We called it!  Newlyweds Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard announced their pregnancy just in time for Mother’s Day!  Get into their gorgeous maternity shoot inside…

Issa baby bump!  Just two months after they tied the knot, model Chanel Iman and Giants baller Sterling Shepard have another life changing situation on their hands. They’re expecting, and they’re now sharing the news with the world.

We spotted a possible baby bump during their wedding festivities, and also wondered if the swiftness of the ceremony – which took place three months after their engagement – meant they were in a hurry because a baby was on the way.  It seems like that may have been the case.

Sterling gushed on Instagram about the good news saying:

"My baby is making my baby! Happy Mother’s Day @chaneliman I love you mama"

And Chanel posted a few gorgeous maternity shots featuring her growing belly and her new hubby:


Our fairytale continues as we wait for the birth of our baby. As our love grows each day, @sterl_shep3 and I can’t wait to share it with our little one @jamesmacari

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! @sterl_shep3 //SWIPE @jamesmacari @monicarosestyle @patrickta @amoycoutureny

The twosome met at Sterling’s teammate Victor Cruz‘s birthday bash in November 2016.  They were engaged about a year later, then married a little over three months after that.


A whirlwind, fairytale romance and a new baby.  Congrats!
