Bad month: Kevin Connolly had some bad news to share on Friday. The Entourage vet, 47, shared on the podcast Victory The Podcast that his daughter Kennedy Cruz, aged six weeks, is sick with COVID-19
Poor child: ‘It’s been hard. It’s hard when your kid is sick, you know? Because there’s really nothing you can do,’ the actor shared with his former co-star Kevin Dillion as well as Doug Ellin before sharing he has COVID as well even though he had been vaccinated.
In the state of California, children have to be age 12 and up to get vaccinated.
He shares the little girl – who was born in early June – with actress Zulay Henao, 42.
The TV staple said that it has been ‘a rough week.’ But things are looking up.
‘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,’ said the ex of Nicky Hilton.
Kevin also came down with COVID and said the symptoms were ‘brutal’ but it could have been much worse if he had not been vaccinated.

His partner has not gotten COVID yet even though she is caring for both Kevin and Kennedy.
Connolly and Henao showed off a glimpse of their baby girl on her Instagram Story in early June as she admitted she’d been ‘overwhelmed’ with knowing what were the right items to buy for her newborn.
Praising DockATot for their baby lounger, she wrote: ‘Thank you @dockatot As a 1st time mom I was so overwhelmed making sure I got everything right for her.

BABIES WITH COVID
Babies under age one might be at higher risk of severe illness with COVID-19 than older children. This is likely due to their immature immune systems and smaller airways, which make them more likely to develop breathing issues with respiratory virus infections.
Newborns can become infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 during childbirth or by exposure to sick caregivers after delivery.
If you have COVID-19 or are waiting for test results due to symptoms, it’s recommended during hospitalization after childbirth that you wear a cloth face mask and have clean hands when caring for your newborn. Keeping your newborn’s crib by your bed while you are in the hospital is OK, but it’s also recommended that you maintain a reasonable distance from your baby when possible.
Infants who have COVID-19 or who can’t be tested and have no symptoms might be discharged from the hospital, depending on the circumstances.

Zulay also thanked her friends for their support as she recovered from birth.
She added: ‘Postpartum life ain’t too shabby! Today’s mantra: I’m unf–kwithable. The human body is a masterpiece beyond our wildest imagination.
‘Thank you to all my friends who have reached out with the TMI info people don’t tell you about. I love you.(sic)’
In March, the star paid a touching tribute to his partner as he shared his excitement at being a dad.
Showing off one of their maternity photos, he wrote on Instagram: ‘Most importantly I want to thank @zulay_henao my life partner in crime for the GREATEST gift a guy could ever ask for…
‘I love you both more than anything in the world[heart emoji].’
The couple announced they were expecting a baby in December.
Theactress revealed then she was in her second trimester as she shared a picture of her tiny baby bump on Instagram with the caption ’18 weeks’.
Zulay previously hinted that she and Kevin were expecting a baby together, when she shared some sweet Christmas pictures.
In two of the pictures, Kevin placed his hand over his partner’s stomach, leading to pregnancy speculation.
Zulay captioned the picture: ‘Merry Christmas y Feliz Navidad from our family to yours!’
