Springtime will bring a whole new blossom into the home of supermodel Niki Taylor and her NASCAR husband Burney Lamar: They're expecting their first child together, Taylor's rep announced to PEOPLE Thursday.
"Burney and I are very excited with this stage of our lives," says Taylor, who is due in March. "We're thrilled."
Taylor, 33, met her husband while the duo was paired together to sign autographs at a charity event, and were married in December 2006. In lieu of wedding gifts, the couple asked that donations be sent to Victory Junction Gang Camp, a camp for chronically ill children where they continue to work raising money and awareness.
