Upstairs bathroom leaking damaging first floor ceiling

Upstairs bathroom1 tile shower leaking on family room ceiling below. Heard water sounds while the shower was
being used. Hole in the ceiling of the faimly room appeared. We started using upstairs bathroom2 for showers
and baths. I've noticed that the bedroom carpeting next to bathroom2 is soaking wet after showers or baths are
taken. Also the kitchen ceiling below bathroom2 is showing damage. The carpeting that is wet is located
on the other side of the wall from the foot of the tub, opposite end of the tub where the drain is.
It is a porcelian tub with tile surround. I'm wondering if these two leak problems are one big one or just two
little ones happening at the same time. Can you give me some advice on how to find and fix the problem?
