Granger Smith and his wife Amber are expecting! The couple announced that they will welcome a baby boy this August.

The Smiths shared the news on Thursday in a video of their family that honors their late son River, who tragically passed away in a drowning accident at the age of 3 in 2019.

Amber says in the video, “Because of the life you lived, very soon, you’re going to have a baby brother.”

Amber writes in her post, “If I’ve learned anything over the last two years, it’s that I do not have as much control as I think I do … Never did I think at 39 I would be blessed with expecting another baby boy,” Amber writes. “These past couple of years have been so rough but also so full of so much joy, hope, healing, growing and grace from God.”

On their web series, The Smiths, they shared that they have been trying for another baby since January of 2020. Granger said, “I just felt this overwhelming feeling that, as a father, I had extra love to give”
