Bethany Hamilton is officially on board with motherhood.

The surfing champion and husband Adam Dirks welcomed their first child, a son, on Monday, June 1, she announced Monday on Twitter.

He was born weighing 7 lbs., 9 oz., and measured 21 inches long.

“Blessed to welcome our son, Tobias, into the world! #astokedmomma,” she tweeted, along with a family photo of the couple gazing at their bundled up newborn.

The new mama — whose baby boy is “named after his great grandpa Tobias, meaning ‘the goodness of God’ ” — shared her excitement on Instagram.

“Adam and I so in love with our lil guy and are stoked to share life with him!” she wrote.

Hamilton, who lost her left arm to a tiger shark at 13, announced she was pregnant with a son in a video she posted to YouTube in February.

“It’s been a pretty crazy last four months, finding out that we’re going to be parents and life’s going to be changing,” the mom-to-be, 25, said.
