Quarantine Babies Born In 2020 Hug For First Time

A pair of “quarantine babies” born in 2020 have gone viral after their parents shared a video of them being able to hug for the first time. Were it not for the COVID-19 pandemic, 13-month-old Maxwelle and six-month-old Keanu would have spent a lot of time together, their parents said. But with Maxwelle’s family having a member who is immunocompromised, she, like many young children across America, was restricted to a home bubble. That all changed, however, on May 13, when the pair met at their older siblings’ elementary school in Argyle, Texas. Maxwelle’s parents, Sydney and Aaron Lopez, are extremely close to Keanu’s parents, Emily and Jesse Jacobs. Aaron was hoping to get a long-awaited photo of the two babies together - but they soon got a much cuter moment than they bargained for. Maxwelle, dressed in brown, couldn’t stop hugging Keanu, and vice versa. Sydney thought Maxwelle might be infatuated by Keanu because of his blue eyes, as all of the Lopez’s have dark eyes.
