Already 2021 has been a difficult year for many people, with tough restrictions on people's daily lives to curb the spread of the illness.

It has been a particularly difficult time for new parents, who would otherwise be showing off their new arrivals to friends and family but have otherwise had to cope with the challenges of bringing up a baby on their own.

However, these beautiful bonny babies have made coping with lockdown life just that little bit easier.
