Adam revealed the news via a video on Bethany’s website, saying baby Micah arrived on Valentine’s Day.

“I know you guys are probably really wanting to see Bethany and little baby – yes it’s a boy,” Adam explains on the video. “But they’re resting and sleeping. The boys have been excited, we made birthday cookies.

Bethany, 30, and Adam shared an adorable family video revealing their baby news that their boys Wesley, two and five-year-old Tobias are becoming big brothers in October last year. She wrote, “Grateful for more family fun to come!”.

“Everything went really smooth. Mumma’s happy, she’s healthy. We’re just so thankful that everything went smooth.”

During both of her previous pregnancies, Bethany stayed super active, surfing and even skateboarding her way throughout.

Bethany, who lost her arm in a shark attack at just 13-years-old, was the subject of film Soul Surfer, which was based on her book ‘Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board’.

She’s also released several other books – including children’s books.

Bethany Hamilton baby number two

Inspirational pro-surfer and shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton has revealed she’s expecting her second bub, in an adorable video starring her two-year-old son Tobias.

In the clip, Bethany and her husband Adam Dirks are all smiles as their little boy shares his secret – giving his mum’s tummy a sweet kiss.

Bethany, who lost her arm in a shark attack at just 13-years-old, surfed her way through her first pregnancy. She explained at the time that she was anticipating adapting to motherhood like any new parent.

“I often forget that I have one arm. But when I think about it, like, a squirming baby and changing a diaper, just me and this squirming baby, it could be really challenging. But it’s how I live life now, I just adjust and adapt to different things. Especially things that are easier with two arms. I think there are things that are going to be very challenging with one arm, but I’ll just have to find my own way to take care of the baby.”

We’re thrilled for this beautiful mumma! We’re in the midst of quite the celebrity baby and pregnancy boom – don’t miss any of the announcements, make sure to subscribe to our newsletter.
