The pair are already the mother and father of three girls, twins Sawyer and Chandler, 3, and Hunter, 1.

They announced the pregnancy news less than a year after Kelly underwent brain surgery.

Kelly showed off her baby bump on Instagram with a family photo and the capiton, “Got to enjoy one of the most magical places with my husband and 3 of our kiddos. Not pictured: our middle baby girl, Huntie.”

Then came the announcement, “Baby Stafford #4 due this summer (no worries, well before training camp) 💖💙.”

The couple is keeping the gender a surprise! She wrote, “We won’t know whether the Stafford kids will continue as a girl squad or if a little brother will enter the craziness until baby is here. Excited and exhausted! #staffordpartyof6 #madeindetroit#nomoresedans #staffordstrong.”

Kelly later posted an Instagram Stories photo of herself in a form-fitting red dress and the message, “And yes. We are done after this. Stafford party of 6 will stay a party of 6.”

Last year, Kelly was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor on her cranial nerves. She had to undergo surgery in April.

A few weeks ago, she reflected on the journey. In an Instagram post, she wrote, “I will never forget feeling so alone in this diagnosis, walking out of the doctors office in shock, only to make it to the waiting area before I lost it on matthew’s shoulder, wondering what this meant for the future and how I was going to be a mother to my girls.. then looking around at everyone in that waiting room... some with staples in their heads, others awaiting their own diagnosis and realizing I was far from alone. People went through these kinds of things every day.”

This day I will never forget. I will never forget feeling so alone in this diagnosis, walking out of the doctors office in shock, only to make it to the waiting area before I lost it on matthew’s shoulder, wondering what this meant for the future and how I was going to be a mother to my girls.. then looking around at everyone in that waiting room... some with staples in their heads, others awaiting their own diagnosis and realizing I was far from alone. People went through these kinds of things every day. Then announcing it weeks later on Instagram and really realizing how many people were going through the same thing or something similar. It’s one of the positive things about social media.. it gives us the ability to connect to others that might be experiencing the same things or feelings as we are, making us feel like we are not alone. I knew the steps after this would not be easy, but I also knew I had a man at my side who would do anything and everything to make sure I was comfortable.. and that is what he did. So thanks to the support from Matthew, my family, my friends, and everyone who reached out.. it got me through the hardest time in my life! #ANwarrior #StaffordStrong #feb12

Sharing the news on social media helped. “It’s one of the positive things about social media,” she said. “It gives us the ability to connect to others that might be experiencing the same things or feelings as we are, making us feel like we are not alone.”

Kelly went on, “I knew the steps after this would not be easy, but I also knew I had a man at my side who would do anything and everything to make sure I was comfortable. and that is what he did.
