Todd Krieg and Amanda Diesen were engaged and found out they were expecting their first child all in one day. It’s pretty exciting stuff, but the baby news was especially thrilling, as Krieg is paralyzed from the chest down and the couple were told they may not be able to conceive without medical intervention.
Happily, that wasn’t at all the case.
On the website where people can vote for the couple to win a free wedding, Diesen writes, “Doctors had said it would be nearly impossible to conceive naturally due to Todd’s injury, but here we are, 14 weeks pregnant.”
According to PopSugar, when they met in 2015, Krieg was a year past the dirt bike crash that partially paralyzed him, ending his motocross career. Their love story began when Diesen was working at a paralysis recovery center where Krieg was a patient. They fell in love and now, are expecting a baby and about to be married.
