Newlyweds Chanel Iman, 27, and Sterling Shepard, 24, are expecting their first child together. They shared the news on Mother’s Day by posting several photos of the mother-to-be’s growing belly.
Iman and Shepard got engaged last winter and had a star-studded wedding at the Beverly Hills Hotel in March. Both the supermodel and NFL player gushed about the new addition to their family. “My baby is making my baby! Happy Mother’s Day @chaneliman I love you, mama,” Shepard posted.
“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!”, Iman wrote under one of her maternity photos.
The photos were taken by James Macari and feature the couple topless, wearing blue jeans and Calvin Klein underwear. In one shot Shepard gently kisses his wife’s belly.
Congratulations to the parents-to-be.
