Chanel Iman shared some exciting pregnancy news on social media.
On Saturday, June 23, 2018, the Victoria’s Secret model took to Instagram to reveal the sex of her baby. “It’s a GIRL 🌸🎀💗,” she simply captioned a sweet snapshot of herself and her husband, New York Giants star Sterling Shepard, sitting on a pink and gold couch.
As Smash Block TV previously reported, Iman, 27, and Shepard, 24, announced that they were expecting their first child together in May 2018. At the time, the supermodel gushed to her fans, “We both are blessed in many different ways, that our love has created a wonderful new life and can’t wait for this ultimate blessing to arrive. We thank God for allowing us this opportunity to become parents and can’t wait to hold our baby in our arms!”
According to E! News, the married pair also celebrated their baby shower with their closest friends and family over the weekend in the football pro’s native state of Oklahoma. The couple, who tied the knot in March following a four-month engagement, have been together since November 2016.
Iman isn’t the only Victoria’s Secret Angel to recently share baby news with the world. Earlier this month, Candice Swanepoel became a mom of two after welcoming her second son with fiancé Hermann Nicoli. Swanepoel, 29, and Nicoli, 35, first announced they were expecting again last December. The proud parents, who became engaged in August 2015 after 10 years of dating, welcomed their eldest son, Anacã, in October the following year.
“Motherhood isn’t always easy but it’s the most rewarding, powerful thing I’ve ever experienced, so many different emotions each and every day,” the model wrote on Instagram in honor of Mother’s Day this year. “Sending love to all the mamas out there, we are all just winging it and doing the best we can do. There is no formula to being a good mom. Just love with all your being.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
