Hostin announced that Emmanuel’s parents died from complications of coronavirus over the holiday break.
“After speaking with [my husband], he felt that from a public health standpoint it was very important for me to share that we are deeply saddened that Manny lost both of his parents over the holiday.
“He lost his father on Dec. 28 and he lost his mother on New Year’s Day, both to COVID,” Hostin said.
“They were both physicians and they were both very careful. They didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving with us because we all decided it wasn’t safe.
“And after a lot of contact tracing, we still don’t know how they contracted this virus. We want to thank the doctors and nurses tht gave them such incredible care.
“They’re doing god’s work letting us FaceTime with Manny’s parents while they were passing away. Despite all of that, they didn’t make it,” she added.

The couple have two children, a son Gabriel, 18, and a daughter Paloma, 14.
