The Gal Who Once Tried To Wrangle Teahupo’o On A Log, Kelia Moniz, Is Totally Preggo!
Forever a World Champion. Soon to be a mama, too.
Gorgeous, charismatic, unbelievably stylish on a surfboard, brave, BFFs with Justin Bieber, and somehow still completely down-to-earth, there’s nothing not to like about Kelia Moniz (AKA Kelia Termini, AKA Sis).
A few years back—following a multi-year relationship with another surf industry lovely, Mitch Crews—Kelia got together with Joe Termini, a New York-based photographer/artist who appears to have major connections in celeb world.
Between trips to faraway atolls, nights spent gallivanting through the city, and hanging with friends and fellow-lovers Justin and Haley Biebs, Kelia and Joe became so emotionally ensnared that they signed a legal contract stating they’d never leave one another’s side, neither in sickness nor in health.
And, well, you know what happens after people get married…
Today, 27-year-old Kelia Moniz announced her pregnancy to 412,000 followers. Responses from the Hawaiian female surf community were as bountiful as they were redundant:
Alana Blanchard: Omg I’m so happy for you guys [heart emojis].
Monica Eleogram (formerly Byrne-Wickey): Cutest pregnant woman ever! You guys are going to be epic parents! I love you both so much [heart emojis]
Bethany Hamilton: [heart emojis]
Alessa Quizon: Super happy for you sister [heart emojis]
Lyndie Irons: Love you [heart-eye emojis]
And with that, Stab would like to send its own heart emojis Sis’s way, wishing her and her family the best in these exciting times.
We look forward to meeting Nephew or Niece very soon.
