OH, BABY: The sexy couple share their stork news.
Beauty queen Yendi Phillipps is expecting her first child with recording artist boyfriend Daniel 'Chino' McGregor. The pair made the announcement Monday morning via Yendi's official Facebook fan page.
"17 weeks and counting," the duo revealed. "I wish we could have shared it earlier but you know they say it's bad luck to announce too soon. I'm so excited to finally tell you that we have a little 'McGregor' on the way! You know how much I value "you" as you've been such a support through my various ventures so I wanted you to know first-hand as this one is perhaps my most exciting to date! I feel truly blessed and am more amazed everyday to experience our creator in such a miraculous and organic way. Seasoned mommys, don't hold back on the advice. Love, blessings and life."
Chino, 29, and Yendi, 26, have been an item for more than a year now. While this marks the conception of Yendi's first child, Chino has a daughter from a previous relationship.
In the past, the lovebirds have been faithfully mum on their romance. But in March, Chino confessed to TALLAWAH that he and Yendi are "really close," adding that she's "pleasant and a really good friend."
Yendi is due to give birth in September.
