Ciara is Pregnant! Singer Expecting First Child With Russell Wilson
Ciaraand Russell Wilson‘s family is about to grow!
The R&B songstress and NFL star are expecting their first child together, Ciara confirmed on her birthday via Instagram. The pregnant star wrote, “On this special birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family…and I’m excited to finally share one of the greatest gifts of all that god could give.”
Wilson posted a sweet image on his own Instagram and wrote, “The greatest blessing of all. Forever grateful.”
Ciara and Russell’s forthcoming bundle of joy will be their second and first, respectively. The 30-year-old co-parents 2-year-old Future Zahir with ex, rapper Future.
The singer, who was recently named Revlon’s Global Brand Ambassador, stepped out to perform at a private event for the cosmetic organization in New York City on Tuesday evening. Ciara concealed her growing baby bump with an all-white, loose-fitting blazer and matching pants.
Back in July, E! News exclusively reported the lovebirds were surrounded by their closest family and friends as they tied the knot during a lavish wedding ceremony at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. Since then, all eyes have been on the pair’s aspirations to start their very own family.
Last year, E! News caught up with the “I Bet” performer where she gushed about having baby on the brain. “I definitely do, yes,” Ciara responded when asked if she wants any more kids. And as for talking about that baby plan with her beau, she told us, “We discuss a lot of things [laughs]. A lot of good things!”
An insider also reveals to us the Seattle Seahawks athlete would like “two to three children,” adding, “They both would like a big family.”
The proud father-to-be already has plenty of practice in the kids department, recently telling Maria Shriver during her “Architects for Change” series what it’s like to be a stepdad.
“She has a little man, he’s awesome and cute as can be, he’s a special kid. I’m a stepdad now. When I see this kid, he’s 2-years-old, he’s so sweet and loving, always has a smile on his face. Being a stepfather, it’s about loving the child because the child can do something amazing in his life,” the 27-year-old explained. Aww!
In late August, Ciara couldn’t help but echo her man’s sentiments while talking to E! News‘ Sibley Scoles about her newlywed status.
“Married life is the best life,” she said. “it’s definitely life-changing, and you do feel a difference between the stages of being boyfriend and girlfriend to being engaged to actually being married. You feel the definition of what ‘being one’ is, and it’s really cool. Nothing compares to what this feels like.”
We’re betting nothing compares to this wonderful news! Congratulations, you two.
