Pro Surfer Bethany Hamilton Marries Adam Dirks
Bethany Hamilton is a married lady! The pro surfer tied the knot with Adam Dirks on Saturday, Aug. 17, the athlete confirmed via Twitter.
"Today was the most beautiful, wonderful best day of my life! God is more than good(: Excited to live life with my husband Adam Dirks!" she wrote.
The surfer married in Kauai, Hawaii in an intimate, but not too small ceremony. "I'm born and raised there and still live there, so getting married where I'm from," she told Us Weekly at the Zico Pure Premium Coconut Water event in Santa Monica, Calif. earlier this month. Turns out, Hawaii is the same place Hamilton lost an arm in a tiger shark attack in 2003.
The couple met in spring 2012 and announced their engagement in April. As for their honeymoon, "we're doing a non tropical honeymoon," Hamilton revealed. "We're gonna get a cabin, it's going to be cute."
