Ciara and Russell Wilson Are Expecting Their First Child Together
Ciara and Russell Wilson are expecting their first child together, just three months after tying the knot at their July wedding.
Ciara was the first to confirm the news on Instagram late last night (October 27), posting a black-and-white photo of her and Wilson along with the caption, “On this special birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family…and I’m excited to finally she one of the greatest gifts of all that god could give.”
Wilson then corroborated the announcement on his own Instagram, writing, “The greatest blessing of all. Forever grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay.”
While the couple’s child will mark their first together, he or she will join Future Zahir -- Ciara’s two-year-old son with ex-fiance Future -- who Wilson has gushed about at length in the past.
"[Ciara] has a little man, he's awesome and cute as can be, he's a special kid," the NFL player told Maria Shriver on her Architects of Change web series. "I'm a stepdad now...When I see this kid, he's only 2-years-old, the most special kid, he's so sweet, so loving, he always has a smile on his face. Being a stepfather, ultimately it's about loving the child because the child can do something amazing in his life."
Ciara and Wilson wed at a medieval castle in Cheshire, England, earlier this summer, three months after announcing their engagement.
