Surfer Bethany Hamilton Has Welcomed Baby No. 2 — Find Out His Name!
It’s another boy for Bethany Hamilton! The surfer has just welcomed her second child, a son named Wesley, with husband Adam Dirks.
The proud mom (who lost her arm in a shark attack when she was 13) shared the news via Instagram, posting a pic of herself with Dirks, their newborn baby boy, and their two-year-old son, Tobias.
“We are overjoyed to welcome our son Wesley Phillip Dirks into the world!” Hamilton captioned the photo. While she didn’t reveal when exactly the baby arrived, she did add, “It’s been a beautiful time getting life started with the four of us! We are thankful to God for our two lil guys!!!”
The 27-year-old revealed back in November that she was expecting her second child, posting an adorable video to Instagram that showed little Tobias trying to give his unborn baby brother some affection by kissing his mom’s tummy. Hamilton also took to Twitter at the time to share her gratitude over her fans’ excitement around the news, writing, “Thank you everyone for the warm wishes; I appreciate the support for our growing family! Special time.”
From there, she kept her followers updated on every step of her pregnancy, from her still-active lifestyle to her adorable baby bump and, of course, each trimester at the beach. And now that little Wesley has arrived, we look forward to plenty of pics of the family’s new addition.
Congratulations, Bethany, Adam, and Tobias! Welcome to the world, Wesley!
