Bethany Hamilton Is Pregnant 2015

Surfer Bethany Hamilton Is Expecting Her First Child

Bethany Hamilton is pregnant! The surfer and her husband, Adam Dirks, are expecting their first child. The couple revealed the news in a sweet video posted to Bethany's YouTube channel on Tuesday; the clip is titled "Baby on Board" and features Bethany showing off her baby bump in a one-piece swimsuit while surfing with Adam in the ocean. Bethany goes on to answer a few questions about the new chapter in her life, saying that she is "about halfway" along in her pregnancy and that she and and Adam recently found out that they're having a boy. As for names, they are "prowling" for the perfect one, though they won't be sharing it until the little one is born.

Bethany, who made headlines after losing her arm in a shark attack back in 2003, also says in the video that she plans to "surf as long as I can," adding, "Once the belly's pretty big, maybe [I'll] just spend more time swimming and just enjoying the ocean and doing other activities." She and Adam tied the knot in a small ceremony in Hawaii back in August 2013, and you can watch their cute pregnancy announcement video above now.
