It's official: Joe Flamm is having the best year ever.
The winner of Season 15 of Bravo's Top Chef announced that he and his wife, Hillary Delich, are expecting their first child together in a post on Instagram on June 15. The baby, or "Flammbino" as Joe has already dubbed his future child, is due to arrive in November.
Joe shared the happy news with a photo of the couple atop Aspen Mountain while in Colorado for the annual Food & Wine Classic last week. "The top of this mountain is where @padmalakshmi told me I was top chef so it seems appropriate for another huge announcement my best friend @hillarydelich are expecting!!!!!" Joe gushed on Instagram. "Flammbino coming this November!!"
Joe confirmed to PEOPLE that he and Hillary are expecting a baby boy. “We’re really excited about the baby," he said. "Overwhelmed and overjoyed for sure.”
The Top Chef Season 15 winner, who tied the knot with Hillary in May 2015, told The Daily Dish in March that he hoped to use his $125,000 grand prize to buy a house with his wife — in his hometown of Chicago, of course. "I'm hoping — I've been married for almost three years now — to be able to maybe buy a house, set down some roots a little bit," Joe, who is the executive chef at Michelin-starred Chicago restaurant Spiaggia, said.
Now it sounds like Joe and Hillary are going to need an extra room!
