Mother’s Day had a very special meaning for model Chanel Iman who is expecting her first child with football star Sterling Shepard.
Iman shared with the world intimate pics of her baby bump on social media 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. @jamesmacari,” she wrote while also tagging the photographer on Sunday.
The pics were exclusively released to Us Weekly and show Iman shirtless with Shepard. Both are wearing jeans with Iman wearing a pair of Calvin Klein undies that peek out above her jeans and below her belly.
Iman glows in another picture with a flowy white shirt.
The 27-year-old Victoria’s Secret beauty wed New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard in December. She and her groom tied the knot just four months after their dreamy engagement in Beverly Hills.
The exclusive coverage of the celebrity wedding by Brides.com confirms that it was a star-studded event with guests Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union and Odell Beckham Jr.
According to the report, it was over-the-top with “flowers upon flowers” and the whole thing came together in just under three months.
As for Chanel Iman’s bridal gown, the final dress decision came down to Zuhair Murad, a Lebanese fashion designer that she has reportedly worn on the red carpet several times.
The groom went for a traditional tux, but Chanel Iman had a different idea for the reception. “We threw the rulebook out for the reception,” she said to Brides, “and shook things up a little with a fun jacket and shoe change for Sterling before he hit the dance floor!”
She shared wedding pics on social media with the caption: “Dreams do come @sterl_shep3 @brides @amyandstuart @mindyweiss,” she wrote, captioning other posts, “So in love with you @sterl_shep3” and “The Shepard’s.”
Congrats to the happy couple on their first baby.
