Ciara is officially a mom!
According to Page Six, the singer and fiancé Future welcomed a baby boy in the early hours of Monday (May 19) in Los Angeles, and named the little guy after his father!
“FUTURE ZAHIR WILBURN 9lbs 10oz May 19 2014,” Ciara wrote in the caption of an Instagram post that also shows only the baby’s arm.
Back in April, the 28-year-old star discussed her pregnancy with US Weekly, which was thankfully a pretty smooth process.
“I feel great,” Ciara told US Weekly at the time. “I didn’t even know what to expect, but it’s been a very easy process — and it’s been so much fun. Honestly, it’s been the coolest experience in my life!”
Regarding choosing a name, Ciara said, “It was kind of easy. But the middle name was a little hard for me…I went with what felt right in my soul and my gut. I didn’t second guess it.”
The baby is the first for the musical couple, though the rapper has three other children from previous relationships.
Ciara and Future announced they were dating in early 2013, and became engaged that October. Three months later, the “Get Up” singer the revealed her pregnancy when she appeared on The View with a sizable baby bump.
According to Page Six, Ciara and Future are set to wed this fall, so it looks like they won’t have trouble finding a ring bearer!
Congrats to the happy couple and their growing family!
