Singer Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson are expecting their first child together.
The Christian couple announced the news over Instagram. "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," posted Ciara, along with a black and white photo of Wilson with his arms around her.
Wilson shared the same photo and captioned it, “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay."
Ciara and Russell got engaged in March after dating for a year. They got married four months later at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. They made news for their commitment to save sex until marriage.
"I'll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle. I had so many [thoughts], but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train... and to realise I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills," Wilson earlier told PEOPLE of their wedding. "Ever since the first day I met her, she's always been, honestly, my best friend. We've been so close."
The couple also broke the news of Ciara’s pregnancy to her two-year-old son, Future Zahir. Zahir is Ciara’s child with her ex-fiancé rapper Future.
