She revealed on Instagram, “We are absolutely thrilled and elated to announce that after four years of marriage we are expanding our family and expecting our first child spring of 2015!”.
Coco released a short video of herself to reveal the news, which shows her in a nude ballerina dress as a music box type of song is played. The camera zooms in on her stomach area when the message appears “Baby Conran arriving Spring 2015”.

She said, “They have to call her by her first name. I think this is a new thing, women not wanting to be called grandma.”
Coco tied the knot when she was 22-years-old, stating she thinks it would be unfair to have a child when she was so busy with her modeling career.
Rocha stated, “Right now it would be unfair to have a kid in the mess of all my life. But when my work is done, I would love to have kids with James”.
In the interview with FASHION magazine, she also talked about her religious beliefs and regrets over certain modeling jobs.
She said, “At the beginning of my career there were photos and moments I wish I wasn’t a part of but I didn’t realize I could say ‘no’. Now I know that. I grew up – and still am – a practicing Jehovah’s Witness and believe in everything the Bible has to say. I’m a Christian first and a model second.”
