‘We are both very excited about becoming parents, this is something we have wanted for quite a while now,’ Rachel said.
‘I can’t wait to watch Uzzy become a dad. He is very loving and caring and I know he will be an incredible dad.’
The pair – who recently showed off their stunning gender-neutral nursery – are waiting until the birth to find out their baby’s gender.

But Rachel, who is currently 39 week pregnant, said they already have some special names lined up.
‘We haven’t really landed on baby names yet, we have just narrowed it down to a few different boy and girl names and we will decide once baby has arrived,’ she explained.
‘We will definitely be picking Islamic names which has been a fun process for me, researching and learning the meaning of different names.’
Rachel is due this month and said she is feeling ‘really great’ despite being in the final stage of pregnancy.

The brunette beauty explained that she’s been keeping fit and active throughout her pregnancy and believes that it’s helped.
‘I honestly still feel like I’m in my 2nd trimester,’ she said.
‘I find towards the end of the day I might get a little uncomfortable but nothing too bad. I think the fact that I am still sleeping really well at night and staying active during the days is making all the difference.’
Rachel said she’s been doing Pilates five to six days a week and going on walks with Usman and their adorable pet dog, Lebron.

‘I have been so blessed during this pregnancy, I haven’t experienced too many of the bad pregnancy symptoms that some women have to go through,’ she said.
‘For me I think it’s a combination of my age and the fact that I have stayed active throughout this entire pregnancy.’
Rachel and Usman, 33, announced they were expecting back in February, when she shared a photo of her sonogram to Instagram.
‘Uzzy and I are so excited to share the news that we are inshallah [God willing] expecting baby Khawajy in July 2020,’ she told her followers at the time.
She added: ‘Feeling so very blessed at the moment and can’t wait for this next chapter in our lives.’
