Annie, Matt Grevers Welcome Third Child, First Boy: Gideon Grevers
Annie and Matt Grevers welcomed their third child into the world on Sunday. Gideon Grevers is the couple’s first boy.
“Gideon Andrew Grevers zoomed into the world on 3/19/23 at the modest weight of 9lbs13oz. We arrived at the hospital at 4 pm, went home disappointed at 6 pm, thinking we could have another week. My water broke at 9 pm and Giddy stormed into the world at 10:15 pm. He has the two proudest big sisters on planet earth,” Annie Grevers posted on Instagram. ” I maybe slept one hour last night because of vital checks but also by choice, because there’s nothing like the afterglow of having a brand new human. The miracle of it all is too much to comprehend. So very thankful for this new life God has entrusted to us. We named him Gideon because we like the name and alliteration 🙂 and Andrew because we think his uncle is a really wonderful guy. Can’t wait for you to meet our little Giddy guy. 💙 also, shout out to my incredible dad who has played nanny all week as his miserably pregnant daughter moped around attempting to induce labor every day in every way. We sure do love you, Papa!”
