Another model is heading into motherhood: Lily Aldridge is pregnant.

“We are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child together,” the Victoria’s Secret Angel, 26, and her husband, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, confirm to PEOPLE through the band’s rep.

“We can’t wait to meet the new addition to our family.”

The news is no surprise as Followill, 29, alluded to having a child after the two tied the knot in Santa Barbara last May.

“I can’t wait to raise a family with her because she’s a great woman,” the singer told PEOPLE in August.

Friends of the couple have been buzzing about the baby news in Nashville, saying, “They both look great, she is glowing. They are very happy.”

Last April, Followill’s cousin Matthew Followill welcomed son Knox and revealed that the new addition was spreading baby fever among the band.

“Other people in the band are getting kind of excited [to start families] now that we have a baby,” he told PEOPLE.

The confirmation comes a month after Aldridge joined her fellow Angels — including mom-to-be Alessandra Ambrósio — for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
