Ciara announced her third pregnancy in January
The baby gender reveal by Ciara and Wilson comes after she took to Instagram in January to announce her pregnancy.
Ciara announced to her fans that she was expecting her third baby and second child with hubby Russell Wilson by showing off her baby bump in an Instagram photo captioned “Number 3.”
The photo showed her striking a pose in a bikini on a beach in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Wilson shared a different version of the photo that showed him in the foreground and Ciara in the background.
Ciara did not share her due date, but Monsters and Critics noted at the time that judging from the size of the bump, she was well along.

Future Zahir Wilburn, rapper Future’s fourth child, was born in May 2014.
Ciara and Future were previously engaged, but they split in 2014 after she reportedly caught Future cheating on her.
