    It is with enormous pride and unbridled love and appreciation that we FINALLY present to the world, our miraculous SON

    Indy Wayan Bechtold

    Born today, July 5th @ 7:26pm

    Weighing 8lbs13oz or 4kg bang on the knocker…(thanks McPuddingPop, you were way off!)

    Both mother and baby are doing very well. Daddy needs a spatula to peel himself off the ceiling.

    Thank you so much to all our family, friends and strangers all around the world who have been touched by our story and flooded us with love, support and best wishes along every step of this incredible journey. And an extra special thank you to the amazing hospital and midwife staff for helping to bring little Indy into our world and into our hearts.

    I feel like he has been one of the most anticipated arrivals on the planet, and I can hardly believe he’s here!

    My biggest thank you of all, goes out to the most amazing woman I’ve ever met in my entire life. Your continued love, strength, passion, thoughtfulness, guidance, support and belief in me and our desire to be the Love of the Century, inspires me every day. How did I get so lucky as to wake up every morning to that gorgeous heart-shaped smile and soft beautiful eyes. You are the spark that ignites my heart that makes me feel like the most special man on the entire planet. I just wish I could remember your name…

    I love you eternally…Whats’er’name 😉

    I’m so proud of you.

    Although we missed the US Independence Day by one day, that’s only so he doesn’t have to celebrate his own Independence Day with anyone else! After all this waiting, I think he deserves his own day.

    Still, I think what Bill Pullman as President Whitmore, meant to say is…

    The 4th 5th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday. But as the day when the world declared in one voice, we will not go quietly into the night. We will not vanish without a fight. We’re going to live on. We’re going to survive. Today, we celebrate our…

    “INDY-pendence Day!”

      Thanks, Barry. Won’t take him long to fill up his dance card, I suspect 🙂

      You, us and everyone else on the planet, Maree. He took his own sweet time, but gosh…how sweet he is 🙂

Don't leave me hangin'. What's your thoughts?
