So with the inputs being from_date=2019-01-01 and to_date=today

I need

2019-01-01 - 2019-03-31
2019-04-01 - 2019-06-30
2019-07-01 - 2019-09-30
2019-10-01 - 2019-12-31
2020-01-01 - 2020-02-04

I don't really know any python, but this is the closest I can come up with so far.
The dates are there, I just don't know how to access them or fill in today's date on the last item....

    def get_date_ranges(self, fr_date, to_date):
        qtr_beg = pd.date_range(start=fr_date, end=datetime.date.today(), freq='QS')
        qtr_end = pd.date_range(start=fr_date, end=datetime.date.today(), freq='Q')
        date_range = zip(qtr_beg, qtr_end)
        return date_range
