Dana Griffin-Graves and her husband Arkell had people in tears when they shared their pregnancy announcement just weeks ago.

After four miscarriages and one stillbirth, the couple had given up on having a family of their own. But when Dana surprised Arkell with her “bun in the oven” news, she was already five months along and due in February.

On Tuesday, the pair shared sad news on their Facebook page. The baby had to be delivered at just 24 weeks.

Arkell wrote Dana has been in the hospital for several days and thanked people for their prayers. Several hours later, they posted, “Welcome Baby Kaleb Arkell Graves.”  They have not yet shared an update on how baby or mom are doing.

Dana and Arkell have been married nearly 17 years.
