It's a very happy Mother's Day for Chanel Iman!
The Victoria's Secret model announced that she's expecting her first child with her husband, New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard, taking to Instagram on Sunday to share the exciting news.
"Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you," she shared alongside a black-and-white photo of her bare baby bump. "As I approach motherhood I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and mommies to be."
Iman, 27, shared two other snaps from the photoshoot, which also featured Shepard, 24, gently kissing his wife's bare belly.
The happy couple both went topless for the shoot, wearing only faded, destroyed blue jeans and Calvin Klein underwear.
"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 wrote. "We thank God for allowing us this opportunity to become parents and can’t wait to hold our baby in our arms!"
The NFL pro shared the same photo with his fans, writing, "My baby is making my baby! Happy Mother’s Day @chaneliman I love you mama."
Iman and Sterling were married in March March during a romantic Beverly Hills wedding ceremony which included famous guests such as Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union, Joan Smalls, Odell Beckham Jr., Shanina Shaik, Jourdan Dunn and Tiffany Haddish, who happened to deliver an epic toast during the reception.
"Make sure y’all have fun together," Haddish advised the couple. "I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun."
