DINWIDDE COUNTY, Va. – The Virginia couple whose pregnancy story went viral is celebrating their son’s 3-month birthday.

Little Kaleb Arkell Graves was born at just 24 weeks.

It seemed the whole country celebrated when his mom, Dana Griffin-Graves, announced the unexpected news.

The precious moment was captured in a viral video in September. Arkell wept openly when he learned that after 17 years of trying, they were going to have a baby.

Dana and Arkell said on their Facebook page that they are so proud of how far baby Kaleb has come.

“We never know our strength until we are faced with adversities and we never know the impact we make until we know and understand our purpose,” they wrote on Facebook.

Kaleb weighed just 13 ounces when he was born. Now, he weighs 3 pounds, 6 ounces.

The couple has chronicled Kaleb’s progress on Facebook since his birth.

“We are humbled by this and grateful for each of you,” they wrote.
