Angelea Preston was disqualified from America's Next Top Model: All Stars, but things are looking up for the 25-year-old beauty. Preston's rep confirms to E! News that she's married and pregnant with a baby boy!
"I'm very excited about things that have been happening in my life recently, like with my marriage and my baby and my career," she tells Us Weekly. "I feel very blessed."
She explains that "around Christmastime," she discovered she was pregnant with boyfriend Eric Brown's baby. The parents-to-be said "I do" Feb. 24 in New York City. "I feel like Eric is more than just my partner—I feel like he's my best friend," she gushes.
This isn't the first pregnancy for Preston, who has signed with the Expecting Models Agency. In 2003, her daughter, Giavonna Anchell, was born three months premature and died 23 days later.
"I do tend to worry [about this pregnancy] just for the simple fact that my daughter was premature and she did pass away, so there's a lot of nervousness," she says.
But she's looking forward to being a mom again. "I feel that with this pregnancy, it's a second chance for me to be a mother, and it really puts things in perspective about what's really important in life," she says. "My son is going to look up to me and view me as a role model, so I just want to be the best person that I can be for him."
She's also confident her husband will be a great dad. Brown, who has children from a previous relationship, is "a great father to his kids," Preston says.
