After gaining viral fame following their long battle to have a child, Virginia couple Dana Griffin-Graves and Arkell Graves have welcomed a new baby boy into the world, WTVR reports.

The couple first gained social media attention after Griffin-Graves surprised her husband with the news of their “miracle baby.” Griffin-Graves suffered four miscarriages and a stillborn during their fight to have a child. She discovered she was five months pregnant earlier this month and brought her husband to tears with the news of a “bun” in the oven. Video of the reveal captured the hearts of many, gaining close to 10 million views on YouTube.

While she was expected to give birth in February, Griffin-Graves delivered baby Kaleb Akell Graves at 24 weeks and a day pregnant on Tuesday. The mother is currently in critical care and the family has asked followers to keep the parents and Kaleb in their prayers.

WTVR reports:

“Today, our baby will have to be delivered, at 24 weeks and one day,” a post on the Arkell & Dana’s Baby Bun Facebook page detailed. “As Dana is in critical care, her body has endured all it can take. We are believing God. It’s always been in His Hands, so we hold on to Him. Please keep us in your prayers today and always. We apologize that we are unable to answer every call, text and message, but please know that we appreciate you. Help us thank Him in advance for the miracle that is about to happen. ‪#‎DeliveryDay‬ ‪#‎KeepPraying‬”

The couple previously told BuzzFeed they were trying to have a child for over a decade and decided to give up.

BuzzFeed reports:

She said she got a clue something was up when she started walking with her friends but wasn’t losing weight like they were. She went to the doctor and learned she was pregnant. After finding out how far along she was, she began scheming with her family as to the best way to tell her husband.

“I was ecstatic,” she said. “We hadn’t planned anything, we weren’t trying.”
