Ciara and NFL star Russell Wilson have welcomed their first child together.
The 31-year-old singer and 28-year-old Seattle Seahawks quarterback announced via Instagram that they had welcomed a bouncing baby girl on Friday night.
Along with a photo of a pregnant Ciara by the beach, the couple even revealed the name of the child: Sienna Princess Wilson.
The proud mother-of-two wrote: ‘Dear Sienna Princess Wilson, No matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We Love You.
Ciara married the Seattle Seahawks quarterback last year, and while it is his first child, it is her second.
She also has a two-year-old son named Future Wilburn with her ex, rapper Future, 33.
The Goodies hitmaker – whose full name is Ciara Princess Wilson is clearly a big fan of motherhood, as she explained to E! Online last year even before becoming pregnant a second time.
‘There’s something about having a child and knowing that you’re responsible for someone else that gives you an extra pep in your step and also defines the reason of why you do what you do,’ she said.
‘My son is my world, he means everything to me. He’s come in my life and brought me something that I’ve never felt before, he brought me a love I could never imagine and I just feel responsible for that.’
Since they started dating in 2015, Russell has grown closer and closer to Ciara and Future’s son – which hasn’t always sat easily with the rapper.
In July of 2015, Future lashed out at his ex after photos emerged of Wilson pushing Future Jr in a stroller.
‘If I was a kid, and my mom had a dude pushing me, I would’ve jumped out the stroller and slapped the sh*t out of him,’ he declared at the time.
‘You never do that in our community. You don’t even bring a man around your son,’ he added. ‘You only know this dude for a few months and you’re bringing him around your kid? Who does that? Nobody does that.’
Ciara pointed out afterward that while they were dating, she had at different times taken care of the three other children he had fathered with three other women.
Then came the lawsuits, as they battled for custody of their son: In February 2016, Ciara filed a $15 million dollar defamation suit against Future for comments he made in multiple interviews and tweets.
Things continued to get ugly between the exes when Future counter-sued Ciara, claiming he couldn’t defame her because her career was a ‘flop.’
Ciara did not let the mudslinging affect her new love and married Wilson on July 6, 2016, in Liverpool.
In January of 2017, Future and Ciara settled their custody battle over Future Jr; Ciara dropped her $15 million dollar lawsuit against his father the following month.
