It's an exciting time for professional surfer Bethany Hamilton as she welcomes a new baby to the family. On Tuesday, the proud mom announced to the world that she has given birth to a baby boy.
“We are overjoyed to welcome our son Wesley Phillip Dirks into the world! It’s been a beautiful time getting life started with the four of us,” Hamilton wrote in her Instagram post. “We are thankful to God for our two lil guys!!!”
Hamilton had been keeping the sex of her new baby a secret until his birth. Hamilton, 28, and husband Adam Dirks are already proud parents to their 2 1/2-year-old son Tobias.
Hamilton shared the exciting news she and her husband were expecting back in October 2017 with a video of Tobias kissing her growing belly. “More than thankful to share our joyous news,” Hamilton captioned the clip. “#babyinthere #babyonboard," she wrote.
The pro-surfer, actress, and author defied the odds after being bit by a shark in 2003. While she did lose her arm from the attack, she has gone on to be a shining example to many. She is also an outspoken Christian who has used her platform to encourage others to trust God and His promises when faced with adversity.
