Man who lost legs in Boston bombing is an expectant father

Jeff Bauman, the man who helped authorities identify the suspects of the Boston Marathon bombings after he lost his legs has announced that now he is engaged. Not only that but together with his soon to be wife they are expecting a baby.

He and his 27-year-old fiancée Erin Hurley expect to become parents on July 14.

Nor the 28-year-old man nor his future wife know the sex of the child to come as they want this to be a surprise for them. The two engaged in February this year and plan to have their marriage next year. In order to prepare for the baby's arrival Bauman and Hurley painted a nursery in their home.

In regards to their baby medics say that the pregnancy is going well and that the baby and the future mom are healthy. When reporters asked Erin Hurley why they are marrying next year instead of doing this in 2014 the woman responded "We've got a lot going on. So we don't need to do everything all at once".
