it’s hard not to cry,” she continued.

Magalona lamented how her condition has been keeping her from spending time with her kids, who she only gets to talk to through video calls. She then thanked their “girls” at home for taking care of Pancho and Vito while she is in isolation.

“Despite the vomiting and splitting headaches, the most difficult part of this is being away from my boys and hearing them cry when I have to say goodbye on our video calls,” she stated.

“Thankful that Jim is such a sweetheart and my biggest cheerleader,” she said, noting that Bacarro is also isolated from their kids. “Can’t wait to hug you.”
