Granger Smith and his wife, Amber, are expecting a baby boy!

The couple revealed the news on social media on Thursday (March 11) in a heartfelt Instagram post. 

“We’re pregnant. I don’t have many words for this video. Life isn’t perfect. Sometimes it’s beat up and broken but it’s NEVER hopeless. God promises that,” Smith captioned the clip of the family. “Our story isn’t finished yet, and neither is yours! Through our suffering and joy, God’s glory radiates through it all! A new Smith boy is dude in August 🙏🏼”

Amber also shared the news, writing, “God has made a way we never thought possible. 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,” she added. “These past couple of years have been so rough but also so full of so much joy, hope, healing, growing and grace from God. Lord, I pray that our story can speak life to someone else who may be suffering to never give up hope. To surrender their burdens to you. To trust you even when it hurts.”

The news comes 21 months after the death of the couple’s 3-year-old son, River, who tragically drowned in the family’s pool in June of 2019.
