After losing their 3-year-old son River in a drowning accident in 2019, Granger Smith and his wife Amber announced they are expecting a baby and it will be a boy.

Granger and his family posted a touching video speaking to River in heaven saying in part, “Dear River because of the life you lived we’ve known so much joy…” Then after the family shares a few more things that River’s life brought to them, they say, “River, because of the life you lived you’re going to have a baby brother.”

Granger posted to Instagram along with the video, “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. 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 due in August.”
