The Hamilton star is a visitor on the TODAY present on Friday, Dec. 18, and in a preview clip from the episode, he informed hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager that he’s maintaining his distance from pregnant spouse Nicolette Robinson and 3-year-old daughter Lucille in the intervening time. Leslie appeared on Ellen DeGeneres‘ speak present on Dec. 9, someday earlier than she introduced that she had tested positive for COVID-19.
As Hoda identified within the footage that’s under, the Tony winner was the final visitor who was bodily on the set with Ellen earlier than her prognosis.
“First, Ellen was tremendous candy, and the whole lot was as protected as we thought it might be the day we had been within the studio,” he mentioned. “And the following day, we came upon that she examined optimistic. So initially, I hope Ellen is effectively. I have never spoken to her. Clearly, I hope she’s doing OK.”
