‘Win a Baby’ Contest Winners Have a Boy

Every day people come up with unconventional ways to create a family and this happens to be one of those.

Back in 2017 a radio sweepstakes helped a Cape Coral couple start their own family.

B103.9 held a ‘Win a Baby’ contest in which the winner gets a round of in vitro fertilization treatments and required medication. Winners Krista and Anthony Rivera are now known as Mom and Dad!

Fox 4 talked with the new parents and got the story. “When we thought we couldn’t have a baby, it was crushing,” said Krista.

Things made an unexpected turn a few years ago. “Out of nowhere, we got the news that I was diagnosed with testicular cancer,” said Anthony. Their only option was IVF treatment but it’s expensive. Then they won the ‘Win a Baby’ contest.

“Without the contest, we definitely would not have been able to have our dream of having a baby,” said Krista.

Their baby boy, Garrett is now 3 months old and they are forever grateful for this little guy. “I never ever would have thought that three years later, I would be holding my baby boy,” said Anthony.

“This is really a dream come true. we never thought we’d have our miracle and we’re so happy to have our little family,” said Krista. They said Garrett is truly a miracle because the IVF process isn’t easy. It turns out one in eight couples have trouble getting pregnant.

They want to inspire other couples who are struggling to get pregnant to never give up hope. “It’s so worth it so keep fighting. I know it’s hard it’s never easy but it’s worth it,” said Krista.
