Guess who is due soon…this GORGEOUS lady!!! Super excited for these 2 and this journey they are about to take into parenthood. Hoping for a easy breezy delivery, can’t wait to meet the soon-to-be newest member of the Smith household! Gotta say, I feel really bad for dad though, I can see the boys beating down the door already! Seriously!!! Both mom and dad are lookers so I’m sure their baby girl will be just fine either way on genes ;)  VIEW FULL GALLERY HERE
