You may have seen the Wetzel’s pregnancy announcement a few months ago that went viral. Paige surprised Josh at his 30th birthday party with a sweet slideshow at Jordan-Hare Stadium announcing the pregnancy of their second child.

Josh was injured during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2012 and lost both legs, immediately. Paige was by his side at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland during his journey to recovery. Along with standing for the first time after injury and many more miracles they gave birth to their first baby girl, Harper.
