Surfer Bethany Hamilton and her husband Adam Dirks surprised fans on Sunday, Feb. 8 — the couple announced they’re expecting their first child together!
“We have a little surprise for you…baby on board!” the 25-year-old pro surfer revealed in a video posted to her website. “She’s pregnant!” her hubby Dirks adorably added.
“I’m about 22 weeks, which is about halfway there,” a glowing Hamilton added. “It’s been a pretty crazy last four months finding out that we’re gonna be parents. Life’s kinda gonna be changing and [we’re] kinda just starting to prep for bringing a new little being into the world. It’s all really exciting.”
“We found out it’s a boy, so we’re looking for boy names,” the couple also revealed. “We’ve got a few in mind.”
Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack in 2003, isn’t going to lay low, either. “I’ve been surfing throughout my whole pregnancy,” she admitted. “I plan to surf as long as I can. Once the belly’s pretty big maybe [I’ll] just like mellow it out and spend more time swimming and just enjoying the ocean and doing other activities,” she added.
Hamilton and Dirks, who competed on season 25 of The Amazing Race, said “I do” in an intimate wedding in Hawaii in August 2013.
