Now we have proof, if these hilarious quarantine pregnancy announcements on Instagram are anything to go by.

They did not stay 1.5 metres apart

Netflix and chill?

2020 may have gotten off to a bad start (and continues to bring us plenty of bad news), but Instagram user Sarah Cottington most certainly has found something to smile about. "2020 has been a whirlwind and rollercoaster for us all but I hope everyone can find something to be grateful for in this second half of the year. I know I'll be cherishing every new moment of motherhood with this little one and welcoming all the changes with open arms and an open heart ❤️Excited for this new adventure!"

While the rest of us got fat

With gyms closed and nowhere to go, many of us were making frequent trips to the snack cupboard and gaining larger love handles. Not Devine Hernandez. "I have dreamt & prayed for this very moment since God restored my view on marriage & family. Enrique & I are so excited to love & raise this baby up to know the God that has been so good to us. . . . I love this little baby growing inside of my womb with my WHOLE life & we cannot wait to meet our little one & end this crazy year with a BANG!"
