It’s tough being away from loved-ones during lockdown, but even harder when it’s their birthday or a special occasion.
Not willing to let her dad miss out on any birthday celebrations, Amy Huberman arranged a gorgeous – socially distant – family party.
The actress and her brothers stood outside his nursing home, and had a chat through the window.
Taking to social media, Amy said, “Happy birthday Dad. Both you and I thought you were 83 until we realised you are actually only a mere chisler of 82.”
“It’s been so strange seeing you from afar for so long now. It’s the first time myself and my brothers have ever had a birthday party for you by standing 2m apart and shouting/singing happy birthday to/at you through the window.
“Things to look forward to when this is all over; a proper hug! But for now for your birthday you got some pretty awful singing and the knowledge you’re actually a whole year younger.”
Amy previously revealed the hardest thing about lockdown, is being separated from her dad.
Speaking to Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show, she said, “Sometimes it comes in waves and I have a little cry and I miss my parents and my dad is in a nursing home and he’s feeling really isolated, we all are.”
While he isn’t great at FaceTime, Amy said that the staff in the nursing home ‘have been amazing’ helping in any way they can.
