In a November 16 announcement video posted on social media, Samantha Busch revealed that “Baby Busch” will be born in May 2022 via surrogacy.
“We are so incredibly happy to announce that our baby girl will be joining our family via a gestational carrier in May of 2022!!!!” Samantha wrote in the video’s caption. “Some of the most beautiful things in life come after heartache and a whole lot of prayers. We have dreamed of this day being able to make Brexton a big brother and getting to tell him the exciting news FINALLY was one of the most special moments in life.”
“Thank you everyone who has supported us on our journey and did not give up hope just like we didn’t,” Samantha continued. “We are so beyond grateful that we have the most amazing GC to help us complete our family. We are forever humbled and appreciative to her and to all of you that have sent us so many encouraging messages over the years.”
Just by watching the video below, you can tell that six-year-old Brexton is especially happy to be a big brother!
Samantha Busch, who has been married to the two-time NASCAR Cup Series champ for nearly 11 years, has been extremely open about her and Kyle’s fertility issues. On October 2, 2018, Samantha announced on social media that she and Kyle were going to undergo in vitro fertilization. Providing several updates along the way, including a gender reveal video on November 22, Samantha sadly announced on November 30 that she had suffered a miscarriage.
After unsuccessful IVF and gestational surrogacy attempts in 2019 and another unsuccessful IVF attempt in 2021, the Busch’s strength and determination has finally resulted in happy news.
On March 30, 2021, Samantha released a book called Fighting Infertility, where she opened up about her own struggles and attempted to provide support and perspective for women going through the same issues.
“My goal was to share my experience to normalize infertility and miscarriage and what it does to women and couples on a physical, mental and emotional level,” Samantha wrote in an Instagram post promoting the book back in late October. “Hearing you all say it helped you cope and remain strong, or use it as a tool to educate yourselves and your loved ones humbles me every day.”
The Busch couple also runs the Samantha and Kyle Busch Bundle of Joy Fund, which advocates for infertility awareness and awards financial assistance to couples requiring fertility treatments. The fund has granted nearly $1 million, which has helped support the birth of 46 babies. It’s good works like this that make you feel all the more happy for Samantha and Kyle’s own special bundle of joy coming in 2022.
