We've just learned who the first high-profile celebrity to contract coronavirus is — and people couldn't be more shook.

Tom Hanks, America's stepdad who is honestly more like a biological dad because he's literally been there for us since we were kids no matter what, has tested positive for COVID-19 along with his wife, the equally iconic Rita Wilson. The pair are in Australia while Hanks shoots a biopic about Elvis Presley.

A few people on the set of the film have tested positive for the virus. From BBC News:

"All the people who were on set have gone home and self-quarantined," said Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate.

The studio behind the film, Warner Bros, said it was "working closely with the appropriate Australian health agencies to identify and contact anyone" who may have come into direct contact with the star.

Hanks posted on his Instagram about the diagnosis:
