Chanel Iman debuts baby bump after announcing she’s expecting her first baby

Chanel Iman has made her first public appearance since announcing the news that she is pregnant with her first child.

The Victoria’s Secret model debuted her burgeoning bump on the red carpet at the CFDA Awards in New York City on Monday night.

Chanel, who is almost eight months pregnant, wore a figure-hugging black custom gown by US designer Nicole Miller, which perfectly showed off her blossoming belly.

Proudly cradling her bump, she shared a photo of her evening on Instagram, simply captioning it: ’30 weeks’.

It was only last month that the 27-year-old revealed that she and her husband, NFL star Sterling Shepard, were expecting their first child in a topless Instagram post.

‘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,’ she captioned the image.

After news of her impending motherhood broke, fans quickly congratulated the model, with one commenting: ‘That is going to be a beautiful child!’

Another said: ‘This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen’.

In another post, which sees her and Sterling lying topless on the floor as he reaches down to kiss her belly, she said: ‘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!’

A third photo also sees Iman bearing all in a black and white snap taken by photographer James Macari. She captioned it: ‘Our fairytale continues as we wait for the birth of our baby. Our love grows each day, @sterl_shep3 and I can’t wait to share it with our little one.’

Chanel and her New York Giants beau wed in early March at the Beverly Hills Hotel after becoming engaged in December last year.
