Bethany Hamilton Is Excited To Announce… There’s Another Baby On The Way!
She and her husband Adam Dirk can’t wait to meet their new little one, due in March of 2018.
Bethany Hamilton has been a part of Rip Curl since she was just nine years old, and over the last two decades we have been through so much together. It has been wonderful to watch her grow as both a surfer and a person, and now, it is our pleasure to announce that she and her husband Adam are having their second child.
We wish her, Adam and their youngest son Tobias all the best in the coming months, and we can’t wait to watch them as grow and embark on this new journey as a bigger family.
“We are excited to share with you all that we are expecting another child!” Bethany announced to the world today, via Instagram.
“Adam and I are so so sooo excited! And Tobias seems to get excited too; he gives baby kisses every day! We are thankful we can grow our family and add even more joy to life.
“Becoming parents to Tobias has been such a beautiful journey. We love the joy and also the challenges he brings to our life; and he is sure ready for a sibling.
“I’m thankful my pregnancy has been mellow and manageable!”
She also mentioned that she and Adam have decided to wait to find out whether or not they’re having a boy or a girl…
“I begged Adam to wait ‘till the baby’s birthday to find out the gender, and he agreed. With Tobias we found out, but I really wanted a surprise for this baby. So, surprise it will be!”
Bethany and Adam are expecting their next baby in March of 2018, and we can’t wait to meet the little guy/girl.
Congratulations Bethany and Adam!
Interview: Bethany Hamilton, on Baby Number Two
Inside the mind of the surfing inspiration that is Bethany Hamilton.
If you follow Bethany Hamilton on social media (and who doesn’t!?), then by now you would know that she and her husband Adam are pregnany with their second child.
When she announced the big news on Instagram, she mentioned how thankful she was for the #babyonboard, with the couple’s first son Tobias clearly excited as well.
Bethany has been a part of Rip Curl since she was just nine years old, and it’s been a pleasure to watch her grow over the years into the inspirational mother, wife, surfer and all-round great human that she is today.
We caught up with Bethany once the news went public, to ask a few more questions about this big life change…
Bethany! Congratulations. So… was this second baby someone you had in mind, or was he or she a bit of a surprise?
Adam and I had been hoping to have another baby soon… and now we are on our way to growing our family! We both grew up with siblings and love the camaraderie that family brings.
What are you most excited about, once the baby is born?
Um, I'm guessing just having baby out in the world with us! So precious and beautiful. I think it will be fun to see how Tobias, our firstborn, does with baby!
Also I'm sure I'll be antsy to get back in the water as well!
How does the second pregnancy compare to the first? Does it get any easier?
It's been literally so similar, and thankfully my first pregnancy went pretty smoothly. So hopefully, everything continues to go well and baby and I are healthy!
Has it been fun being pregnant at the same time as your good friend and Rip Curl teammate, Alana Blanchard?
So much fun! Motherhood bonds you like nothing else! Alana has embraced motherhood so beautifully! I think she will be a wonderful mom. I can't wait to meet her little guy and I'm even more excited for fun times together as moms!
Are you nervous about what it'll be like to handle two children?
Only nervous for flights and travel! I'm sure there will be adjustments, but I’m not too concerned. More just really looking forward to it!
Well we can’t wait to meet the little one – and find out if it’s a boy or a girl on his/her birthday!
