Revealing that the two unknowingly spread it to her parents "on Christmas Eve," Carson noted that her mom and dad were robbed of holding their grandchild after he was born.

"They weren't out of quarantine yet and had to meet their grandson for the first time through a window," she lamented, saying it "literally broke my heart into pieces."
