Ciara and Russell Wilson expecting a baby

Newlyweds Russell Wilson and Ciara are going to be parents, the couple announced late Tuesday -- which also happened to be the mom-to-be’s birthday. 

Wilson and Ciara took to their respective Instagram accounts to let the world know that they are expecting their first child together.

Russell shared an intimate black and white photo of himself and his R&B singer wife snuggling up, his hands resting on her stomach.

“The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay,” he wrote.

Ciara shared the same photo on her account, writing, “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.”

The NFL star and singer started dating in 2015 and tied the knot in March 2016. This will be Wilson’s first child, though Ciara has a 2-year-old son with rapper Future.
