Find out if it's a boy or girl for Soul Surfer Bethany Hamilton and hubby Adam Dirks

Surprise!

That's what surfer Bethany Hamilton and her husband Adam Dirks had for their fans when they posted a video announcing they are expecting their first child together!

Hamilton and Dirks, a youth minister, have been married for two years, and on Monday, the couple announced, "So, we have a little surprise for you, Baby on board!"

Dirks also let the cat out of the bag on the gender and let everyone know the couple is expecting a little baby boy in early June, but we will have to wait until then to find out what name they have chosen.

Hamilton lost her left arm to a shark back in 2003 near her home on the island of Kauai in Hawaii, but she was able to triumph over the accident and continue to compete as an elite surfer. And who could forget the inspiring movie, Soul Surfer, which told her story.

Watch the too-cute couple gush about being excited for the next steps in their lives and changing diapers on the beach!

And, of course, congrats!
