Chanel Iman and New York Giants wide receiver, Sterling Shepard, have announced their engagement. The loved-up couple became engaged just one day after the supermodel's 27th birthday. 

The adorable couple, who have been dating since January, both took to Instagram to gush over one another and announce their happy news.

Chanel and Sterling both posted the same picture, which shows the moment the football player got down on one knee asking for her hand in marriage.

The 27-year-old Victoria's Secret model captioned the photo, "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." She ended the post with a diamond ring emoji.

The 24-year-old athlete popped the question on Saturday, just one day after Chanel's 27th birthday. 


After the proposal, the couple celebrated the engagement with close friends and family at SPIN New  York. Some of Sterling's New York Giants teammates were on hand for the celebration, including Odell Beckham Jr., Tavarres King, Roger Lewis Jr., Travis Rudolph, Donte Deayon and Brad Wing.

The supermodel recalled of their first meeting, "When I first met him, he was in a suit and looked so sharp." Sterling added, "I walked up to her and bought her a drink and it was over after that."


The couple shared that their relationship isn't always so glamorous. "We live at the Cheesecake Factory, for real," Iman shared. "Salmon for him, spinach dip for me, and some type of pasta."

Chanel continued, "We always go in saying were only going to get one dessert but then we always get two because we have different tastes." Shepard adds, "Her eyes are bigger than her stomach."

Chanel is her man's biggest fan, sharing, "I say a prayer before his games. I know Sterling is very strong and I’m confident when he’s playing, but I’m a caring girlfriend, you know."
