US singer and actress Ciara and her husband Russel Wilson have confirmed speculations that they are expecting their first child.
The pop star took to Instagram on her birthday on Tuesday to confirm the good news in a very sweet post. The singer and the Seattle Seahawks quarterback who got married in July, used matching Instagram posts to tell fans that they are expanding their team.
Ciara, 31 posted a black-and-white photograph of herself with Russell holding her belly and captioned it;
“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…”
Similarly, the proud daddy-to-be Russell, 27 also took to Instagram to share the news. He captioned the same photograph;
“The greatest blessing of all. Forever grateful. Baby Wilson on the way,” he wrote.
Ciara who is already a mum to 2-year-old Future Zahir with her previous partner, rapper Future, got married in London just three months ago to Russel. They decided to tie the knot after a nearly four-month-long engagement.
Meanwhile, Wilson has been practising his parenting skills since his marriage to Ciara by playing the doting stepdad to little Zahir.
“When I see this kid, he’s only 2 years old … He’s so sweet and so loving, always has a smile on his face. Always joking around, always running around the house,” Russel said.
NFL star Wilson and songstress Ciara got engaged in March after dating for a year. Wilson popped the question with a huge rock in the Seychelles following Paris Fashion Week.
Four months later, the couple said their “I do”s at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
