A couple whose touching pregnancy announcement went viral earlier this year announced that their infant son has arrived early.
Dana Griffin-Graves and Arkell Graves initially made headlines last month after a video announcing their pregnancy went viral. The couple said on YouTube that they had dealt with four miscarriages and one stillbirth and had initially given up on having children.
Griffin-Graves filmed video as she told her husband they were pregnant again, by putting a picture of a sonogram next to a bun in the oven. In the video, Graves is overcome with emotion as he realizes his wife is already five months pregnant.
“You’re pregnant! You’re pregnant!" he says in the video before being breaking down and crying.
The couple announced this week that they had some setbacks, when they said on Facebook that Griffin-Graves was in the critical care center as doctors tried to stop her from delivering the infant too early. Rebecca Branch-Griffin, Dana Griffin-Graves' mother, confirmed to ABC News today that Griffin-Graves delivered her son Tuesday, just 24 weeks into the pregnancy.
Since he was 16 weeks premature, Branch-Griffin said he is in the neonatal intensive care unit.
"He's stable," Branch-Griffin said. "They're doing all of the things that they do for premies."
The Branch-Griffin said her daughter was also doing well and recovering. The grandmother said she is "extremely" excited about seeing her grandson.
The couple announced on Facebook that they named their son Kaleb Arkell Graves.
