Shark attack survivor welcomes son

Inspirational professional-surfer Bethany Hamilton welcomed a baby boy on June 1st. Aged 13, Bethany lost her arm – and 60 per cent of the blood in her body – when she was attacked by a shark while surfing off the coast of Kauai. Incredibly, she survived the attack.

The now 25-year-old and husband Adam Dirks announced the news and shared a first picture of the baby with fans.

Hamilton, who lost her arm in a 2003 shark attack, shared the happy news yesterday, June 15.
‘Blessed to welcome our son, Tobias, into the world! #stokedmomma,’ she captioned it. shark2
