Jeff Bauman, 28, and his fiancee, Erin Hurley, 27, told The Associated Press in a recent interview that the baby is due July 14. They don't know if it's a boy or a girl, and they want it to be a surprise.
"My mom loves it. My dad's going crazy," Bauman said. As for himself, "I just want to be a good dad."
The two have been preparing for the baby's arrival by painting a nursery in their home in Carlisle. Hurley said Sunday that she and the baby are healthy and her pregnancy is going well. They became engaged in February and together picked out a white-gold engagement ring. She said they plan to marry next year.
"We've got a lot going on. So we don't need to do everything all at once," she said.
An AP photo of a badly injured Bauman being rushed away in a wheelchair by three rescuers became one of the most memorable images of the April 15, bombings, which killed three people.
He was standing near the finish line waiting to cheer on Hurley as she completed the marathon when the two bombs exploded. Bauman became a hero after he provided a description of one of the suspected bombers from his hospital bed.
Bauman's memoir on his experiences, called "Stronger," is out April 8, one week before the anniversary of the bombings.
Happy for this guy!
Hes In!!!! So insperational , best wish to them......
:).......I noticed too.
GOOD FOR HIM! He deserves all the happiness. Those work at home schemes pale in comparison to someone who has faced the problems he has. He will still be around when those schemes are closed down by the FTA or other agencies.
I wish eeryone involved well !!
May GOD bless their marriage and the children thereof. Love prevails.
Amen, and Amen!
Congratulations to you two. Children are the present and the future helping us live in the moment and plan for what is yet to come. Jeff, I think most kids think of their dads as heroes but you'll probably get an extra star. May your lives together be happy and loving.
Glad to hear your doing ok ; congrads on the baby hope yoy live a long life !!
DOES ANYONE have a way i can contact Jeff Bauman ??? e-mail or cell phone maybe ? i am a bi-lat-bk-amputee myself for 40 + years and would like to talk to him .
Maybe try the hospital he was in, the police department? Even the newspaper in the area --- or look up his fiancee on the list of runners in the marathon. Just ideas - hope you can reach him. Do good!!
Maybe you can post on his Facebook page saying you want to get in touch with him, and arrange something that way.
God Bless you both during this special time in your life and your wonderful future. The trials we face in life are always rewarded above and beyond on wildest dreams. A lovely woman, technology and new life all seem like the grand prize. I am sure at the beginning of this horrid experience nothing looked appealing but the looks on your faces say it all. You are a Mr. Bauman in many ways and so is the future Mrs. Bauman for standing by you and giving you additional strength. You both saved a lot of people if that young man had not been caught....In your pain you did for others.....Have a wonderful life and God Bless the three of you and more
I think you all some are missing the point..the "hero" in him is that he made it, he continues to thrive as a survivor , and he is being applauded for not letting it change his life anymore than it has to. He is a fighter. I also feel the gentlemen who is seen in several pics pushing his wheel chair is a very big hero..that's the ex military man who literally saved his life by stemming the bleeding as best he could.
