Ciara shares baby bump picture
Ciara has shared a picture of her growing baby bump.
The 31-year-old singer is expecting her first child with American football star Russell Wilson, and has taken to Instagram to share a photo of herself featuring her growing belly.
The selfie – taken as the star watched her husband, who is a quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, play in a football match – was captioned: "1st Selfie Of The #NewYear #GoHawks (sic)"
The news comes after the ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’ hitmaker – who already has son Future, two, with ex-fiance Future – revealed she knows whether she’s expecting a boy or a girl, but she doesn’t want to tell anyone.
She said: "I do know [if it’s a boy or a girl]. I’m not telling, not yet, but I’m very excited."
Asked if they’ve chosen a name, she added: "We’ve already done that actually."
And the ‘Goodies’ singer and Russell, 27, aren’t the only ones excited about the new addition to their family as little Future "can’t wait" to be a big brother.
She said: "He rubs my belly and he says, ‘Hi baby. I love you, baby,’ … and then he puts my shirt down and says, ‘Bye, bye baby.’ So, that’s his own thing.
"He sees a baby walking, smaller than him and walking — it doesn’t matter, it’s a baby. So, he goes, ‘baby’ and he looks at me and he goes, ‘Mama, baby’ – and he tries to pull my sweatshirt up."
And Ciara – who suffered with nausea in the early stages of her pregnancy – is thankful to be feeling "really good" now.
She said previously: "I’m feeling really good, the first few months were a bit tough for me.
"Well, not tough, but a bit more like, I didn’t throw up last time and this time I haven’t thrown up but I’ve had that in between feeling where I don’t wanna throw up, I can’t throw up but I’m not normal and that’s even more torture.
"I’m like can we find the rhythm here? What do I eat, what do I drink?
"I’m now in that place where I’m not feeling that feeling and I’m not that tired so it’s good."
