INDIANAPOLIS — Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds posted on social media Friday night that he and his family are recovering after testing positive for COVID-19.

Along with a caption saying, "Stay Home, Stay Safe," Edmonds, an Indianapolis native who turned 62 Friday, thanked everyone for their birthday wishes and said he feels blessed to celebrate another birthday as he recovers from the coronavirus.

"I tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, as did my family. It's an incredibly scary thing to go through, my friends," Edmonds posted on Instagram and Twitter. "I'm happy to report we have now tested negative and are on our way back to full health."

Edmonds, a North Central High School alum, had a 17-mile stretch of Interstate 65 through Indianapolis renamed in his honor in 1999.
