Hugo Dellien: How COVID-19 Restrictions Prevent Him From Seeing His First Child

Bolivian writes open letter to baby Mila via Instagram last Saturday

Hugo Dellien is eager to begin competing again, but he’s even more eager to see his first child in person. The 26-year-old Bolivian and his wife, Camila Giangreco Campiz, welcomed a baby girl named Mila on 25 April, but sudden border restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic have prevented the family from reuniting.

Dellien and Campiz expected Mila to be born in Paraguay, where Campiz is from. But when Dellien traveled back to Bolivia to visit his family for a few days, he was unable to return after the Bolivian government suddenly announced the closure of its borders on 17 March. Paraguay closed their own borders days later. 

He revealed the news of his baby daughter and current situation last Saturday via Instagram by posting a photo of the newborn. Dellien wrote an open letter to her in the lengthy post, sharing his wish to see his family again and expressing optimism for the future.

“I want to tell you that we are having a difficult time [and] the world is going through difficult moments. That is why daddy could not be there the day you came into the world. It hurts and I am suffering a lot. I will not deny it,” Dellien wrote. “But you know what? I would go through it again a thousand times as long as everything turned out the way it did, your mommy well and and you full of love, health and a unique beauty.

“You will teach me to be a great father and we will teach you to be a great woman… I miss you so much and I want you to know that the love papa has for you is the greatest in the world. You changed papa’s life completely and that is the most beautiful thing that happened to me in life.”
