Desi Perkins is going to be a mom!

The YouTube star shared she's expecting her first child with her husband, Steven Perkins, on Instagram over the weekend.

In a sweet video, Steven calls out to her while she's in the garden. She turns around, smiling, to reveal her baby bump. "PERKINS PRODUCE! Our best harvest yet. Coming October 2020," she captioned the clip.


Steven shared a photo of the two, I mean, three, on his Instagram as well. "As I type this I am bursting with happiness?. We are happy to announce a little Perkins will be joining the family. Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful wife," he wrote on Sunday.


Fans of the beauty mogul were thrilled to hear the news, especially after following Desi's long and trying journey to get pregnant. The happy announcement came just hours after the 33-year-old shared a video in which she said things have been "beyond difficult" for the couple, reports Entertainment Tonight.

"Our journey has been beyond difficult, but it's also been a blessing," she said in the caption for the video. "A blessing because we knew that sharing our journey could give anyone here that's struggling with infertility a moment to feel that they're not alone in this. We wanted to provide support and knowledge to whoever needed it. Reading your words through this process has been very endearing, supportive and kind. We could not have asked for better friends."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
