Shanina Shaik is about to become a mom.

On Mother’s Day, the supermodel revealed she is expecting her first child with partner Matthew Adesuyan.

In a lengthy Instagram post, she shared how she’s thankful she was able to conceive and how ready she is to be a mother.

“To the new love of my life, Thank you for choosing me to be your Mum. I have always wanted you for as long as I can remember, and at times my patience was tested.The timing had to be right, and I can say with confidence that I am ready to be your guide, your protector and your best friend,” Shaik wrote.

She also shared that with each month of pregnancy, she learns something new about motherhood and what being a parent entails.

“I worry a lot, especially about your well being and development. It’s a feeling that I’ve never experienced before, not even about myself. I would do anything for you, be anything for you and sacrifice anything for you,” she wrote, addressing her baby. “And I don’t want to disappoint you,” she added.

In her post, the model included photos of herself smiling while cradling her growing baby bump in two white, sheer looks. In her caption, she also praised her own mother, saying that she has “set the bar high” for her.

She wrote that she wants to raise her child the way she was raised and encourage him or her to be the best version of themselves.

“I want to guide you to dream big and work hard, to live your life with passion and to reach your goals, no matter what they are,” she wrote. “I want you to know that no matter what life throws at you, you can count on me to be there for you. You will be supported and loved through every moment in your life, just as I have been. Sharing you with the world today is the most precious gift I could possibly receive on Mother’s Day.”

She added, “Mummy and Daddy cant wait to meet you !” and placed a tag for Adesuyan on her belly in the first photo of her bump.

Shaik’s pregnancy comes about two years into her relationship with Adesuyan—head of the L.A.-based record label Bad Habit. The two began dating following Shaik’s split from husband DJ Ruckus after 14 months of marriage.

On his Instagram, Adesuyan announced the baby news with a photo of himself with Shaik.

“Different kinda blessing, happy mothers day 👼🏽,” he wrote in the caption.
