Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and her fiancé Jason Statham are expecting their first child - and we couldn’t be more excited for them!

The pair shared the wonderful news on Instagram after 29-year-old Rosie posted a picture of her sitting on a sandy beach, with her beautiful bump on show. 

She captioned the photo: “Very happy to share that Jason and I are expecting!! Lots of love Rosie x ❤ Photo by @jasonstatham.”

The Victoria's Secrets model and actress, who's starred in the likes of Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Mad Max: Fury Road, previously hinted that she had some exciting news to share with her legion of fans at the beginning of the year, when she shared a photo of herself with her horse on Instagram.

She said: “Here's to fresh starts and exciting prospects for the new year. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2017.”

But that’s not the first time the star has hinted about kids. Talking to The EDIT in 2015, Rosie said: “Having a family is something I think about for sure, and whether I'd live here in America or in England. But it's not always as simple as that.

“I have no idea what will happen, but it'll be interesting to find out, right? And nothing will be perfect, I'm sure.”

And three years before that, the blond beauty told Elle that there would come a time in her career when motherhood would take priority.

She said: “I always see myself working, but definitely being a mum will be a big part of me.

 

Forever proud of you my love.. �� #MechanicResurrection starring @jasonstatham and beauty @jessicaalba in cinemas August 26!

“I think there is naturally a point where you think, ‘I don’t care about myself as number one anymore.’ I want to care about other things.'”

The exciting news comes just a few days after Beyoncé told fans, in true celebrity style, that she and her rapper husband Jay Z are expecting twins.

Announcing the news on Instagram, as she posted in some pink and blue underwear, she said: “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over.

“We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well-wishes. -The Carters”.
