June 25 (UPI) — Mom-to-be Chanel Iman is expecting a daughter with her husband, NFL player Sterling Shepard.

The 27-year-old model announced the news at her “beautiful” baby shower with family and friends Saturday.

Iman shared a photo on Instagram of herself and Shepard at the celebration. The picture shows the couple sitting on a pink couch with floral arrangements in the background.

“It’s a GIRL,” Iman wrote, adding pink emojis.

Shepard’s mom, Cheri Shepard, and sisters, Ashleigh Shepard and Shelby Shepard, hosted the shower in Oklahoma. Iman’s friend and fellow model Rose Bertram was among the other guests in attendance.

“So ready for this little girl,” Iman captioned another picture. “thank you @cherishep3 @shelby_shep_ @ashleigh_shep for a beautiful baby shower.”

The former Victoria’s Secret model married Shepard in March. She announced on Mother’s Day in May that she’s expecting her first child with the New York Giants wide receiver.

“Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you,” Iman wrote at the time. “As I approach motherhood I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and mommies to be.”
