Ex-spouse received child stimulus payment based upon 2019 dependency, not 2020 dependency

My client claims her son every other year. She claims him in 2020, but her ex-spouse received the stimulus for him both times.  When I enter what she received in 2020, it wants to give her an extra $1100 for her son (because he's a dependent in 2020).  How do I report this correctly?  I don't believe she should be receiving $1100 also, but I'm not sure how to get the correct result using ProConnect Tax.

Thank you for your help.

It is allowed.  Both parents get the cash based on that situation.
