Though America is decidedly “trippin’” over Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson’s Coronavirus diagnosis, their eldest son, Chet (known for his, uh, eccentricity) assures us that his parents are “not even that sick.”

In an intimate, shirtless video posted to his Instagram (note: shirtless appears to be his default state of dress on the ‘gram), Chet, 29, opened up about ma and pa’s health.

“Wassup everyone. Yeah, it’s true, my parents got Coronavirus. Crazy,” Hanks began. “They're both down in Australia right now 'cause my dad was shooting a movie down there. I just got off the phone with them. They both are fine. They're not even that sick. They're not worried about it. They're not trippin' but they're going through the necessary health precautions obviously. I don't think it's anything to be too worried about. I appreciate everyone's concern and the well wishes. I think it's all going to be alright. I appreciate it. Everybody stay safe out there. Much love."

Tom’s eldest son, Colin, shared a statement regarding his father and stepmother as well, writing, “We are so grateful for the outpouring of support from everyone. My parents are receiving excellent care in Australia and are doing well (and in good spirits) given the circumstances. Despite the fact that I’m in LA and haven’t seen them in over three weeks, we have been in constant contact and am confident that they will make a full recovery.”
