Singer J Balvin and his girlfriend Valentina Ferrer are expecting their first child together.

The couple revealed their happy news in the latest issues of Vogue Mexico as they took part in a couple’s shoot which showcased the model’s growing bump.

Valentina proudly shared a picture from the shoot on Instagram as she wrote, ‘Se va agrandado la familia,’ which translates to ‘The family is expanding.’

Though the news has only just been confirmed by the pair, eagle-eyed fans had already began to speculate that Valentina had a bun in the oven earlier this year.

Indeed, fans believed Valentina’s baby bump had been visible when she was pictured out and about in Februay.

The Colombian hitmaker, known as the Prince of Reggaeton, first met the former Miss Argentina when she appeared in his 2017 music video for Sigo Extrañándote.

In the video, she played the Mi Gente singer’s wife and the mother of his child!

The couple made their red carpert debut at New York Fashion Week in 2018 and made no secret that they hoped to start a family together.

Valentina told the New York Post: ‘I want to have a big family—three or four kids. I’m a simple girl.’

There had been reports that the pair split in 2019 before reuniting in 2020, but it’s safe to say the relationship is stronger than ever now as they begin a new chapter as parents.
