Chanel Iman expecting second child - report

Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard

Chanel Iman is reportedly pregnant with her second child.

The model married National Football League (NFL) player Sterling Shepard in March 2018, with the couple welcoming a daughter named Cali Clay Shepard in August that year.

While neither Iman nor Shepard are yet to officially announce that they are expecting, sources have confirmed the exciting news to reporters at Us Weekly.

In addition, the 28-year-old was recently photographed with a blossoming baby bump while carrying little Cali in a parking lot.

Iman most recently posted a string of photos on Instagram showing the birthday celebrations for her daughter, who turned one on 10 August. The happy snaps focused on Cali dressing up in cute outfits and playing with balloons, while Shepard captioned one sweet family picture with the words, "Wow time flies! Happy first birthday to my lil mama."

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

"Not soon, I need at least a year. Maybe (Sterling) 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."

Yet, Sterling, 26, went on to explain that he is thoroughly enjoying fatherhood and admitted that it "wouldn't be a bad thing" if they had another tot.

Following her maternity leave, Iman returned to her fashion roots by starring in the fall 2019 campaign for footwear brand Marc Fisher.
