Oprah Winfrey has reunited with Stedman Graham.
The 66-year-old media mogul's partner had been staying in their guesthouse for two weeks since returning from a work trip as a precautionary measure because she is still not fully recovered from pneumonia and didn't want to risk catching coronavirus, but now the incubation period for the virus is over, her long-term companion has been welcomed back into their home.
In a video posted on the O, The Oprah Winfrey Magazine Instagram account, Stedman was greeted by Oprah with a hug while two former students from the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls sang for them.
Oprah joked: "I bet you appreciate us more now."
Stedman replied: "I appreciated you before, honey."
The post was captioned: "After 14 days of quarantining separately, @oprah & @stedmangraham have finally reunited--with a welcome song from former OWLAG students @thando_d and Sade! We wonder what Lady O made for dinner for her man's return. Remember to keep staying safer at home y'all! (sic)"
Oprah revealed last month that she and her partner were living separately as a precautionary measure.
She said on Instagram: "Stedman is at the guest house. You all know I had pneumonia late last year and you can still hear the raspiness in my throat sometimes.
"And I just got off antibiotics last week and so Stedman was late to the party. Stedman didn't arrive from Chicago until Thursday and he was speaking in St. Louis on Saturday and he's been on planes."
Oprah had insisted it was important to take action before Stedman returned home from his trip.
She said: "[He] was like, 'What's the procedure for coming home?' And I was like, 'You ain't coming in here and sleeping in my bed. It doesn't work that way... Social distancing doesn't mean you can go sleep in a bed with someone after you got off American Airlines.' We can not play those games."
The couple have worked out a system which sees Oprah leave meals for Stedman and he's happy to comply if he means the 'Wrinkle in Time' star stays "safe".
She explained: "I leave food on the doorstep...He's happy to have me safe. We just take him dinner and we take him breakfast."
