Couple talk about life changes that come when you're expecting

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 February, 2015 - Bethany Hamilton has made a YouTube video announcing that she and husband Adam Dirks are going to be parents. Hamilton is 22 weeks pregnant and still surfing but says she’ll be slowing down as her pregnancy develops. 

In the video the couple talks about choosing a baby name, finding a new balance in life and mother duties with one arm. 

"We are looking forward to becoming parents early this summer," said Bethany. "I’ve always looked forward to one day being a mom and now that the time is coming; it is pretty nerve-racking. I pray that the Lord will lead Adam and I in this new step in life, that we may show the ways of the Lord to our child and future children."

The baby boy is due early June.
