Here's one secret the Victoria's camp couldn't keep under wraps: Heidi Klum is preggers.

Nearly a week after Star magazine broke the story that the German-born babe had a bun in the oven, Klum made the news official, announcing on her Website that she and new fiancé Seal are expecting their first child together.

Klum, 31, also has a 10-month-old daughter, Leni, with Italian race-car tycoon Flavio Briatore. Klum and Briatore had broken up by the time Leni was born last May, and the supermodel had already hooked up with the singularly named Seal. The British-born singer popped the question in December.

"Heidi, Seal and especially Leni, are proud to tell you that we recently found out that we are expecting our second child," read a message on "There is nothing that gives us greater happiness than the realization of our dream."

No official word when the tyke is due, but Star pegged the delivery date in September. There's also no announced timetable for the Klum-Seal nuptials.

In any case, it will be the first kid--and marriage--for Seal, the 42-year-old popster best known for such silky smooth hits as "Walk on By," "Crazy" and "Kiss from a Rose," for which he won a Grammy in 1995.

Klum, best known for strutting the catwalk for Victoria's Secret, is fresh off a stint hosting Bravo's popular Project Runway fashion design contest, which is being prepped for a second season. She recently tried her hand at acting, portraying Ursula Andress in the HBO telefilm The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.

Her first marriage, to hair stylist Ric Pipino, ended in divorce in 2002 after five years.
