Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and fiancé Jason Statham are expecting their first child together, the British model revealed Thursday in a post on Instagram.

“Very happy to share that Jason and I are expecting!! Lots of love Rosie x,” she captioned the photo taken by “The Mechanic” actor. The 29-year-old model and 49-year-old Statham have been together for almost six years and announced their engagement last year in January.

Huntington-Whiteley is one of the highest paid models in the world and appeared alongside supermodel Gigi Hadid at the fifth spot on Forbes’ list in 2016, with estimated pretax earnings of $9 million. The British model surpassed the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne in the list.

She has appeared in the recent “Mad Max: Fury Road” and 2011’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” along with numerous campaigns for Burberry and Victoria’s Secret. Huntington-Whiteley also has her own series of lingerie, make-up and fragrances for department store Marks & Spencers, which Forbes says accounts for the majority of her earnings.

The Richest put the Plymouth, England-born model’s net worth at $5 million while her “Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels” actor fiancé was reported to have a net worth of $40 million.

The couple’s use of social media to reveal the news of the pregnancy comes soon after singer Beyoncé broke the record of the most liked picture on Instagram after she announced that she was expecting twins with husband Jay Z.

“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. - The Carters,” she wrote under the picture exposing her baby bump.
