Chanel Iman gives birth to baby girl and has already set her up an Instagram account

Victoria Secret model Chanel Iman has given birth to her first child with husband Sterling Shepard.

Chanel debuted her baby bump to the world for the first time in June.

Now, the model has shared the first pictures of her baby girl since giving birth on Friday.

Posting on Instagram Chanel shared a sweet picture showing her led in the hospital bed with her baby on her chest and her husband by her side.

Captioning the photo Chanel revealed the unusual baby name she has chosen for her daughter and linked to a dedicated Instagram page for her only daughter.

She said: ‘You were worth every push every contraction! Welcome to our world @caliclayshepard ❤ Love mommy and daddy @sterl_shep3’.

Almost immediately after Chanel posted a second picture which was taken from above and shows her daughter’s face and adorable full head of hair!

This picture confirmed that her daughter’s name is Cali Clay and they she was born on Friday 10 August.

Chanel has 1.6 million followers and she has been inundated with messages of congratulations.

One person wrote: ‘Congratulations to both of you!! 😍❤❤’.

Another said: ‘Congraaaaaaaatsss strong woman 🎉❤’.

A third added: ‘Beautiful family.. Well done mom! Congrats!! God Bless!! 🌸💕🍾’.

Little Cali may only be a few days old but her Instagram account already boasts over 5,000 followers and this number is likely to rocket.

Cali only follows three other accounts, her mum and dad and Naleya Rose Van Der Wiel, the daughter of fellow Victoria Secret’s model Rose Bertram.

Naleya Rose was born in February and back in March the account posted a picture of Chanel holding her.

The caption said: ‘Auntie ChaCha came to visit me today! 💓 @chaneliman’.

So perhaps we can expect a picture of Cali and Rose to appear on Cali’s Instagram page in the next few months…

Congratulations to Chanel and Sterling on the birth of your little girl!
