Supermodel and now a proud mother!
Congratulations are in order for Chanel Iman and her NFL star husband Sterling Shepard, who welcomed their first child, a baby girl, on Friday (August 10). Over the weekend, the Victoria's Secret Angel took to Instagram to share the happy news with her 1 million-plus followers, sharing a heartwarming first-look picture of her daughter - Cali Clay Shepard.
Iman shared the adorable picture, showing the new mother and father cuddled alongside the newborn, on the picture-sharing site on Monday. The 27-year-old model later followed up the cute family photo with another post, this time offering a close-up of her baby girl who already has her very own Instagram page with over 4000 followers.
"Cali Clay Shepard 💕🎀💕 8•10•18," Iman wrote alongside the sweet snap, which was also shared by the New York Giants wide receiver on his official page. Sharing a first glimpse of the newborn, however, the footballer dad shared: "Everything I do is for you two. My world!"
It has been quite a roller coaster ride for the supermodel and the NFl star, who got married earlier this year in a posh Beverly Hills ceremony, where fellow supermodel Jourdan Dunn even served as one of Chanel's bridesmaid. During their baby show in June, however, the couple was already expecting as they went on to reveal the gender of their baby at the event.
"I'm feeling great," the mother-to-be had told E! News in June at the 2018 CFDA Awards. "My first trimester was very difficult but now I'm so much better." As it turns out, her excitement was shared by her footballer husband as well, who has been proactive with asking his coach for some off time. Shepard shared, “He was like, ‘We’ll see if we can get you a day off or something’ ... I don’t want to be away from the guys, but that type of stuff, you have to be there for that.”
“I’m super excited about it. 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,” he had dished at the time.
