During an Instagram live interview on Thursday with the Washington Post, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that he became very emotional while talking to his daughters on Zoom to celebrate his 80th birthday.
"I was just on a Zoom call with the girls, it was very moving. I mean, I think I lost about a liter of fluid in tears, to be honest with you, just hearing their expressions of love and concern for me," Fauci said.
"But we ended it on a happy note because we know that sooner or later, very likely sooner, as we get into 2021 and things get better and vaccines help us, that this time next year, that we'll be back again with the Fauci family celebrating Christmas Eve and my birthday for my 81st birthday," he added.
Fauci has three daughters, who are in their late 20s and 30s, and last night he told CNN that this is the first time he has spent the holidays without them since they were born.
