DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. — The Virginia couple whose emotional pregnancy announcement went viral gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday afternoon, according to WTVR.
Dana Griffin-Graves and her husband Arkell Graves welcomed their baby boy, Kaleb Arkell Graves, into the world 16 weeks early.
The Graves family is now asking for prayers for the mother and child.
“Today, our baby will have to be delivered, at 24 weeks and one day,” a post on the Arkell & Dana’s Baby Bun Facebook page detailed. “As Dana is in critical care, her body has endured all it can take. We are believing God. It’s always been in His Hands, so we hold on to Him. Please keep us in your prayers today and always. We apologize that we are unable to answer every call, text and message, but please know that we appreciate you. Help us thank Him in advance for the miracle that is about to happen. #DeliveryDay #KeepPraying”
Just a few weeks ago, the couple made international headlines with their pregnancy announcement.
After delivering a stillborn baby at six months and four miscarriages, the couple had given up on having children.
Naturally, Dana was ecstatic when she found out that she was five months pregnant after 17 years of trying to get pregnant.
Dana decided to surprise her husband with the news so she put literal buns in the oven, and next to the buns, she placed a sonogram picture.
When Arkell realized he was going to be a dad, his reaction was perfect.
