Famed comedian Sinbad’s children are offering an update on his health following the stroke he suffered last month.

On Thursday, Dec. 10, two of Sinbad’s kids, Royce and Paige Adkins, posted a video message via Instagram about the comedian’s health. Sinbad, whose real name is David Adkins, is still hospitalized, but they have admitted that he is in good spirits and on a positive road to recovery. The video also included a statement on behalf of the comedian.

“It is out of sincere love that we share Sinbad, our beloved husband and father, is recovering from a recent stroke,” the family said in a  statement. “Sinbad is a light source of love and joy for many generations.
