Jenna has made a conscious effort to document the family’s time in quarantine on Instagram – from cuddles with Callum to bonding time with dog Cosmo.
By engaging in a self-imposed quarantine, the couple are forced to limit all visitors, including family members.
A source close to the family told People: ‘They are limiting visitors to try and keep everyone healthy. The pandemic is obviously extra worrisome with a newborn.’
Meanwhile, Dewan and ex-husband Channing Tatum’s daughter Everly, six, is home for two weeks amid school closures.

‘Steve has been great. He is changing diapers and carrying the baby around,’ said the insider of the first time father.
Dewan and Kazee welcomed Callum into the world on March 6, less than one month after they announced their engagement to the world via Instagram.
