Surfer Bethany Hamilton Welcomes a Baby Boy!

Bethany Hamilton is a mom! Our favorite surfer girl, who inspired people everywhere with her beautiful surfing-while-pregnant photos, shared the news of the birth of her baby boy on Twitter earlier today, writing, "Blessed to welcome our son, Tobias, into the world!" #stokedmomma"

Hamilton, 25, lost her left arm in a shark attack when she was just a teen, but didn't let that stop her from getting back on a suf board — so it's no surprise that a burgeoning belly didn't slow her down, either. She posted gorgeous shots of herself surfing well into her pregnancy on social media, before finally trading one water activty for another (more bump-friendly) exercise: swimming.
