Back in March, former Victoria's Secret model Chanel Iman married Sterling Shepard in a stunning ceremony in Los Angeles whilst wearing a dress by Middle Eastern designer Zuhair Murad. And now, the model has more happy news following her announcement overnight.

Yesterday was Mother's Day in the US and to celebrate, Chanel announced that she and Sterling are expecting their first child together. Taking to Instagram to reveal the happy news via three images, the model wrote in one of the captions, "We both are blessed in many different ways, that our love has created a wonderful new life and can't wait for this ultimate blessing to arrive. We thank God for allowing us this opportunity to become parents and can't wait to hold our baby in our arms." 

Speaking with E! News following the social media reveal, the pair said, "Our focus has always been on love and family and we look forward to instilling these qualities in our little one. We are truly blessed!" 

Congratulations to the happy couple!
