The 20-year-old first-time mom announced the news she was expecting through a video shared online in August 2017. "Austin and I are SO thankful to announce that we are parents!! Even before we were married we prayed that God would give us children and we are so blessed that he has given us this baby!" the couple penned on social media at the time.
