A couple of American surfer welcomed the second son was born.
Bethany Hamilton, 28 years old, the top American professional surfer, revealed on Instagram that she and her husband, Adam Dirks, had just welcomed their second son.
Posting a picture of the family of four members on their personal accounts to announce the birth of baby Wesley Phillip Dirks, Bethany wrote: “We are delighted to welcome Wesley Phillip Dirks son to the world! Thank God for giving me these two boys!”.
Earlier, in October 2017, Bethany posted on Instagram a cute family video, in which her 2-year-old son Tobias kissed his mother’s pregnant belly to announce the good news to fans.
“I want to thank everyone for the warm wishes you all have given us when we hear the news. The longer I have been a mother and a wife, the longer I realized it was a privilege, a happiness and I really appreciate this role”, Bethany once wrote.
Bethany and Adam were married in August 2013 and by the end of 2015, Tobias was born. The story of the living energy, relentless efforts of the famous female skateboarder became the inspiration for many people after she shared her life through the book “Soul Surfer: A True Stoty of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on Board”.
The book was made into a movie starring Dennis Quaid and Carrie Underwood in 2011. Anna Sophie Robb will play the role of Bethany.
Bethany was born in February 1990 into a surfer’s family. She started playing the sport at the age of 8 and by the age of 9 had a sponsor. According to Mail, at 13, while surfing on the beach of Kauai, Hawaii, Bethany was attacked by a shark, causing her to lose all her left arm and 60% of blood in her body.
Although no longer arms but after painful time, Bethany still stood up, determined not to let the attack hinder her passion for surfing. In 2007, Bethany began to compete in professional surfing.
In 2010, Bethany ranked 20th in the list of the world’s best female surf athletes. She has ranked No.1 in at least 8 surfing competitions held in the US and several other countries.
