Emily Ratajkowski Is Pregnant With Her First Child: "Grateful & Growing"
Emily Ratajkowski is going to be a mom! In her Vogue cover story released on Oct. 26, the 29-year-old model revealed she is expecting her first child with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard. "Grateful & growing," she captioned a clip of her rubbing her growing belly in the digital cover. Vogue also shared a video documenting her pregnancy on YouTube.
Emily added that the couple is choosing not to reveal the gender of their baby. "When my husband and I tell friends that I'm pregnant, their first question after 'Congratulations' is almost always 'Do you know what you want?' We like to respond that we won't know the gender until our child is 18 and that they'll let us know then," she said. "Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who — rather than what — is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to? How will they change our lives and who we are? This is a wondrous and terrifying concept, one that renders us both helpless and humbled."
Emily and Sebastian surprised everyone when they tied the knot at City Hall in NYC in February 2018 after a few weeks of dating, but the pair had reportedly been friends for years. Congrats to the couple on their growing family!
