“Mommy and Daddy weren’t two meters apart!” Couples who’ve come up with ‘quarantine babies’ poke fun at hilarious pregnancy announcements
- Many couples have fathered babies since the U.S. first entered a closed state in March
- Many are now sharing their pregnancy news on social media with funny announcements
- They have used letter boards and onesies with jokes about not socially distancing themselves and using the ‘wrong protection’
- Others made tears about ‘positive testing’ and ‘quarantine and chilling’
Quarantine isn’t good for many things – shopping, eating in restaurants, seeing friends, for example – but it’s especially excellent for one thing: making babies.
And it seems that in the nearly four months since COVID-19 shut down large parts of the US, quite a few couples came up with a fun way to keep busy.
Now these couples are announcing their pregnancy to the world, and they’ve found smart and timely ways to spread the news.
In corona virus-themed pregnancy announcements, social parents joke about their social distance, ‘test positive’ for something more joyful than the virus, and use only masks and gloves for ‘protection.’
Funny moms and dads-to-be use letter boards and onesies to announce the results of their quarantine and relax, predicting quite a few new babies to be born in December and January.
