The British model and her action-hero fiancé began dating more than five years ago and share a home in Los Angeles.
Despite saying just this year that she thought children rather than marriage were a realistic next step for the couple, Huntington-Whiteley and Statham looked very much in love on a recent holiday to Thailand just before the news was made public.
But my mum always says, 'Life doesn't give you an opportunity like this to turn down.'"Since they have been dating for five years, it's easy for the idea of the future and family to come up in conversations.
The 29-year-old model confirmed the news on Instagram on Thursday, sharing a pic of her growing baby bump in a bikini.
ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY is engaged to long-time boyfriend, actor Jason Statham.
The model's spokesperson confirmed the news after she was spotted wearing a large brilliant-cut solitaire ring at last night's Golden Globes.
The 29-year-old first sparked rumours she might be expecting last month after she posted a photo on social media that appeared to allude to a pregnancy.
In the photo, she is seen wearing uncharacteristically baggy clothing while petting a horse, and she added the cryptic message: “Here’s to fresh starts and exciting prospects for the new year. Many fans quizzed Rosie in the comments section of the image, asking if she was pregnant.
