Chanel Iman Reveals She’s Expecting First Child With Husband Sterling Shepard (PHOTOS)
This Victoria's Secret Angel is awaiting her first little angel!
Just months after saying her vows, Chanel Iman revealed she and her football star husband Sterling Shepard would be expecting their first child. The model broke the news in a revealing Instagram snap baring her baby bump on Mother's Day (May 13).
"Daddy and Mommy can't wait to meet you," she captioned the sepia-toned image, all smiles and flaunting her blooming belly. "As I approach motherhood I want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all mothers and mommies to be."
In another set of images shared on the platform, the 27-year-old cover girl poses, topless and belly exposed, in Calvin Klein underwear and denim jeans alongside the New York Giants athlete.
"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," the model mommy-to-be wrote. "We thank God for allowing us this opportunity to become parents and can’t wait to hold our baby in our arms!"
The Georgia native's maternity news arrives only two months after she and Shepard wed in a majestic ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles on March 3, where Iman was joined by celebrity gal pals Gabrielle Union and Jourdan Dunn.
"Dreams do come true," the runway star captioned a pic from her private wedding, beaming in a delicate dove-colored Zuhair Murad dress with rose gold gemstones.
"So in love with you," Iman inscribed another beautiful photo captured of her in Shepard's passionate embrace.
Iman and the wide began their relationship after meeting at a birthday shindig back in November 2016. After a year of dating, the couple got engaged in December 2017, sharing the special announcement to the world on Instagram.
“A night full of tears of happiness,” the model inscribed in the celebratory post on December 2. “I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you [Sterling Shepard] you are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything! Can’t wait to be your Mrs."
