Singer Ciara has revealed she’s pregnant with her first child.
The Speechless songstress, who is notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to her personal life, was left just that after learning that she was expecting her first child shortly before the New Year.
The 28-year-old made the big announcement during Tuesday’s episode of The View, quite simply letting her blossoming baby bump do the talking.

When Barbara Walters tentatively broached the question of pregnancy, amid months of speculation, asking the star if she would like to confirm anything, the 1, 2 Step hitmaker simply replied: ‘Of course I would love to’, before standing up and opening her waistcoat to reveal her round tummy.
Co-host Jenny McCarthy was quick to share her congratulations, posting a photo of the pair to her Twitter page shortly after the show wrapped.
It’s been an exciting few months for the singer, who got engaged to rapper Future – real name Nayvadius Cash – on October 28.
Ciara opened up about the proposal and her future plans as the women checked out her impressive bauble, saying she was happier than ever to be marrying her ‘best friend’ and confirming that the wedding will take place this year.
‘I’m so excited, honestly,’ she gushed. ‘Last year was like the best year of my life, for so many reasons. Being able to get a fresh start with my label, then of course the engagement.’
The 30-year-old surprised his girlfriend with a stunning 15-carat sparkler following a whirlwind romance that was first reported at the beginning of the year.
It will be the first child for Ciara, while her soon-to-be husband is already dad to three children by three different women – he has an 11-year-old son, four-year-old daughter India Jai and one-year-old son Prince.
