    Divine Lee and her husband Blake Go tested positive for COVID-19.

    The celebrity mom revealed in her Instagram Stories on July 16, 2020, that they had to isolate themselves from their kids Baz and Blanca for two weeks. The couple had not been out of their home in Cebu since March 14, so Divine said they likely contracted the virus from "handling everyday things from money, groceries, and all."

    At press time, Divine and Blake are "all good."

    Divine Lee made the announcement on her Instagram stories, saying she was asymptomatic and had been cleared by doctors.

    In her two-part Instagram post, Divine reflected on her 14-day quarantine and the lessons she picked up from the experience.

    Her first post began: "Dearest Baz and Blanca,

    "Realization time for mommy. You guys are tougher than I think. And with things I can't control, God is with you. I've seen this happen. Faith is a strong thing. Never lose that."

    Divine said that sickness "can be a mind game. And in any game, play to win." And playing to win, she said, means holding on to one's faith.

    "If you heard my prayers everyday. Lord wag positive. Tapos 'Naku positive si Blake'. Lord wag ako positive- Naku positive din. But see even if we don't understand. Go back to faith. Be thankful parin.

    "I just kept saying I can breathe, I am alive and I'm thankful. I kept praying and believing. The Lord only gave us mild symptoms. I’m asymptomatic while your dad kayang kaya. And Lord protected the most important people in my life - kayo! Siguro sinabi nya 'Kaya nyo yan, Divine. Let me take care of the kids.' So go back to faith."

    Life went on for Divine even though she was in isolation. In her second post, Divine said she continued to manage "business, the emotions of people, medical, DOH advisories, barangay advisories, checking everyone's health in the household, pati yung next ulam, etc."

    With everything going on, Divine realized that one needs "a strong heart and strong mind" to remain focused with daily tasks. And in order to have this focus, one needs to be "inspired and motivated."

    Divine then told Baz and Blanca, "Kayo yung motivation ko." She also learned how to sort out the people "who were sincere in their texts and hindi yung nakikichismis lang. Haha!

    "...Your family and real friends will always be your fort. They will be the first to protect you and guide you. Remember that you can call them anytime for anything. Consult them for decisions."

    Lastly, Divine reiterated to Baz and Blanca the power of prayer. "The mind is a complicated thing. Marami ka maiisip. Minsan scary. Minsan malungkot. Keep your mind busy to keep those bad vibes away. And you'll always feel better if you feel like you've done something good for yourself.


    "Pray. Pray. Pray. Malaking bagay yung naniniwala kang may kakampi ka na hindi nila kaya talunin kahit ano pa ang kalaban mo. Yan ang resbak..."
