Ciara is expecting baby number 2!

Los Angeles - Ciara is pregnant.

The Love Sex Magic hitmaker and her husband Russell Wilson have announced they are expecting their first child together as they both took to Instagram on Tuesday - Ciara's 31st birthday - to share the news.

Alongside a picture of the couple cuddled up together, the Dance Like We're Making Love singer wrote: "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... (sic)"

The caption was finished with a series of emojis, including a baby and a bottle of milk.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old NFL star shared the same picture on his Instagram and wrote: "The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay (sic)"

Whilst the baby is Russell's first, Ciara is already mother to two-year-old Future Zahir, whom she co-parents with rapper Future.

Although Russell doesn't have any children of his own yet, he's had practice for the upcoming bundle of joy now that he's a stepfather to Future Zahir.

He said previously: "Ciara has a little man, he's awesome and cute as can be, he's a special kid. I'm a stepdad now. When I see this kid, he's 2-years-old, he's so sweet and loving, always has a smile on his face.

"Being a stepfather, it's about loving the child because the child can do something amazing in his life."
