She said, “‘I’m not surprised, as soon as I heard that Idris was potentially exposed. I was on my way anyway and I wanted to be with him, I think that’s an instinct as a wife you just want to go and take care.”. Sabrina mentioned that people make tough decisions in these times and stay away from each other but she wanted to be with her husband to take care of him. “We didn’t change the way we interacted, I could have made a decision to put myself in a separate room or maybe stay away and I’m sure people are making those decisions, they’re tough decisions to make. But I made the decision to want to be with him and still touch him,” she said. Also Read - From Tom Hanks To Kanika Kapoor, These Celebs Have Tested Positive For Coronavirus, Check Out The List
