A Man Slammed for Getting a Disabled Woman Pregnant, Shows What a Strong Family They’ve Formed
Alex and Noah are defying expectations and pushing boundaries with their love story. Their lives took an incredible turn when they welcomed their beloved baby. Despite the challenges during her pregnancy, Alex overcame them, even in the face of criticism for having a child given her disability.
They knew they wanted a baby right from the start.
Alex is an extraordinary woman, fighting the daily battles that come with a rare condition called spinal muscular atrophy. This disease affects her every day, making even the simplest tasks a struggle. But her strength and resilience shine through.
In a world where disability can sometimes mean isolation, Alex found love on a dating app. She met Noah, and they clicked right from their very first date. Their love story defied all odds.
Although their journey wasn’t without its hurdles, it was a powerful testament to the strength of their relationship. Alex and Noah candidly admitted that their families had initial reservations about their union. Alex faced skepticism from her own family, while Noah’s family struggled to comprehend his relationship with a disabled person. However, as time passed, and they got to know Alex, their skepticism gradually gave way to acceptance and kindness.
Over a year passed, and their love only grew stronger. They surprised everyone when, just seven months into their relationship, they announced they were expecting their first child. Even though it seemed to be too “early” or “rushed”, both Noah and Alex were convinced that it was the right choice in their journey.
However, due to her disability, the whole pregnancy was not a smooth path for Alex, and neither for Noah who had to stay by her side day and night.
Alex typically depended on medication to cope with her disability. However, during her pregnancy, she had to put her treatment on hold, with Noah taking on the role of her full-time caregiver. Striking the right balance wasn’t easy, but they succeeded, demonstrating that with the right people by your side, there are no limits to what you can overcome in the face of disability.
Besides the pregnancy challenges, they had to deal with critics, and Noah, in particular.
In a video where she documented her pregnancy, Alex held up three positive pregnancy tests, and it was a roller coaster of emotions for the soon-to-be mom. They hadn’t exactly planned for this, so there was a mix of surprise and excitement. Noah, her partner, couldn’t hide his own jumble of feelings — they were excited, sure, but also nervous about what lay ahead.
And it wasn’t just the usual pregnancy worries that filled their heads. Alex had her own unique challenges because of her condition. She’d have to be intubated during delivery, which, for someone with her condition, was risky. But she had this incredible trust in her medical team, believing they’d do everything possible to make sure her baby would be healthy.
With Alex’s prominent presence on social media, they were thrilled to take their followers on this incredible journey. As they posted about their pregnancy; they received an outpouring of support from many well-wishers who were genuinely happy for them. However, amid the well-wishers, a dark cloud of negativity began to creep in with certain comments.
Some people were all eager for their ultrasound scan, but instead of cheering, they threw doubt at them, suspecting that the pregnancy was fake. When it was finally time for that first ultrasound, it felt like they had to prove themselves to the world. For Alex, this was the most hate she’d ever seen on social media: people were asking what Alex would do if Noah left her, and some even went so far as to say her pregnancy should be “illegal,” making her doubt her ability to care for her future child.
But here’s the thing, all that hate and doubt just made Alex and Noah stronger. They didn’t let it get in the way of their excitement for this next chapter in their lives as a family of three. They wanted their love story to be a shining example of the different kinds of relationships out there.
Just like any other couple, they wanted everyone to know that they were absolutely worthy of love and building a family together. So, to all the haters, Alex had a powerful message: “We are not going anywhere.” And they meant it. Their love and determination were unbreakable, real proof of the strength of their bond.
People also slammed Noah for dating a disabled woman.
Besides the hard pregnancy journey, right from the start of their love story, Noah often felt uncomfortable because of the constant stares they received in public. It was like people couldn’t help but stare at Alex. For her, those stares were just another part of her daily life — she’d grown used to them.
But their relationship wasn’t just subject to judgment in the real world; it was also under a harsh spotlight on social media. Some people accused Noah of having a “disability fetish.” They assumed he couldn’t genuinely love Alex, both physically and romantically, and that his attraction to her was just some kind of weird fascination.
But Alex, the strong and wise woman that she was, had an eloquent response to these accusations. She made it clear that the assumption was that disabled people aren’t seen as sexually appealing, a prejudice that she was more than willing to shatter with her own love story.
Their beautiful bundle of love
Alex’s announcement of the arrival of their baby girl, Ari Jacqueline Smith, on March 6, 2023, was a moment of pure joy and emotion. Born at 34 weeks and two days, this tiny miracle was the embodiment of their love.
Holding her daughter for the first time was an experience that left Alex speechless. She couldn’t find the words to describe the overwhelming rush of emotion. In a touching video, she shared the sight of little Ari cradled in her arms, her eyes closed, as if savoring every second of this precious moment. “I love this little human with my entire heart,” she expressed, and it was evident in every glance, every smile, and every touch.
Instagram was flooded with love and support for the new family. With confidence and an abundance of love in their hearts, Alex and Noah were ready to embrace this new chapter of parenthood. As Alex put it, “We’re very caring, loving people, and we have the resources and love in our hearts to be able to raise a baby. We’re very confident in that.”
