Teddi revealed the news on Monday’s episode of her podcast Teddi Tea Pod.

“A while back I had COVID and I didn’t really talk about it because I was just really focused on making sure I was healthy and my family was healthy,” she said.

“I was vaccinated and my husband was not, which he has since realized what a huge mistake that was,” Teddi added.

“At first he tested positive, so he was quarantined. Then I got a feeling, so I quarantined myself in another room as well until I finally tested positive.”

The star went on to say that since they “both had COVID”, they “had to quarantine from our family, and actually from each other.”

Because she was vaccinated and her husband was not, the duo had very different symptoms.

“I got through it faster,” she said, adding that it was about six days of symptoms for her.

Meanwhile, Edwin had been ill for about 15 days and suffered from more severe symptoms.

“Edwin, he was super weak, and it was so many different things and it was a really great reminder of how important it is, you know, to get vaccinated.”

Teddi and Edwin are parents to three children together: Slate, eight, Cruz, six, and Dove, one.

She explained that it was “extremely difficult” not to be around her children in quarantine, but that she was “worried about giving it to them, especially since Slate has an autoimmune disease.”

Teddi said she still has vertigo, which is a symptom of the disease: “I would feel like I was lying on a waterbed and if I got up I would get dizzy. And it kind of stuck with me, even post-COVID, and it kept happening.”

Last week, the star shared a photo of herself after she fell and passed out during an episode of Dizziness, which revealed she cut her lip and got a black eye.

She had said that after that “scary” incident, she “felt very foggy and just not like myself since,” adding that she “will be diligent in wanting to understand why it happened.”
