Bethany Surfed All Throughout Her Pregnancy
The happy couple announced the news back in Feb. 2015 with a sweet video on Instagram and on their YouTube page. In the video, Bethany told fans “We have a little surprise for you … baby on board!” Adam quickly followed up with “She’s pregnant!”
Bethany & Adam, who wed in 2013, went on to reveal that she was 22 weeks pregnant. She happily gushed and stated,”Life’s kinda gonna be changing and kinda just starting to prep for bringing a new little being into the world.”
She also has been snapped surfing all throughout her pregnancy — but that doesn’t surprise us. “I’ve been surfing throughout my whole pregnancy,” she stated in the video. “I plan to surf as long as I can. Once the belly’s pretty big maybe [I’ll] just like mellow it out and spend more time swimming and just enjoying the ocean and doing other activities.”
