Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard’s Mother’s Day celebration will be hard to top!
On Sunday, the couple announced they are expecting their first baby together with a series of black and white photos debuting her growing belly. The model took to social media to share the happy news with her followers.
“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,” reads one of Iman’s Instagram posts. “We thank God for allowing us this opportunity to become parents and can’t wait to hold our baby in our arms!”
The first picture shows Chanel looking down and smiling at her already-noticeable bump. In the second one, the model and her new hubby are lying shirtless with baggy, unbuttoned jeans and Calvin Klein branded undies poking out, with Shepard planting a kiss on Iman’s belly. She finally shared a solo snap of her, wearing nothing but a robe that partially shows her baby bump.
The former Victoria Secret’s Angel and the New York Giants wide receiver tied the knot at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles on early March after enjoying a relatively short three-month engagement. The ceremony was attended by their family and closest friends only, including Jourdan Dunn, Chrissy Teigen, Odell Beckham Jr, among other football stars and celebrities.
The soon-to-be-parents met at Victor Cruz’ birthday celebration November 2016 and it was love at first sight. Shepard’s teammate reportedly invited Iman to his party and that’s when the two met and instantly connected.
