This guy is the definition of a survivor!
Jeff Bauman was involved in the Boston Marathon bombing, and sadly lost both of his legs — though he could've lost so much more. He later gave an identification of the bombers, and became a hero!
And his life just got better because he’s going to be a married man and a father!
Jeff and his fiancée Erin Hurley recently announced that they are expecting a baby together on July 14th, but they’re keeping the gender of the little one a secret! They’re not even going to find out!
As for the new addition, Jeff said:
"My mom loves it. My dad's going crazy. I just want to be a good dad."
Aww! That’s sweet! We’re sure he’ll be a great one!
The wedding, however, will have to wait. They got engaged in February, exchanging white-gold engagement rings, but with all of the baby craziness going on, the couple is holding off on the ceremony.
Oh, and did we mention Jeff’s memoir comes out on April 8th?!
Yup, it definitely looks like they have their hands full! Ha!
It’s just great that even in the face of tragedy these two have been able to continue to live a happy and positive life!
That’s the real middle finger to those awful human beings that attacked innocent and wonderful people last year!
