·1-min read

Model Emily DiDonato is pregnant with her first child.

The fashion star, who has fronted campaigns for the likes of Ralph Lauren and Miu Miu, took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that she and her husband Kyle Peterson are expecting a baby girl in early December.

"Something special coming December 2021," she captioned a video montage of moments from her first trimester. "It was so hard to keep this a secret! So excited to share with all of you that I am pregnant with a baby girl! Can't wait to share this journey with all of you!"

Following Emily's announcement, a number of her celebrity friends were quick to send congratulatory messages.

"Yayyyy girls run the world! So happy for you guys," wrote Devon Windsor, while Shanina Shaik commented, "Omg congratulations!! So exciting."

Meanwhile, in a separate video uploaded to her YouTube page, Emily revealed that she has struggled with morning sickness.

"This first trimester is much harder (than I expected). I thought I was going to breeze through this. First three weeks, I had no symptoms, so I was like, 'This is fine!'" the 30-year-old shared. "About two weeks after we launched (skincare brand) Covey, I started feeling a little bit bloated.... The first trimester I felt really sick and nauseous and tired and I cried all the time. I'm still crying all the time! I don't think that's going to go away for this entire pregnancy. Now, I'm in my second trimester, I'm feeling a lot better."

Emily and Kyle wed in June 2018.
