Abby has a lot to be thankful for! Not only was she rescued at sea, but now she also has a new little brother!

Abby Sunderland is a big sister again! Her parents, Marianne and Laurence Sunderland, welcomed their eighth child June 29 — a boy named Paul-Louis Sunderland! The healthy new addition to the Sunderland clan arrived while Abby, 16, was at a press conference in Marina del Rey, Calif.

Abby’s baby brother, who was born 8 lbs., 9 oz, was named after the French fishing boat captain who saved her, Paul Louis Le Moigne. Paul spent 30 hours on his boat, Ile de la Reunion, trying to find Abby while she was stranded on her 40-ft. sailboat in the Indian Ocean.

We’re so happy that Abby is safe and was able to share the joys of having a new baby brother!
