Karen Gallman is pregnant with her first child with her husband Ian Garton, the beauty queen-model announced on Wednesday, August 26.
On Instagram, the Miss Intercontinental 2018 posted a clip showing her growing baby bump. In the caption, Karen revealed that she is already 20 weeks pregnant.
"BABY GARTON ARRIVING JANUARY 2021," she wrote. "We are SO excited to be welcoming our little one into the world!"
The news was met with congratulatory messages from her fellow beauty queens Megan Young, Vickie Rushton, Michelle Gumabao, Laura Lehmann, Rachel Peters, MJ Lastimosa, Cynthia "Thia" Thomalla, Eva Patalinjug, Valerie Weigmann, Jehza Huelar, Aya Abesamis, Karen Ibasco, and Sandra Lemonon.
In a separate post, Karen expressed her gratitude to their well-wishers.
"Thank you all for your beautiful messages and well wishes! Ian and I are over the moon with happiness," she said.
Karen, the first Filipina to be crowned Miss Intercontinental in the pageant’s 47-year history and known look-alike of American model Kendall Jenner, tied the knot with Ian in March at Stoneridge Estate in Queenstown, New Zealand.
