Congrats are in order for one of our fave couples, Ciara and Future! Ciara gave birth to a baby boy in Los Angeles on May 19, Page Six reports. The songstress shared the first picture of her new bundle of joy on her Facebook page, with the update that his name is Future Zahir Wilburn.
Ciara and Future have been dating since early 2013. In October, Ciara announced her engagement to Future with a fifteen carat diamond ring, and revealed she was pregnant during an appearance on The View (January 14).
The singer initially want to keep the gender of her baby under wraps, telling reporters: “I want to keep that special,” but Future slipped in an interview and gave hints that he was expecting a mini-me by referring to the baby as “him.” And it looks like the little tot is already being trained up to follow his parent’s footsteps:
“The baby is already listening to music now,” Future previously said in a radio interview. “[Ciara] sent me a video while I was over here with the headphones on her stomach. She said ‘The baby just listened to Turn On The Lights, the version with me and you!’ I said ‘He gott- You gotta play that Anytime for him, the new one you did. Let him hear that. See how he kick’.
According to reports the baby is also set up to enjoy the finer things in life. Ciara reportedly racked up a $20,000 bill after deciding on a jungle theme for the baby’s room – spending $1,800 on an 8ft stuffed giraffe alone.’

Body Party: A Timeline Of Ciara's Baby Bump
1. Ciara's Baby Bump
Ciara confirmed her pregnancy and TMZ is reporting that the sassy singer is about 7 months along. We decided to do some digging and created a timeline of CiCi's growing baby bump.
2. June 30, 2013
Ciara is basically all abs over the summer last year. If she is indeed seven months pregnant now, this would be one month before her nine-month journey. This is the pre-baby body of all pre-baby bodies. Ciara makes our self-esteem drop in this Saint Laurent leather skirt with a leather bandeau.
3. July 9th, 2013
Ciara was only one month pregnant when she made an appearance at JC & R to promote her album. And while many women don't make the announcement until after the 3rd month, we can't help but notice her super baggy and absolutely hideous outfit. But with the release of her latest self-titled album, Ciara was caught up in a whirlwind of press.
4. August 22, 2013
If what we're speculating is right, then Ciara was eight weeks pregnant when she performed at the MTV/Covergirl event. Clearly, Ciara gave it all she's got and was still able to full-out perform in some of her tightest outfits. This white bustier doesn't really lend itself to baby bumps.
5. August 25, 2013
Ciara's amazing athletic figure was on display in this see through Givenchy number at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center. If she was indeed eight weeks into her pregnancy, we'd never be able to tell!
6. September 14, 2013
Ciara performed and partied it up at At The Bank Nightclub At The Bellagio in Las Vegas. While we're only speculating that she was three months pregnant in September, we know that her growing bump didn't keep CiCi out of the club! It's being reported that she's got a no smoking clause on Future's performance contracts. We wonder if clubbers were asked not to smoke with Ciara in the building?!
7. October 17, 2013
Ciara's style was becoming more and more tomboy and less form-fitting. Check out Ciara performing at the Annual Paper Nightlife Awards. If what we're saying is true about Ciara's pregnancy timeline, then she was a solid 16 weeks pregnant at this point. Layers on layers on layers seemed to be her strategy to mask her growing belly.
8. November 13, 2013
Ciara is certainly one of the most fit celebs to ever hit the red carpet and while many women start showing in their 5th month, Ciara still looks super fit. But there is that strategically placed rouching that slithers right above her exposed thigh. Rouching is a girl's best friend--it masks unflattering bulges. Could Ciara be hiding a 20 week baby bump in this Prabal Gurung dress?! We think so!
9. November 24, 2013
Ciara wore this a see-through illusion gown by J. Mendel and she looking amazingly fit! Great job J. Mendel, for creating such an amazing illusion by using geometrical lines and sheer panels. We're so busy studying the dress, we barely even notice that Ciara's normally flat tummy has a pouch. Something tells us her publicist was only allowing for straight-on shots. Can you see the 22-week bump?
10. December 22, 2013
It seems like almost overnight, Ciara's face was fuller and her clothes were ever baggier. The rumors about Ciara having a bun in the oven were more frequent the minute this photo hit the internet. Ciara and her fiance, Future were spotted at an Astronaut Kids Holiday Charity Event and Ciara may be wearing many layers, but we're not blind. We can see her growing bump. If our speculations are true, she was 26 weeks.
11. January 2, 2014
With just a peek of her upper belly showing, Ciara teased the world with this photo during her vacation in Bora, Bora. We're guessing that she's about 29 weeks here. Ciara's always been proud of her fit body and she's literally in paradise with overalls on. Hmmm...what's behind the overalls CiCi?! You can't fool us!
12. January 3, 2014
Ciara posted a plethora of vacation pics while in Bora Bora. And besides being jealous, we were completely clueless that she was serving mother realness! But she is wearing a flowy maxi dress, which is an easy breezy way to mask a bulging belly. Look closely!
13. January 14, 2014
This is the day of Ciara's pregnancy announcement. This is the most pronounced we've EVER seen her bump. If TMZ is fully accurate in their speculation of her pregnancy, we've only got two months left. Oh and about those heels...?
14. January 14, 2014
This is the same day Ciara announced that she is pregnant. She was attending The Fashion Fund On Ovation NY Event and opted to wear a loose-fitting LBD and chunky fur jacket. Even though we already know CiCi's expecting, she's choosing to mask her growing bump in loose-fitting clothes. We're watching you CiCi!
15. January 26, 2014
Ciara showed up at the Grammys, wearing this custom Pucci golden gown. Her baby bump was very pronounced and you could tell that the proud mommy-to-be couldn't help but rub her bump all over the red carpet. If our prediction is right, CiCi is 32 weeks pregnant.
