Meet The Husband That Brings Date Nights To Wife's Hospital Window As She Waits On Bed Rest For Son's Birth

Meet the husband that brings date nights to wife's hospital window as she waits on bed rest for son's birth.... Shona Moeller, 28 weeks pregnant, has spent the past six weeks on bed rest at a Chicago-area hospital awaiting the birth of her first child, a son.


And once a week when she looks outside the window of her hospital room, she sees her husband, Robert Conlin, sitting four floors down on a sidewalk at a table decorated with flowers and candles.

Conlin, who is not able to visit his wife in the hospital because of COVID-19 restrictions, started bringing date nights to Moeller at the hospital as a way to help things feel normal in a very abnormal time.

He orders takeout from the couple's favorite restaurant and has Moeller's entree brought to her hospital room. Conlin enjoys his entree at the sidewalk table and the two FaceTime with each other while they eat dinner.

"I think it’s a little glimpse of some normalcy," Conlin, 45, told "Good Morning America." "We ask each other on dates all the time still and the first time I came [to the hospital] as a date night, I asked her the same thing, 'Do you want to go on a dinner date with me?'"

"She thought we were just going to do it over FaceTime so when I showed up, she was really surprised," he said.


"In this time where I’m by myself, every gesture feels so monumental and lovely and sweet," she said. "It felt like he had traveled the world to come see me because it meant so much."

Moeller, a high school teacher and part-time life coach, had a normal pregnancy up until 20 weeks when her water broke prematurely. She spent three weeks on bed rest at home trying to not go into labor and then was admitted to AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center in Hinsdale, Illinois, when she reached 23 weeks of pregnancy.
