Speaking to Indy100, Holly said that she and her aunt had a “good laugh” about the misunderstanding and that she was “unaware” that she was going to go viral.
“After a good laugh, I replied, telling her that I was in fact only pregnant with the viral particles of Omicron and she told me to get well soon, unaware that she was about to go viral in a different way on Twitter.”
Baxter said that she was driving when her aunt first heard that people enjoyed her mixup.
“The next day and heard it discussed on BBC breakfast radio when she promptly texted me to say she was ‘laughing her head off,’ and had told all my cousins,” she continued.
Baxter added that her aunt has always been “good-humoured” so she knew she would be a good sport about it.
“I think everyone appreciated a bit of light relief from the Covid explosion situation, so I’m glad to have provided some.”
