27 year-old supermodel Chanel Iman and NFL player Sterling Shepard are engaged
The couple, who have been dating since January, announced their engagement on Saturday.
They both took to Instagram and posted a copy of the same photo, which shows Sterling Shepard down on one knee asking Chanel Iman to marry him.
Chanel, 27, stands before Sterling, 24 years old, in a white feathery coat and dark skinny trousers, apparently covering her mouth with surprise. Romantic candles are laid out all around the couple.
In her Instagram post, Victoria’s Secret darling Chanel couldn’t help but gush about her husband to be. She wrote:
‘A night full of tears of happiness. I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you @sterl_shep3 you are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything! Can’t wait to be your Mrs..’
Sterling’s own post was shorter. While expressing his love, he included a clever pun:
‘the catch of my dreams…can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!’
Sterling Shepard certainly chose a memorable day to pop the question, as Chanel celebrated her 27th birthday only one day before, on Friday.
