Supermodel Chanel Iman, NFL Star Sterling Shepard Welcome First Child

Supermodel Chanel Iman and her NFL star husband, Sterling Shepard, are officially parents!

On Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018, the Victoria's Secret model took to Instagram to announce the birth of the happy couple's first child together, daughter Cali Clay Shepard. The married pair welcomed their baby girl on Friday, Aug. 10.

"You were worth every push every contraction! Welcome to our world @caliclayshepard," Iman wrote with a heart emoji, captioning a snapshot of the family-of-three lying together in her hospital bed. "Love mommy and daddy @sterl_shep3." For his part, Shepard posted a similar pic of the trio, writing, "Everything I do is for you two. My world!"

The proud parents also shared the same photos on an Instagram account created for their little bundle of joy. "All because two people feel in love," they captioned the first photo, complete with three heart emojis. They simply wrote, "8•10•18," alongside the second post.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Iman, 27, and Shepard, 24, first revealed that they were expecting their first kid together in May 2018. At the time, the supermodel gushed to her fans, "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!" The couple, who have been together since November 2016, tied the knot in March 2018 following a four-month engagement. In late June, they revealed the sex of their baby.

A number of other celebrity couples have shared exciting baby announcements of their own in recent weeks. Singer Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato welcomed their third child together, a baby girl named Vida Amber Betty Bublé, in late July 2018. Meanwhile, country music star Jason Aldean and wife Brittany Kerr are already expecting baby no. 2 after welcoming their first child together, son Memphis, last December. 

Congratulations to Iman and Shepard on their baby news!
