First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes … the loose-fitting outfits and baby chatter. At least that's the way things seem to go for celebs like Ciara and her new husband, Russell Wilson.
The singer -- who wed her Seattle Seahawks star over the summer -- confirmed she's pregnant with her second child on Oct. 25, 2016.
"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... 👶🏽🍼💃🏽☺️❤️," she shared in a post on Instagram.
The news comes a week after pregnancy rumors began to swirl following the singer's appearance at New York's Refinery Hotel on Tuesday, Oct. 18, to promote Revlon as the company's new global brand ambassador.
Fans weren't the only ones who claim Ciara is expecting, either. E! News reports two sources have confirmed the singer is pregnant with her second child. (Her first son, Future Zahir Wilburn, is 2; his dad is the hip-hop artist, Future.)
"Ciara is pregnant and is so excited to be a mom," one of E!'s insiders said. "Russell would like to have two to three children. They both would like a big family."
That's certainly in line with what Ciara and Russell have said about expanding their family in the past.
Asked about his relationship with Ciara's son, Russell recently spoke to E! About the toddler's energy and intelligence, adding that he and Ciara hoped to bring some little ones of their own into the world as well.
"It's a blessing. He's such a special kid and he's so smart," Russell said. "He's active as can be. He loves sports — loves running around. I love kids. She does, too, and hopefully God willing..as long as they're
healthy, that's what we pray for whether it's a boy or girl — who knows — but we've got some time for that."
Ciara echoed that sentiment in an interview with Essence this spring, admitting she's always wanted more children.
"I remember telling my friend the kind of guy I wanted," she told the magazine, "a God-fearing man with a very fun spirit who loves kids and would really, truly care for me."
Clad in a Roberto Cavalli gown, Ciara tied the knot with Russell on July 6 at Peckforton Castle in England. She was previously engaged to her son's father, Future. Russell was previously married to his high school sweetheart; he has no children of his own … yet!
