Congratulations, Kim Riekenberg! The 28-year-old German model is currently expecting, and she shared the sweetest maternity photo Tuesday on Instagram.

Riekenberg donned a white bodysuit and an oversized black blazer that casually hung off one shoulder for the IG post she shared with her 76,900 followers. The model cradled her growing belly with both hands as she smiled softly and gazed downward. She tagged photographer Jenn Werner and hairstylist Jasmin Zelenko in the heartwarming image.

“Already my most favorite chapter 🤎🧸,” Riekenberg sweetly wrote in her caption.

Riekenberg originally announced the news of her pregnancy on the platform on April 9 with a series of black-and-white images. “Silhouette of three, mom and dad to be! 🤍,” she captioned a photo of herself and partner Alessandro Hasni while debuting her baby bump. In another set of snaps, also captured by Werner, the parents-to-be embraced.

“Congrats❤️,” Robin Holzken commented of the couple’s exciting news.

“Congratulations beautyy 😍👏🏽,” concurred Sofia Resing.

“Omg congrats baby😍,” Manuela Tatjana Frey added.

Riekenberg was featured in the 2020 SI Swimsuit Issue after posing for photographer Ruven Afanador in Wyoming. She’s also been featured on the cover of Elle Germany and has worked with Polo Ralph Lauren, H&M and other notable brands.
