RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — More than 600 people attended the dedication service of Kaleb ‘Baby Buns’ Graves on Easter Sunday.

Kaleb’s parents, Dana Griffin-Graves and Arkell Graves, held their 1-year-old during the service at Zion Apostolic Temple.

Nearly 2,500 people watched a 28-minute video of Kaleb’s christening that was shared on ‘Baby Buns’ Facebook page.

Baby Buns, as he is known after a viral video showed his mom telling her husband she was pregnant with ‘buns in the oven,’ was born prematurely. He weighed just 13 ounces and doctors weren’t sure he would survive.

Kaleb spent nearly a year in the hospital but is now at home with family. 8News has been following his journey since the beginning.
