His wife also shared the same video on her social media account, along with a message that even if a person is “suffering to never give up hope.”

“If I’ve learned anything over the last 2 years, it’s that I do not have as much control as I think I do,” Granger’s wife wrote.

“Never did I think at 39 I would be blessed with expecting another baby boy,” she added. “These past couple of years have been so rough but also so full of so much joy, hope, healing, growing and grace from God.”

“Sweet Riv, because of the beautiful life you lived, we are forever changed and we will continue honoring your big, little legacy until we come home to you,” Amber continued.

In June 2019, Granger revealed that his, River, had accidentally drowned in the family’s pool. Smith and Amber are also parents of two children, London Smith and Lincoln Monarch Smith.
