The couple is expecting their first child after battling health issues through the years.

When Austin was 10, he was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari Malformation and has undergone 19 brain surgeries. The condition means his brain tissue extends into his spinal canal, which can cause muscle weakness and numbness. He also has an arachnoid cyst on his brain, which he has a shunt in place for.

Steffaney was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and, at first, doctors told them they may not be able to conceive. But after going to a fertility doctor, they found out they were pregnant.

“We have decided to use this opportunity as a chance to share our story and the works of God so that others might have hope,” Steffaney told INSIDE EDITION.

“Some people may think the timing of our pregnancy might not be ideal, given where Austin is health wise, but we know that it is all part of God’s plan for us and we could not be more thrilled!”

She said she believes Austin’s positivity helped.
