Congratulations to Anansa Sims and David Patterson!
The plus-size model, 33, and her husband are expecting baby No. 2, PEOPLE reports. We are “very, very excited,” she says.
The couple – who are already parents to 9-month-old daughter Ava – are “hoping for a boy” but would be “totally fine with [Ava] having a sister close in age.”
Someone else thrilled about the baby news is Sims’ own mother, former supermodel Beverly Johnson.
I was excited the first time, but I think I’m more excited this time because you see how much joy Ava brings and how much love you have,” the proud grandma, 59, says.
Sims and Patterson were wed nearly two years ago in Ohio. The family reality TV show, Beverly’s Full House, airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. on OWN.
