“Adam and I found out 5 months ago we are expecting a child! I’m happy to share this wonderful time in our lives with you!,” Hamilton wrote in a recent newsletter. “We are looking forward to becoming parents early this summer. I’ve always looked forward to one day being a mom and now that the time is coming; it is pretty nerve-racking. I pray that the Lord will lead Adam and I in this new step in life, that we may show the ways of the Lord to our child and future children. Like I said, as exciting as last year was, I think this year will be even more exciting …”

Bethany added that she has been spending time surfing and spending time with family before her baby arrives on the scheduled due date in early June.

“Well I have been surfing as much as I can before lil Jr. takes over my belly, so this month I surfed a lot of fun waves; loving surfing just as much as ever! Also Adam’s parent visited and we had a great time with them. I am so grateful for awesome in-law parents who love us and support us dearly,” she writes.
