Paraplegic Dad-to-Be Masterminds the Best Pregnancy Announcement EVAH

Todd Krieg was a professional motocross bike competitor when every athlete’s worst nightmare befell him: a training accident in 2014 caused a spinal injury that left him paraplegic, paralyzed from the waist down. But, it’s entirely possible that Krieg may actually be thankful for his accident, because without it, he wouldn’t have met the woman of his dreams—OR be expecting his first child.

Proverbs 18:22 – “He who finds a WIFE finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the LORD.” Excited to spend forever with this beauty. #MrsKrieg . . ??: @kayladuffinphotography

After the accident Krieg attended therapy at a paralysis recovery center in California, where his therapist was a “cute” girl named Amanda Diesen. Within a year, the two were happily in love, and Diesen followed Krieg when he moved back home to Ohio after his rehab was complete.

After his accident, according to Diesen, doctors told Krieg it would be “nearly impossible to conceive naturally due to Todd’s injury.”

But guess what? Doctors aren’t always right, and the couple, who are now engaged, recently WOWED the Internet with a joyful and hilarious pregnancy announcement, seen here on Krieg’s Instagram:

Guys, I’ve got good news. The wall says it all! Sooo excited to announce that @amandadiesen and I are expecting baby Krieg in August 2017! ?? @kayladuffinphotography #fertilemyrtle #ParalyzedAndPregnant
