Model Chanel Iman revealed the gender of baby number two on Sunday. The 29-year-old took to Instagram and made the revelation that her second baby is going to be a girl.
Chanel and her husband, Sterling Shepherd, 26, held a baby shower to celebrate the soon-to-arrive daughter, and Iman made the announcement using a photo from the event. The snap shows Chanel, the 26-year-old wide receiver of the New York Giants, and their one-year-old daughter, Cali Clay, at the baby shower. The pregnant model wrote a caption with the snap stating that they were about to have the blessing of another baby girl, who is on the way.
E!News revealed that the 29-year-old prepared a winter wonderland themed shower for the unborn that incorporated the colours gold, pink, and white in the balloons and other decors. They also had containers full of colourful candy, a three-tier naked cake from Sweet Keet, and a station for hot chocolate. The attending friends and family put on pastel pink pyjamas from Le Rose that complimented the theme of the party and obtained matching purses as event gifts. Chanel wore a white lace maxi dress that showed off her cute baby bump and fit with the all-round décor.
The baby shower reflected the excited and happy mood of the family of four, as they get ready for the new arrival. The Dope actress also initially announced about the pregnancy back in August through a post on her Instagram account in which she wrote about the excitement she felt at soon becoming a family of four. She also posted a cute family photo of her husband, daughter, and herself with a growing baby bump.
Iman and Shepherd got married in March 2018 in a private ceremony with friends and family at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The couple then welcomed their firstborn, Cali, five months after the wedding. Chanel announced her pregnancy a few days after the family celebrated Cali’s one-year birthday.
Fans showed their support through several congratulatory messages to Chanel's announcements about her pregnancy and gender reveal. Such a show of support to someone's important and exciting news is especially heartwarming. The baby shower that the model and her football star husband held reflected how happy the pair's friends and family are about her pregnancy. A baby is a blessing, and people showing such appreciation to Chanel's announcements shows that they understand the significance of being a parent.
