Congratulations to Chanel Iman and husband Sterling Shepard, as they have just welcomed their beautiful little girl into the world!

The 27-year-old model shared the couple’s happy news via social media…

“You were worth every push every contraction,” she wrote on her Instagram account, along with a photo of the new family from the delivery room.

“Welcome to our world @caliclayshepard. Love mommy and daddy @sterl_shep3.”

Proud father Sterling Shepard also gushed over his newborn by reposting another photo Chanel Iman uploaded, with the caption, “Everything I do is for you two. My world!”

Aww! We love how the model has been so open with her fans about her pregnancy journey – something many celebs choose to not do (ahem, Kylie Jenner) – and especially love how she made the pregnancy announcement on Mother’s Day of all days…

“Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you,” she captioned an image of her bump.

“As I approach motherhood I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and mommies to be.”

We hope that Chanel will continue to share her journey as a mother.

Congratulations again to the proud parents!
