Prior to giving birth, the model spoke about the anxiety that comes with impending motherhood.

Of her husband, she told Us Weekly in June,

I feel like he can be a doctor because he’s really good with being around any situation. I’m not as comfortable with the whole idea of labor. I’m a little nervous, but he seems to have a lot more confidence in me.

As we previously reported, Chanel took to Instagram on May 13, to announce that she and Sterling were expecting their first child, with sharing a photo of herself cradling her baby bump.
