Speaking to fans during an Instagram live stream, the 66-year-old media mogul revealed the pair decided he should move out of the main house and into their guest quarters as a precaution.

Oprah reminded her followers that she had pneumonia late last year and you can still hear the raspiness in her throat sometimes as she just got off antibiotics last week.

Stedman had been on airplanes so it was his decision to self-isolate.

"He's just happy to have me safe," Oprah says.
