In quarantine with a newborn? You got this, says Jenna Dewan

In an interview with People published Wednesday, just over two weeks after she and fiance Steve Kazee welcomed their first child together, Dewan opened up about how they're getting by with a new baby at home amid the coronavirus quarantine. 

“I was planning to nest at home and spend really good quality time with our new baby, so not much of that has changed,” Dewan, 39, said. “I like to hole up at home and really enjoy this time together and not go out in the world too much. The difference is we’re not having many visitors." 

The actress revealed on Instagram that the couple – who announced their engagement last month – welcomed their first child together on March 6 and named him Callum Michael Rebel Kazee. Callum is the first child for Kazee, 44, and the second for Dewan, who shares 6-year-old daughter Everly with ex-husband Channing Tatum.

"And just like that, our hearts exploded into all of eternity and beyond," she captioned a black-and-white photo of her snuggling their new bundle of joy. "Welcome to the world you little angel!"

Pro tip from the Dewan-Kazee household: Quarantine with a baby is what you make it. Dewan highlighted the benefits of being able to use video chat services like FaceTime and Skype, which are letting their friends and family meet the new baby from a safe distance. 

“Perspective is important here. We’re really choosing to look at the positives and enjoy the simple quality family time we’re all getting,” says Dewan. “And we’re definitely practicing the social distancing and making sure we’re doing our part to help the world out with social distancing and flattening the curve.”
