Nick Vujicic and wife are expecting their second child
Limbless Christian evangelist Nick Vujicic and his wife Kanae are expecting their second child!
Vujicic made the announcement on his Facebook account with two photos of him, his wife and son Kiyoshi enjoying some quality time together. Kiyoshi had on a "MOST AWESOME BIG BROTHER" long-sleeved shirt and the whole family had huge smiles plastered on their faces.
Vujicic wrote, "What's that on Kiyoshi's shirt?? Indeed Kiyoshi will be the MOST AWESOME BIG BROTHER!!! We (are) roughly twelve weeks pregnant!! Thank You Lord for this precious and amazing gift and blessing!! Thank you all for your love, prayers and support!"
The couple had their first son in February 2013. Vujicic, who born with no limbs, has come a long way since his troubled childhood. When he was only eight, he reportedly contemplated suicide because of his physical limitations until he found God's grace and turned his life around.
Now, aside from happily expecting another child, his short film The Butterfly Circus (2009) will be turned into a full movie version, Variety reported.
The film is about a circus troupe travelling across the American landscape during the Great Depression. When they chance upon a man without limbs who is being exploited, they convince him to join their troupe. The short film has been streamed over 40 million times and continues to grow by one million views monthly since it was first released.
"'The Butterfly Circus' is a magical exploration of the transformative power of hope, love and redemption," said producers Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming. "Its vast global audience of fans, which includes the faith and values community that so strongly supported films like 'Unbroken' and 'The Blind Side,' creates a powerful foundation for the feature almost unheard of for a film not based on a best-selling book or established brand."
The full-length film will be written Josh and Rebekah Wiegel and Josh will also be directing the film. Casting for the film is still being set, and shooting will start sometime this 2015.
