Adorable moment two ‘quarantine babies’ hug each other for the first time – and don’t want to let go
- Baby Maxwelle and Keanu finally met near their homes in Texas this month
- Maxwelle, 13 months, and Keanu, six months, said hello in the sweetest way
- The pair were both born while the world was in lockdown due to coronavirus
This is the moment two babies born during lockdown met for the first time and greeted each other in the most heartwarming way.
Had the world not gone into lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic, 13-month-old Maxwelle and baby Keanu, six months, would have met much earlier.
But little Maxwelle had to isolate at home in Texas as she has a family member who is immunocompromised.
However, on May 13, the pair finally met with their parents Sydney and Aaron Lopez, and Emily and Jesse Jacobs in tow.
The families were hoping to capture a sweet photograph of the babies together, but they all got much more than they bargained for when the two cuddled and refused to let each other go.
Sydney, Maxwelle’s mother, said the moment made her think of the U2 song ‘Sweetest Thing’ which includes the line: ‘Blue-eye boy meets a brown-eye girl.’
And when they shared the clip online with the song in the background, it went viral.
Speaking of the long awaited moment, Sydney said: ‘Honestly, it was the sweetest moment.
The families were hoping to capture a sweet photograph of the babies together, but they all got much more than they bargained for when they cuddled each other and wouldn’t let go
‘We started filming several minutes into their embrace because we’re all so captivated by them both.
‘Two families, coming together to watch the pure, innocent, agape love that these babies shared.
‘Maxwelle just kept hugged Keanu in closer and closer – she is so full of joy and always smiling that this was not a surprise at all.’
