Niki Taylor Expecting Fourth Child

05/18/2011 at 07:30 PM ET

Niki Taylor‘s family continues to expand — baby no. 4 is on the way in mid-November!

The model, 36, made her big announcement Wednesday via Twitter, posting a message that read, “Guess what’s in this photo?” attached to a picture of Taylor holding an ultrasound image. She quickly followed that note with a second photo of herself kissing husband Burney Lamar as he holds their daughter Ciel, 2, writing, “YES!! We are expecting our fourth child! So happy and blessed!”

Taylor and race car driver Lamar, 30, wed in December 2006. The model is also mom to identical twin sons Hunter and Jake, 16, from her previous marriage.

Congrats to them! How exciting.

*Just a side note but that looks like such a simple, modest home in the background. Very lovely.

Corrie on

This makes me SO HAPPY. Especially since after that car accident a few years ago it didn’t even sound like she’d be able to get pregnant again – so this is a SECOND miracle for Niki!

Congratulations to Niki, Burney, Hunter, Jake & Ciel!!!

Jazzy on

Wow, that 2 year old is tall! Congratulations to them!

Crystal on

Awww! Congrats!! Maybe she’ll have twins again!!!!!!!!!!!! There could be another little one hididng behind baby #1!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

Krissa on

I wasn’t expecting this news as she doesn’t have the easiest pregnancies with the steel bar in her spine – but I am thrilled to hear it!

I love that she has found such happiness after the loss of her sister and then the horrible car accident.

Congrats to them!!

Rachael on

Wow, I didn’t realize their daughter was 2 already!! What great news, they seem like a very loving family!

Sam on

Congratulations! I don’t know them well, but remember when the boys were young, and when their little girl was born.

Notice how she said ‘we are expecting our 4th child’? Tori and Dean, et al, please take note!!!

Allison J on

Great news! Best of luck with her pregnancy!

Does anyone know how to pronounce Ciel’s name?

Jenny on


Brooke on

I believe her name is pronounced Cee-El. I think it is lovely. They seem like such a nice couple. And I love how Niki has older boys. Those two younger ones will have two big brothers to look up to.

Paige on

Aw. I squeeled when I read this news. So happy for them. Ciel has gotten so big and she’s extremely cute. Congrats! πŸ™‚

Marcella on

How weirdly low does her belly look?

Congrats!! πŸ™‚

2010-2011 is definately the year of the Girl for celebrities it seems! Anyone else picking up on this pattern? Mario Lopez, Zac Hanson, Joey McIntyre, Victoria Beckham, Ian Ziering, Mariah Carey and the list goes on……………….

Soco on

Why aren’t her sons in the announcement picture? Not important enough?

ELO on

Marcella- I thought the same thing. I was trying to picture that maybe she is leaning with her weight on one leg and her hip and pelvis shifted out.

ZaraB on

Lovely news for her, especially after all she’s been through. Very sweet photo too!

Liz on

That might be one of the cutest pictures I’ve ever seen! Ciel is a doll.

kristine on

Soco – perhaps they weren’t home, or 1 took the picture, or any other reason other than not being ‘important enough’…?

Julie on

I was so surprised by this happy news! Best of luck to them…her husband is a cutie and they seem like such a nice family!

Kristin on

@Soco – Her boys probably aren’t in the picture because they’re 16 year old teenagers who have better things to do, and probably don’t want their photo broadcast over the internet. I hardly doubt it has anything to do with being “not important enough”.

celeste on

Soco, her older sons are teenagers who don’t like to be in every single photo of their mom – and since this photo was supplied by Niki herself, it’s quite likely one of the boys was taking the picture. There are plenty of pictures of them on CBB with their baby sister when she was born. They are a very close-knit family.

Jenner on

Congrats, Nikki and family! She’s the best mom πŸ™‚

Meghan on

congrats! what wonderful news πŸ™‚

fuzibuni on

aw cute photo! I love how ciel is looking at the camera while her parents smooch.

also, identical twins aren’t genetic… meaning if someone in your family has a pair, or if you’ve already had identicals it doesn’t raise your chances of twins anymore than the next person:

Sarah S. on

Doesn’t Ciel mean “sky” in French? Lovely name. Congrats to the family!! πŸ™‚

Valerie on

Marcella- I thought that was her belly too- but I think that is her hip and she is standing somewhat side by side with her husband and then turned to kiss him.

Bree on

Congrats to the whole family!! My husband and I are due with our first and my step-sister is due with her second all around the same time that Niki is due, love those November babies πŸ™‚

B.J. on

Ciel (what a lovely name!) is a beautiful girl, Niki’s boys are handsome as well. This family is just so… pretty! πŸ™‚ Congrats to the family.

meghan on

Soco, what makes you think there is discord? They made a point of saying fourth child. Do you know what Burney said when he proposed to Niki? “I want to spend my life with you and the boys.” He included the twins from the start. They were the best men at the wedding. Don’t start conflict where there is none.

Jillian on

I have always liked her and been a fan of this family. After watching her on the Celebrity Apprentice, my like and respect for her grew even more. She is such an amazing person and women and is someone to admire. I am so happy for them to expand THEIR family to FOUR!!

Leigh on

They look so happy and like a “regular” couple who live in a “normal” neighborhood! So glad she has found joy in her life after several difficulties that were thrown her way.(Guess I will catch heck for the use of the words regular and normal???)LOL

jeepers on

FuziBuni, That is funny that put in a link for Ask a Geneticist from The Tech Museum. I used to write for that column!

laurelcanyonfashionista on

this makes me cry tears of happiness! wishing all the best to this beautiful family who has endured so much…


Shannon on

Congrats to them! Niki seems so sweet.

Stella Bella on

Congratulations to them! I couldn’t be happier for Niki. She has been through so much and seems to be in a good place now. Best wishes to her family!

Jan on

Leave it to someone to find something negative to say about something so wonderful….. Congrats and I wish you all the best.

Dannie Aarons on

I think that if they have another little girl, her middle name should be Kristen or Krissy after Niki’s sister that past away. that would be a great tribute to her. Just sayin’
