Viral ‘baby buns’ couple wants you to meet their first miracle
DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. — The Virginia couple whose miraculous conception went viral last month has now introduced their “first miracle” to the world — their eldest son, Keelyn.
“The first miracle in our home was not Baby Buns, but our son Keelyn, more than thirteen years ago,” Dana Griffin-Graves posted on the couple’s fan Facebook page. “After a miscarriage and delivering our stillborn baby, Arkell Jr., we often thought that becoming parents would not be a part of our future. Although we did not give birth to him, God gave us the opportunity to be his parents since the day he was born. We absolutely love our son. He keeps us busy and serves as a reminder that God is a prayer answerer.”
According to WTVR, the couple wrote that Keelyn had asked to be a big brother for years. His wish was granted when Dana Griffin-Graves and her husband Arkell Graves welcomed their baby boy, Kaleb Arkell Graves, into the world 16 weeks early last month.
“I can’t wait to have all three of my men in the house together. Thank you, Father for choosing us to be stewards over these miracles. Please continue to keep us all in your prayers,” the Facebook post continued.
The couple made headlines in October for their emotional pregnancy video where Dana surprised her husband with the good news by putting literal buns in the oven next to a sonogram picture. They started trying to have children 17 years ago.
When Arkell realized he was going to be a dad, his reaction was perfect.
