The pandemic may have changed just about everything we call normal, but having babies is not one of them as the hashtags #quarantinebaby, #covidbaby and #coronababy continue to fill up social media.
And just like last year’s proud parents-to-be who ‘failed’ at physical distancing and wanted everyone to know, these moms and dads couldn’t wait to show off their bundles of joy, come hell or hard lockdown.
From posts that show the sweet bliss of new life to those reminding us of the realities of welcoming a child during the scariest of times, here’s a look at babies born “Straight outta quarantine”.
Ringing in the new year like….
‘I’m a coronial’
‘The best gift of our lives’
‘Our perfect bundle of joy’
Covid baby love
‘Straight outta quarantine’
‘Little Quarantine Baby’
‘Mommy and Daddy keep telling me I’m a miracle’
