Coco Rocha Pregnant Expecting First Child

She’s about to release her first book, Study of Pose, but Coco Rocha has another debut on the way.

The model and her husband, artist James Conran, are expecting a baby, she announced Monday on social media.

“We are absolutely thrilled and elated to announce that after four years of marriage we are expanding our family and expecting our first child spring of 2015!” she captioned a video posted to Instagram.

There’s no hint yet on whether it will be a boy or girl, but we do know what Rocha’s mom Rocky wants her future grandchild to call her — and it’s not Grandma.

“They have to call her by her first name,” Rocha, 26, told PEOPLE this past summer. “I think this is a new thing, women not wanting to be called grandma.”

Added Rocky, “I’m old in skin, but not in my thinking.”

Rocha and Conran wed in 2010.

Congrats to Coco. I love her! She has taken a stand on representing all types of women on the catwalk and fashion industry. I love seeing strong women starting families.

I have never, ever, ever defauled myself enough to comment on another womans looks or shape. Be it small, large, tall or short i know we are all different and welcome them openly.

Id usually think that those who blame magazines for photo dont like what they are, so they project it onto everyone and everything else.

Some women are naturally thin and id say if they arent hurting themselves, how can their looks hurt YOU?!

But this lady? Id gawk at her and wonder if she really thought her waif like gait was decent. She was spooky skin and bones. Totally not naturally thin as ive seen on many women.

I hope she has a healthy pregnancy and doesnt think to attempt to remain the same and follow some wacky diet and eat freely for her baby and herself.

Congrats! Babies are a huge blessing.

I didn’t realize she is so young! I watched her on some reality/competition show and she seemed so mature and well spoken.
Congrats to Coco and her hubby! That will be one lovely baby for sure!

Look to second photo, she is too thin, needs to add some pounds.

More anorexic women are seeking fertility treatment than treatment for their eating disorder. Cases in point: Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie. Models getting pregnant. Wonder if now that she can’t smoke like a chimney, she’ll return to a normal physique?

Yes, some people are naturally thin. But if you look at photos of models and female celebrities before they were famous, they are, to a person, more normal. The majority of them becomes scary-skinny either in order to be famous, or not long after becoming famous. Even Jennifer Hudson, although she is not scary-skinny, dropped a boatload of weight. And Heidi Klum was quoted not long ago as not being considered by designers anymore as she’s “too big”.

20/21 when married? 😳
She’s a Jehovah’s witness so do they celebrate births? I know they don’t celebrate birthdays in general.

I agree she needs to gain wait tout suite

I saw her in an interview once, and she was BEYOND obnoxious. So many models are.

How can someone so skinny have a baby in the first place? I wonder if one or the other will probably die because she is so thin.

@Alex yup, JW’s celebrate baby showers….and that’s it. Personally I don’t like her…she’s parading around about being a jw doing things they aren’t supposed to do…like be famous. But whatever….
