In a series of photographs of herself cradling her growing baby bump, Shaik addressed the Instagram post to her unborn child, whom she called "the new love of my life."

"Thank you for choosing me to be your Mum. I have always wanted you for as long as I can remember, and at times my patience was tested," she wrote. "The timing had to be right, and I can say with confidence that I am ready to be your guide, your protector and your best friend."

"As each month goes by during this precious journey of pregnancy, I am learning what the role of being a mother entails," Shaik continued. "I worry a lot, especially about your well being and development. It's a feeling that I've never experienced before, not even about myself. I would do anything for you, be anything for you and sacrifice anything for you."

Noting that she "was raised by an amazing woman who taught me so much about motherhood," the model said of her own mom, "She has set the bar high and I don't want to disappoint you."
