Chanel Iman delivered a bundle of joy on Friday and is basking in new motherhood after the birth of her daughter Cali Clay Shepard.
The supermodel and her husband, New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard, cuddled up with their new baby girl and posted an adorable pic, sharing the baby news with their Instagram fans.
“You were worth every push every contraction!” wrote Chanel Iman. “Welcome to our world @caliclayshepard ❤️ Love mommy and daddy @sterl_shep3.”
“Everything I do is for you two. My world!” equally proud poppa Sterling wrote.
The Victoria’s Secret beauty wed the NFL player last March in a lavish ceremony in front of family and celebrity friends.
The exclusive coverage of the celebrity wedding by Brides.com confirmed that it was a star-studded event with guests Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union and Odell Beckham Jr.
In May, Chanel Iman shared 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.”
In June, the couple shared the news that the two were having a girl. Shepard has been excited about fatherhood and has reportedly been planning to take some time off so he can connect with baby. In July he spoke about fatherhood in an interview with the New York Post:
“Big steps in my life, that’s for sure,” Shepard told The Post. “It’s difficult at times. You see some of your boys that are your age going out and doing some of the stuff you can’t do. But I think it’s a change for the better. I can’t wait to see my daughter and I love my wife, so I’m loving where I’m at right now.”
Congrats to the new family!
