Chanel Iman And Sterling Shepard Welcome First Child
Supermodel Chanel Iman and New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard announced the birth of their first child on Instagram Sunday. Chanel Iman, who gave birth Aug. 10, also created an Instagram account for her daughter.
Yes, the adorable newborn already has her very own Instagram account! As of 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 12, she already had 3,627 followers.
Shepard posted one of the hospital shots on his Instagram page as well. “Everything I do is for you two. My world,” he captioned the family photo.
Fans flooded Iman’s, Shepard’s, and Cali’s Instagram accounts with congratulatory messages in the comments sections.
“You were worth every push every contraction! Welcome to our world @caliclayshepard,” the 27-year-old said. “Love mommy and daddy @sterl_shep3.”
Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard met at Victor Cruz’s birthday party in 2016 and got engaged 13 months later. After just four months, the couple tied the knot at the Beverly Hill Hotel in March, with supermodel Jourdan Dunn serving as one of Chanel’s bridesmaid. This year, on Mother’s Day, E! News announced Chanel’s pregnancy. “Our focus has always been on love and family and we look forward to instilling these qualities in our little one,” the couple said. “We are truly blessed!”
At the 2018 CFDA Awards in June, a six-months pregnant Chanel Iman told E! News correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi she was doing “good” after a rough couple of months. “I’m feeling great,” the glowing mom-to-be said. “My first trimester was very difficult but now I’m so much better.”
Further details about Cali’s birth, such as her weight, height, and time of birth, have not yet been announced.
