April Beckner and Drew Drechsel are expecting their first baby in December.
Gym owner. Trainer. Top American Ninja Warrior. Drew Drechsel has quite the resumé and busy life. And it’s about to get a whole lot busier!
On Friday, Drew took to Instagram to announce that he and April Beckner, his girlfriend, are expecting a baby boy in December! April is also a Ninja Warrior trainer at New Era Ninjas in Connecticut. The Ninja Warrior life is starting before birth for this little guy! One day he could have Mom AND Dad as coaches!
The cuteness is already about as real as it gets. LOOK AT THIS TEENY TINY OUTFIT!
Drew has faced some pretty daunting challenges and obstacles on the show. But he’s now getting ready for by far the biggest challenge and adventure yet!

Thank you everyone for the all the congratulations and kind messages! That was by far Drews most liked photo ( actual photo posted here ) and we are enamored by all the positive responses To answer some questions we’ve been getting… We are expecting a baby BOY! He is due the 1st of December. We’ve known for a little over 2 months now. It was definitely a surprise for us but we are really excited as we may not be married but there’s no doubt that we are truly in love and and are unconditionally committed to each other. We’ve already planned for kids in our future so I guess that future is here, and we our embracing this next step of our lives with true excitement! I’m at 14 weeks and have been lucky enough to have had fairly easy time with little morning sickness. I don’t think Ashe has accepted being a big sister yet, she gets very grumpy when I move her from my stomach to my lap. We have tossed around a couple names, but we have not decided anything yet… we have decided we’re not telling anyone until he’s born so you’ll have to be patient And as exciting as it will be to have a ninja baby, we will be supportive of whatever he decides to do or be!
We can say for sure that Drew will be making a return to the National Finals this year, as we just saw him win the Speed Pass at the Atlanta Qualifiers. Now more than ever before, he’s got a big reason to want to put that $1 million in the bank! We hear diaper bills rack up pretty quickly.
Congratulations to April and Drew! We wish them a smooth pregnancy and healthy little guy before the holidays!
