Ciara and Russell Wilson expecting first child together
SEATTLE — Ciara and Russell Wilson wasted no time starting a family.
The singer and her Richmond-raised Seattle Seahawks quarterback husband married in July and announced Tuesday that they are expecting a baby.
Ciara used the occasion of her 31st birthday to post a photo of the couple on Instagram with the caption “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..” along with an emoticon of a baby.
Wilson shared the same image with the caption “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay”
It’s their first child together.
There had been speculation the “1, 2 Step” singer was with child after she started wearing outfits that hid her famously toned midriff.
She has a son from a previous relationship with rapper Future.
Before announcing her latest pregnancy, Ciara talked to CNN about being a mom.
Having Baby Future was “game changing for my life as a woman,” Ciara said.
“Now you’ve added another layer to your life which makes it even more,” she said of motherhood. “It makes the decisions you make in life even more crucial and you don’t have as many opportunities to make mistakes as you did before you were responsible for someone else’s life.”
