The singer, who is extremely tight lipped about her private life, has been enduring pregnancy rumours for the past few months. She was rumoured to have been expecting when her fiancé rapper, Future – real name Nayvadius Cash, proposed in October 2013.
According to the Dailymail, Ciara first learned that she was expecting her first child shortly after the New Year.
The 28-year-old made the big announcement during Tuesday’s episode of The View, after Barbara Walters asked the star if she would like to confirm anything, with Ciara simply saying, ‘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.
'Congrats to my girl @ciara so happy for your bun in the oven,' she captioned the image.

Ciara opened up about the proposal and her future plans as the women checked out her impressive engagement ring, 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.'
Congrats to the happy couple!
Who do you think the baby will look like?
