Brian Dowling’s husband Arthur Gourounlian is self isolating with RTE Chef Donal Skehan’s family upon their return from LA in Sutton Co. Dublin, while Brian is isolating in Co. Kildare with his sister, nephew and two nieces only one hour apart from each other!
The couple have not seen each other in over three months as Brian had returned back to Ireland early to appear on Dancing with the stars Ireland while Arthur stayed in LA to pack up and prepare their move back to Brians home country Ireland after two years of living in Los Angles California.
The couple will finally be reunited once the choreographer has completed his two week isolation period.
Arthur was due to come home earlier, however, his flight was delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Donal Skehan took to instgram to share how thankful he is to have Arthur staying with them.The RTE chef thanked the choreographer for all of his help with the kids during their journey, saying he has “kept them going” during the difficult transition.
He wrote: “Smiling through the absolute chaos, thankfully everything going to plan so far.
“Heartbroken to be leaving our home of 4 years here in LA in such a rush move on the advice of the consulate, but so unbelievably grateful to be close to family (albeit through a window) in this madness and be able to get home to Ireland.
“The amount of luggage would make you cry and all we’re dreaming of now is a proper Irish cuppa in the new house. Huge thank you to friends, family and you guys for all the messages, support, offers to help and gestures, we really appreciate it.
“Also we literally could not have done this without the machine that is @gourounlian who has held babies, moved furniture and kept us going with his non stop positivity. Keep safe and we’ll try do the same, Donal, Sofie, Noah & Oliver xx
