“It was a long lockdown, there were times that were lovely and we had time at home and I had our little baby kind of in the middle of it all so there were some nice parts but it was as terrifying and frustrating as everyone else was.
“There have been good and bad days and lonely days,” she added.
The actress documented Brian’s various hobbies during the pandemic on her Instagram page and joked that he had become Builder Bob.
“He went crazy with the baking, we ate a lot of bread, but again a lot of his job got undone and he’s a man of action, so he just did it.
“I stood there rehashing him, but he was good company during what was a crazy time,” she said.
Huberman said she was really looking forward to returning to work once the restrictions were relaxed, but joked that it took a while for her to readjust to social interaction.
“I really missed going to work, when the first lockdown started I had just finished a really intensive amount of work so I was ready.
“Then when things got a little better, and because I had the baby also because normally I would suffer from mum’s guilt, but this time I was like ‘goodbye’!
“But it was really exciting, my first day on set. I did a few days on a drama this summer and it was so much fun, but I kind of realized how much I hadn’t been with anyone.
“I had a great day on the set and I was chatting with everyone, and there was the whole team and I was in the car on the way home and I was like ‘that was so awesome’ .
“And then I came home and threw up.
“I was like an over-excited kid at a party like I saw too much and talked too much but got better,” she said.
