Break out the blue balloons: Katherine Webb is pregnant!

The former Miss Alabama is expecting her first child — a baby boy — with her husband, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron, she announced Tuesday on Instagram.

“AJ and I feel beyond blessed and grateful to FINALLY announce after 4 months we have been keeping a secret! We are having a BOY!” Webb, 25, wrote alongside a picture of the parents-to-be at an ultrasound.

“Thank you all so much for your prayers for us as it hasn’t been an easy journey. We thank God everyday for this wonderful blessing and can’t wait to share this journey with all of you!!”

In October, the brunette beauty shared a photo of her bare belly, hinting at a possible baby bump before placing the blame on a breakfast sandwich.

Webb and McCarron, 25, began dating in 2012 and announced their engagement in March 2014. Four months later, the couple tied the knot in Orange Beach, Alabama.

The mom-to-be garnered national attention after a sports announcer called her out for her stunning looks as she was cheering on her then boyfriend McCarron during a football game in 2013.
