Bethany Hamilton is going to be a mom!

The 25-year-old pro surfer, who lost her left arm in a shark attack in 2003, and her hubby Adam Dirks announced they are expecting their first child yesterday.

"So we have a little surprise for on board!" the pregnant star says in their joint announcement video online. "She's pregnant!" Dirks added.

"In baby terms I'm about 22 weeks, which is about halfway there," Hamilton explained. "It's been a pretty crazy last four months finding out that we're gonna be parents. Life's kinda gonna be changing and kinda just starting to prep for bringing a new little being into the world. It's all really exciting."

While they won't reveal the baby name, Dirks did reveal, "We found out it's a boy so we're looking for boy names. We've got a few in mind."

And Hamilton says she's been staying super-fit throughout the pregnancy by continuing her surfing. "I've been surfing throughout my whole pregnancy," she dished. "I plan to surf as long as I can. Once the belly's pretty big maybe just like mellow it out and spend more time swimming and just enjoying the ocean and doing other activities."

Hamilton and Dirks married back in August 2013 during an intimate Hawaiian ceremony near their home.
