Pro Surfer Bethany Hamilton Temporarily Quits Surfing Until Baby #2 Arrives

Second-time mom-to-be Bethany Hamilton has decided at 7-months pregnant that she’s going to take a break from surfing until baby number 2 arrives.

“The hardest part of pregnancy for me is not surfing!” Hamilton captioned a photo of herself in a bikini in front of a board where she shared the news at the end of the  year. “I’m taking a lil break, but it’s soooo worth it! Grow baby grow ??✨?”

Hamilton became famous at age 13 when she was attacked by a shark while surfing but she didn’t let that very traumatic event deter her from returning to her love. She returned just one month after the attack and went on to become a top pro surfer. The true definition of a boss babe!  

She and her husband, Christian youth minister Adam Dirks, wed in 2013 in Hawaii  and welcomed their son Tobias, 2, on June 1, 2015.

We are LOVING her maternity photos and looks that she has shared on Instagram this pregnancy.

What an awesome year! Here are a few of my highlights!!! My family and I traveled international 6 times and in doing so, we wrapped the 4 year filming of my upcoming Documentary @unstoppablethefilm expecting to release summer/ fall 2018 ? we also enjoyed our annual events with our org @friendsofbethanyhamilton and I was inducted into the hall of fame for surfing! But most exciting moment of the year was realizing we are growing our family! God is good and we are so thankful for the good times and the growing times. We look forward to life in 2018! Happy new year?
