Oh baby! A month after announcing their pregnancy on Mother’s Day, Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard revealed they are expecting a little girl.
The supermodel and mom-to-be (and our June/July cover star!) posted photos to Instagram from her baby shower, which was decked out in pink. “It’s A GIRL,” Iman captioned a photo of her and her NFL hubby cuddled up on a plush pink velvet couch.
According to Instagram, Shepard’s family threw the shower for the soon-to-be parents in his home state of Oklahoma. According to E! News, in addition to an array of pink cakes, the shower was decked out in pink roses, a flower wall with an “oh baby!” sign, and a clothesline full of new threads for their future daughter.
The couple initially revealed they were expecting by posting images from their pregnancy photo shoot. "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," Iman wrote on Instagram. "We thank God for allowing us this opportunity to become parents and can’t wait to hold our baby in our arms!"
For these newlyweds, the last year has been quite a whirlwind. Shepard proposed to Iman on her 27th birthday in December and they quickly tied the knot earlier this year in a beautiful flower-filled ceremony on March 3.
The bride wore two stunning Zuhair Murad gowns and the groom did a quick change from a black to white tuxedo jacket. The wedding was widely attended by the couple’s celebrity friends including Chrissy Teigen, Jourdan Dunn, Odell Beckham Jr.,Tiffany Haddish and Gabrielle Union just to name a few.
