Ciara has turned an ongoing rumor into a very exciting reality:
The singer is pregnant!
She just confirmed as much over Instagram!
About a week after the Internet first started wondering whether Ciara and Russell Wilson were expecting their first child together, the artist has put all questions to bed.
The answer is a very joyous yes, with Ciara shared the photo featured above on Instagram late Tuesday night and including the following caption along with 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..."
The picture features Wilson cradling his wife’s baby bump and also features a baby face and a baby bottle emoji, along with a heart.
And in case the message being sent was somehow still unclear, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback posted the same black and white portrait on his social media account, writing along with it:
“The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful.#BabyWilsonOnTheWay.”
This will be the first child for Wilson and second for Ciara, who has a two-year old son with rapper Future.
The Super Bowl champion and the lovely singer got engaged in March after a year of dating.
The famous couple then exchanged vows four months later at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
As previous reported, Ciara wore a custom Cavalli Couture gown - made up of white silk tulle, glass beading, Chantilly lace and a floral motif - for the occasion.
She looked amazing.
Wilson, meanwhile, went with a Giorgio Armani Made to Measure black six-button peak lapel set of evening tails.
And, naturally, little Future donned a custom Armani suit of his own to match.
Wilson gushed over his bride and their very special day in a chat with People Magazine soon after tying the knot.
"I’ll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle," Wilson said.
"I had so many [thoughts], but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train … and to realize I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills.
"Ever since the first day I met her, she’s always been, honestly, my best friend. We’ve been so close."
The stars also made news during their courtship for vowing NOT to have sex until they were husband and wife.
Wilson said in July of last year that God requested the pair remain celibate for awhile.
"[The Big Man] said, 'I need you to lead her.' I told her, ‘What would you do if we took all that "extra stuff" off the table, and just did it Jesus' way?'" Wilson told Pastor Miles McPherson of The Rock Church near San Diego.
We admire his dedication to not bang Ciara as soon as he could.
And we salute the couple for making the most of their opportunity to finally have an intercourse.
A baby! How exciting!
