A ‘Heavenly Moment’: Ryan Sheckler And Wife Welcome First Child Together

By Movieguide® Contributor

Pro skateboarder Ryan Sheckler and his wife Abigail have just welcomed their first child!

Olive Oleta was born March 3, which also happens to be the couple’s wedding anniversary. Ryan and Abigail wed in 2022 after a 90-day engagement. 

“I am head over heels in love with this baby!” Abigail said in a statement to People. “I know I should be trying to get sleep when she is napping but I just can’t stop staring at her hoping that time would stop so I can stay in this heavenly moment forever!”

The couple also talked about how they chose their baby’s name. 

“We considered a few names, but Olive kept coming up in church, and we loved how the olive branch symbolizes peace, so we went with it,” Ryan explained. “Her middle name is Oleta, after my late grandma, who was a huge part of my life. Abigail and I call her Double O Shecks and Ollie O, and I’m sure we will come up with many more nicknames in the future!”

Ryan has been very open about his faith and how it helped him overcome the pressures of fame at a young age, as well as substance abuse issues. 

“I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the Lord,” he explained. “And it’s a struggle. But if you really submit and give your life to Christ and just really believe daily that you get another chance, you can make some good decisions.”

He continued, “You know, I grew up as a Christian. I went to church. I believed. But I didn’t understand what it meant to really believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I had heard that. And I knew about that. But I didn’t know, I didn’t feel it. I didn’t really feel that when I envisioned it. And when I really got deep into my mind visualizing the Lord and Him on the cross and bleeding, that’s when it hit me. That’s when it hit me that I really am forgiven for my sins, like, I’m forgiven daily and do not waste it.”
