What a birthday! Ciara made a mega announcement on her 31st birthday on Tuesday, October 26, by revealing that she’s pregnant and expecting her first child with her husband, Russell Wilson.

The “Give Me Love” singer, who married the NFL quarterback this past summer, confirmed the joyous baby news with a beautiful, loved-up Instagram post featuring her husband. “On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family..” Ciara wrote late Tuesday. “And I’m excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give…”

In the adorable snapshot, Wilson affectionately cuddles up to his wife and cradles her burgeoning baby bump.

The Seattle Seahawks player echoed his wife’s sentiments early Wednesday, and shared the same exact photo with a sweet note of his own. “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful,” he wrote. “#BabyWilsonOnTheWay.” 

Wilson and Ciara memorably refrained from having sex until their wedding night, citing religious reasons. Following their nuptials, the couple both joked on social media about waiting until they were officially married.  

Along with the latest baby news, Ciara and Wilson celebrated her 31st on Tuesday night with a romantic dinner — sans wine. The birthday girl posted a photo of herself inside a restaurant with her husband, and wrote: “Entered My Birthday With A Tasty Dinner Overlooking The Falls With My Love..”

The Wilsons married in a destination wedding ceremony in a 19th century castle in England this past July. Since then, life has been ideal.

Ciara recently told Kelly Ripa that she was living out her dream every single day with Wilson. “After a special day like that, life is a honeymoon within itself,” the new wife noted. “It keeps going on and on.”

This is the first child for Wilson, and the second for Ciara, who shares a baby son with her ex Future.
