We knew it wouldn’t be long until we saw Bethany Hamilton’s son hanging ten in the water! Sweet little Tobias is quite the pro already and his proud momma is happily sharing his milestones on social media for all to see. Let us remind you, he’s only 6 months old!
Bethany Hamilton, 25, is one happy momma, her tiny son is following right in her footsteps — or should we say waves. The pro surfer welcomed her first child with husband Adam Dirks on June 1, and already their baby boy Tobias is surfing. Seriously, he’s a natural! The pro surfer proudly shared the news on her Instagram and her minnie-me is just too cute!
Look at him go! Tobias is going to give his own mom a run for her money. The youngster was photographed already taking on some waves in Hawaii and it’s amazing. Bethany shared the snap with the caption: “My surfing baby, Tobias.” In the pic, he is happily relaxing on a blue surf board in the ocean.
Bethany previously revealed to PEOPLE that she is “loving” motherhood and is adjusting to a new way of life. She jumped right back into the water after giving birth and that includes competing professionally again. “[It’s] definitely such a big adjustment. Even surfing, I’ll just be thinking of him. I’ll get back from the beach and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’ve missed you little guy!’ ” So cute.
Throughout her entire pregnancy, Bethany remained on a surfboard — but that doesn’t surprise us. “I’ve been surfing throughout my whole pregnancy,” she stated in her pregnancy video announcement. “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.” Good for her, she’s such a wonderful role model.
