Renée Elise Goldsberry Is An Actress. Laura Benanti’s COVID Test Goes Wrong For Pregnancy Announcement
Oops! Renée Elise Goldsberry chimed in on Laura Benanti’s latest social media post on Monday to congratulate her on… catching COVID?
Benanti made the hilarious gaffe after sharing her positive coronavirus test on Instagram after taking her daughter Ella to the New York City Ballet, writing, “Happy New Year? (I tested negative on the day of the ballet… Don’t worry, I also wore my mask to keep everyone safe!).”
However, it appears that the original Hamilton cast member mistook her fellow Broadway star’s positive pregnancy test on her feed and wrote, “AAAAAAH! Congratulations!” in a now-deleted comment, while other Broadway stars such as Kristin Chenoweth and Jessica Vosk expressed their condolences and best wishes for Benanti’s quick recovery.
On Twitter on Tuesday (Jan. 3), Goldsberry provided some amusing context for her error, writing, “Drunk scrolling on my birthday… “Wrong positive test…” with a sigh and a laughing emoji before adding, “Love you, Laura!” “You should feel better!”
Benanti, for her part, seemed intent on keeping her recovery as low-key and relaxing as possible. “Dear Laura: you don’t have to spend this quarantine writing the great American novel, or a pilot, or a play, or a song,” the Tony winner wrote on Instagram. “There is no need for you to clean and organise your basement. You are not required to categorise your email. You are under no obligation to return the thousands of unread emails in your inbox. You do not need to journal, reflect, or read challenging books. You can rest, watch TV, and read cheesy novels without being considered lazy. K?”
Goldsberry’s musical sitcom Girls5eva was officially renewed for a third season in October and will now air on Netflix after first airing on Peacock.
