In the intimate family photo shoot captured on video, Iman, Godchaux (who also has a son from a previous partner), and Iman’s two young daughters, Cali and Cassie, celebrate and cheer as pink and white streamers are released from cannons around them.

“A sister, you’re getting a sister! You’re getting a sister!” Iman exclaims as she celebrates with her daughters and Godchaux. 

Speaking directly to the camera, Iman added, “I’m having a girl, guys! A third head to do every morning! I can’t wait to do your hair!”

Before the big reveal, Godchaux and Iman, dressed in matching white linen (she in a crop top and skirt and he in pants and shirt), expressed their wishes for the gender. Godchaux hoped for a girl, while Iman admitted she was “hoping for a boy.” 

“If it’s a girl, I’m already a girl mom, so she’ll just be another queen!” Iman said. “We’re so excited to be parents. … We are blessed to have a child together, and whatever God blesses us with, we are very grateful and happy.”

Future big sisters Cali, 4, and Cassie, 3, were dressed in matching pink crotchet floral dresses with flower crowns. The two were also split equally, with Cali hoping for a boy and Cassie hoping for a girl. 

After the reveal, Godchaux and Iman expressed their excitement to meet their future daughter. 

“I just want to tell my baby I love you, can’t wait to meet you,” Godchaux said. “Proud dad already. Can’t wait to see you!”

Iman added, “And I would like to tell our daughter that I love you so much, and I’m just so grateful to be your mother. You have an amazing father, and together we will raise you. … Can’t wait to see you. We are going to raise you to be great!”

For Mother’s Day, Iman shared a few images from the shoot with Cali and Cassie on Instagram. The post’s caption read, “[Mother’s Day] keeps getting better. I will be a mommy of 3 🙌🏾 Thank you God for giving me everything I have prayed for 🙏🏽.”
