It looks like model Chanel Iman is set to deliver the other half of Irish twins!
The IMG model confirmed to US Weekly that her family will grow by one addition when she and hubby New York Giants player Sterling Shepard welcome their second child next year, less than a year before welcoming their last child.
The UK Daily Mailpublished photos of Iman and her daughter with mom bearing a sizeable baby bump.
The couple only just celebrated the one-year birthday of their first child, daughter Cali Clay on August 12 with the most adorable birthday party!
Earlier, Shepard had stated he was anxious to learn what his baby boy would look like, but that his wife wanted to wait until fall 2019. Well here we are!
At the tender age of 3-days old, the baby girl’s Insta was up and running and already has over 7,500 followers! Baby Alexis’ account didn’t go up until the little girl born on September 1 was 16 days old.
She follows behind singer and dancer Teyana Taylor and NBA’s Cleveland Cavalier player Imani Shumpert ‘s daughter Iman Tayla Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr who not only has had a verified account since a baby but is also a female junior, named after her dad — just like Alexis! (Great trend!)
Other celebrity babies with verified Instagram pages include reality TV star, singer and businesswoman Kandi Burruss‘s son Ace Wells Tucker; record-breaking winning Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps; son Boomer Phelps, who has 765,000 followers and, Chanel, daughter to reality TV star Cocoa Austin and her husband Ice T.
Alexis Jr has a verified account of over 435,000 followers and has beat Ace Tucker who had over 425,000 but had 100,000 at just 8 weeks old.
Over the weekend, Victoria Secret model Chanel Iman and her husband New York Giants player Sterling Shepard also celebrated the impending arrival of their first child together at an intimate backyard baby shower in Oklahoma thrown by the leggy brunette’s friends.
The shower’s color theme was pink and Iman revealed that she is expecting a girl on her Instagram sharing photos of the blessed event.
“It’s a GIRL.” The expectant mama posted a picture of she and Sterling sitting on a pink couch outside in a lush yard with pink flowers surrounding the expectant parents.
Earlier this month Chanel attended the Fragrance Foundation Awards in N.Y.C. where she spoke to reporters and admitted that “the first term actually was very difficult” and she “was sick,” adding “I’m super anxious to meet my baby,” and after she got through her rough patch of morning sickness, “my pregnancy has been amazing,”
Hubby also opened up to the New York Post about his excitement of becoming a first-time papa. “I’m super excited about it,” he told the paper. “On game days, I see guys…they have their babies down there, and it’s a warm feeling when you see that. I’m looking forward to it…I can’t wait.”
Chanel Iman is celebrating this Mother’s Day as a mama-to-be!
The Victoria’s Secret Angel is expecting her first child with New York Giants‘ Sterling Shepard.
“Our focus has always been on love and family and we look forward to instilling these qualities in our little one,” Chanel and Sterling exclusively told E! News. “We are truly blessed!”
The model shared the news on social media on Sunday just in time for Mother’s Day. “Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you,” she captioned a photo of herself baring her baby bump. “As I approach motherhood I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and mommies to be.”
As E! News previously reported, the couple wed on March 3 in front of family and friends in a romantic ceremony following a whirlwind four month engagement.
The bride, who was dressed in head-to-toe white while walking down the aisle, flowers in-hand, appeared to be on cloud-nine while saying her I do’s. So happy, in fact, that there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
Back in December, the 25-year-old wide receiver popped to the question with a stunning rose gold sparkler on Iman’s 27th birthday. She later posted a photo to her Instagram account sharing the news.
“A night full of tears of happiness. I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you @sterl_shep3 you are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything!” she wrote at the time. “Can’t wait to be your Mrs.”
After meeting at Victor Cruz‘s birthday party in November 2016, the supermodel began dating the NFL star.
“When I first met him, he was in a suit and looked so sharp,” she revealed to Peoplein August. Shepard added, “I walked up to her and bought her a drink and it was over after that.”
Congrats to the gorgeous couple on their growing family!
