Ciara captioned the picture with her son’s name, weight and date of birth. Future also tweeted the news but in a less direct manner, simply writing “Baby Future”.

Future Jr. was born at a healthy 9lbs 10oz on Monday. The baby was reportedly born in the early hours, as the NY Post reports, and was delivered at a hospital in Los Angeles. Future Jr. is Ciara’s first child and Future’s second as he already has a child from a previous relationship. The couple have been dating since early 2013 and became engaged in October of last year.

Rumours began circulating that Ciara was pregnant late last year and she confirmed the news by showing off her baby bump whilst making an appearance at The View. She also celebrated the news with a lavish baby shower in March of this year.

Most recently she has been spotted attending a Kids’ Safety Day in Los Angeles looking radiant and remarkably relaxed considering her large baby bump. She spoke to People magazine about dressing whilst pregnant, stating “I like to be free and comfortable and relaxed. I don’t want to feel stressed. It’s already so much with your belly being so big. When I have to get cute, I will get cute and put on some heels for an hour or two, and then throw those things off as soon as I get in the car!”
