Chanel Iman Welcomes Her First Child With NFL Husband Sterling Shepard
She’s here! Chanel Iman, 27, and New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard delivered the news that their baby girl named Cali Clay Shepard made her debut on Friday, August 10th.
The supermodel was the first to share the joyous news on her Instagram. Sharing a picture of the new family of three Chanel posted a picture of her holding her princess in her hospital bed while Sterling is laying alongside his two ladies.
Gushing, the model captioned the post, “You were worth every push every contraction! Welcome to our world @caliclayshepard. Love mommy and daddy." (Looks like Cali might be the youngest member of Instagram with her very own account).
Shepard soon after went to his social media sharing a picture of his wife and daughter. The new papa wrote, “Everything I do is for you two. My world!"
Iman opened up in June about the anticipation of her baby girl’s arrival and how childbirth was a little unnerving for the model. The new mother revealed her hubby has been her rock and has exuded nothing but confidence during the whole pregnancy process leading up to the birth of their daughter.
“I feel like he can be a doctor because he’s really good with being around any situation. I’m not as comfortable with the whole idea of labor. “I’m a little nervous, but he seems to have a lot more confidence in me."
Chanel first announced that she and her beau Sterling Shepard were expecting their first child together back in May on Mother’s Day. In an Instagram post, the model is cradling her baby bump. Chanel wrote alongside the picture, “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."
