Webb posted to Instagram Tuesday to reveal that she is pregnant with a a baby boy, sharing a snap of herself getting an ultrasound with McCarron at her side.

“AJ and I feel beyond blessed and grateful to FINALLY announce after 4 months we have been keeping a secret! We are having a BOY!” Webb wrote. “Thank you all so much for your prayers for us as it hasn’t been an easy journey. We thank God everyday for this wonderful blessing and can’t wait to share this journey with all of you!”

Webb had revealed a few months ago that she and McCarron, who plays football for the Cincinnati Bengals, had been struggling to conceive a child. “We have been trying for the last year to get pregnant with our first,” Webb captioned a picture with their dog. “But this little nugget has been my kid either way, and always gives me kisses when I’m down about it.”

Webb and McCarron were wed July 12, 2012 after becoming engaged in March of that year. The two met while attending the University of Alabama. During those years, McCarron became one of the most highly touted quarterbacks in college football and Webb was crowed Miss Alabama. Webb’s celebrity status grew during McCarron’s second BCS National Championship win in 2013, when ESPN analyst Brett Mussberger zeroed in on her appearance.
