It’s only February, and it already seems as though this year will be the year of the celebrity baby boom! After Beyoncé’s subtle yet impactful twins announcement, and some rumors of a possible pair of Clooney babies, another celebrity couple has proudly let the world know that they’re successfully procreating!
Famous supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and her fiancé, action star Jason Statham, are expecting their first child together! The news came straight from Rosie herself, who posted a beautiful photo of her growing belly on Instagram.
The photo, which shows Rosie sitting on the beach in a bathing suit, was captioned with a simple yet efficient statement filled with love. “Very happy to share that Jason and I are expecting! Lots of love, Rosie,” the famous model wrote. The stunning photo of the mother-to-be was taken by the proud future father.
The 29-year-old former Victoria’s Secret model and the 49-year-old Spy actor have been together for five years. Statham proposed to Rosie back in January 2016, with a $350,000 five-carat engagement ring designed by Neil Lane. The model showed it off on the red carpet at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards, while she sported a stunning Atelier Versace gown.
The couple has always been extremely private, however, they did give several little glimpses into their relationship over the course of the last five years. Back in April 2015, Huntington-Whiteley said in an interview that marriage is not a priority to them. “For any couple that’s been together for a certain amount of time, there’s a massive amount of pressure to get married,” Rosie explained. “I totally believe in marriage, but being in a happy relationship is much more important to me.” Rosie also stated then that kids were something that’s “more realistic” in the near future.
It seems so, Rosie!
