Kelly Slater and Kalani Miller announced they are expecting a baby. It's a boy.

The 11-time world surfing champion and California-born swimwear entrepreneur Kalani Miller are going to be parents.

The couple broke the news in a collaborated black-and-white Instagram Reel posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, to Ben Harper's "The Three of Us."

Interestingly, March 19 is Father's Day in many countries.

Slater, 52, and Miller, 36, will have their first child together. The soon-to-be mother will give birth to her first child in 2024.

The American surfer has a daughter from a previous relationship with Tamara Michelle.

Taylor Slater-Kelleher was born on June 6, 1996. She has gained recognition as both a photographer and a painter.

Kelly and Kalani have been dating since 2008.

They met at a Quiksilver booth in California when Slater was competing in Lower Trestles and Miller and her sisters were working in Roxy.

Miller once revealed she would love to have two or three children with the professional surfer.

A Business Couple

Kalani runs her company, Mikoh, with her sister, Oleema.

Their line embodies their vision of modern swimwear for women, drawing inspiration from their experiences living in bikinis and exploring oceans worldwide.

Oleema, a former professional surfer, leads as the creative director and designer of Mikoh, infusing her extensive travels since age 13 into the brand's aesthetic.

Meanwhile, Kalani utilizes her education to manage the business side of Mikoh.

The brand's name is a fusion of their surname, Miller, and the initials of the sisters along with their younger sister's name, Hana.

Additionally, "Miko" originates from Japanese, signifying "female shaman" or "female prophecy."

Kelly Slater is the greatest professional surfer of all time.

The Floridian holds the records for being the youngest (1992) and oldest (2011) men's world surfing champion at 20 and 38 years old, respectively.

Kelly Slater's business ventures include Kelly Slater Wave Co. (wave pools), Outerknown (apparel), Slater Designs (surfboards), Firewire (surfboards), Endorfins (surfboard fins), Solento Tequila (beverages), KLLY (sandals), and others.
