"Baby is popping. ❤️ Our lil ray of sun ☀️ this year!!!. And I'm getting some surf in! Second trimester has always been the best time in pregnancy for me. More energy and better sleep."


With more than a hundred and forty-eight likes and five hundred comments, Hamilton's fans left their support and admiration on the post. From the comments section of the post, fans quizzed Hamilton on the gender of her baby to which she said was kept as a surprise.

Hamilton's life as a survivor has had a tremendous impact on many and became the subject of the film, "Soul Surfer."


Last month, the professional surfer announced her pregnancy with a cute Instagram video that involved her two sons, Tobias and Wesley, and her husband, Adam Dirks.

In the caption to the video, Hamilton said she was grateful for more family fun to come. The mother of two has always been open about her family on social media, especially about her husband, Adam.


In a recent Instagram post, Hamilton professed her love for Adam, a Christian youth minister she married in 2013. The "Soul Surfer" star gushed about her marriage to Adam and his commitment to their family.

The couple welcomed their first child, Tobias, in 2015. A second son, Wesley, was welcomed in 2018, and the family is about to expand to five! Aside from having a growing family, Hamilton has also had to face the demands of being a professional surfer and competing at the top with one arm. Her love for her family only betters her passion for surfing.


Following her accident with a 15ft tiger shark in 2003, Hamilton returned to surfing in 2007 and became the national surfing champion. Her resilience and passion have gathered a broad interest in her person.

Hamilton's life as a survivor has had a tremendous impact on many and became the subject of the film "Soul Surfer" and the fan-favorite documentary, "Unstoppable."
