"I am super calm, healthy, content and have been self-isolating with my family, even before the government started advising pregnant women to. So please don't worry. We are being diligent about our health and safety but keeping busy from home, going about our lives and business like normal." The expectant mother concluded: "Ro and I are super excited about our pending arrival and feel very blessed to hopefully be meeting our little girl soon despite the situation. I won’t deny it’s a strange time, a little scary and certainly inconvenient, but none of that really matters... not in comparison to what other people are going through."
