Chanel Iman is ringing in Mother's Day by announcing that she is a mom-to-be!

The 27-year-old Victoria's Secret model announced the exciting news that she is expecting her first child with New York Giants wide receiver and husband Sterling Shepard, 24. Iman posted a sweet photo of herself showing off her baby bump on Instagram earlier today with the caption, "Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you. As I approach motherhood I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and mommies to be ❤️ "

She posted a second photo later in the day of she and her husband posing in blue jeans. "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 mom-to-be wrote in the caption. "We thank God for allowing us this opportunity to become parents and can’t wait to hold our baby in our arms! ❤️"

The soon-to-be parents just tied the knot in early March in a stunning wedding ceremony after a four-month engagement. Iman, who is the Brides June/July issue cover star, stunned in a Zuhair Murad wedding gown when she walked down the aisle.

"I was walking toward the man of my dreams," Iman told Brides of her big day. "When I saw him tearing up, I almost started bawling myself."

The superstar couple's wedding included a handful of a-list celebrity guests, including friends Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union, Odell Beckham Jr., Tiffany Haddish, and Shanina Shaik.

Shepard originally popped to the question to his now-wife back in December. He surprised Iman with a stunning rose gold sparkler on Iman's 27th birthday, which she later showed off on Instagram.

The couple have yet to announce the due date or gender of the baby, but with a supermodel mom and football star dad, we can only imagine how talented baby Shepard will be!
