The SI Swimsuit model is expecting her first baby with her husband, NFL star Eric Kendricks. She made the announcement to her 81,000 followers with an adorable Instagram reel on Jan. 26.

The video began with Courtnall breaking the news to the Vikings linebacker. He came home to a pregnancy test on the dining table and his face immediately filled with joy and emotion.

“We’ve been keeping a little secret🤭,” the couple, who got married last July, captioned their joint post. “Baby K coming 🔜.” The video was set to the sweet melody of Daniel Caesar’s “Best Part (feat. H.E.R.).”

The following clips featured close friends and family reacting to the news with excited screams and happy tears. A snippet halfway through the video showed Kendricks frozen with his mouth open still processing the news. “ERIC STILL SHOCKED,” the screen read with a laughing emoji.

A final shot in the video included an ultrasound accompanied by text that said, “BABY KENDRICKS COMING SOON …..🥰.”
