Chanel Iman has confirmed she's pregnant with her second child.

  It was reported last week that the model and her husband, National Football League (NFL) player Sterling Shepard, were expecting their second child, after the 28-year-old was photographed with a blossoming baby bump while carrying her 12-month-old Cali daughter in a parking lot. 

 The catwalk beauty finally confirmed the news on Instagram on Monday night by sharing a photo of her sat on a couch with Shepard, 26, and Cali, and wearing a crop top to show off her bump. She wrote in the caption, "Excited to announce we will be a family of four soon," with pregnant mother and baby emojis.  

 Her famous friends sent their congratulations in the comments, with fellow model Jourdan Dunn posting, "Congrats!!!" with love heart emojis, Lily Aldridge writing, "Best news congrats" with the clapping and heart emojis, and Olivia Culpo commenting, "Awwwwww yayyyyy!!!!"  

 Ashley Graham, who is currently pregnant with her first child, also wrote, "Awwww congratulations!!!!!!" 

 The pregnancy news comes just weeks after Iman and Shepard, who got married in March 2018, celebrated Cali's first birthday with a party. 

 Late last year, Iman made no secret of her desire to expand her family in a chat for People.com, but insisted she was in no hurry.  

 "Not soon, I need at least a year. Maybe (Shepard) wants it soon, but I can't. I have to wait at least a year," she stated when asked about the possibility of having more babies. "I want to enjoy Cali, give Cali her time."  

 The news also comes shortly after she returned to modelling by starring in a campaign for footwear brand Marc Fisher.
