Ciara has named her son Future Zahir Wilburn.
The 'Goodies' singer gave birth to her first child with partner, Future Sr., this morning (20.05.14) and they have decided to name the tot after him.
Alongside a picture of the newborn's arm, she posted on Twitter: ''FUTURE ZAHIR WILBURN 9lbs 10oz May 19 2014.''
Producer and rapper Future Sr. - who was born Nayvadius D. Wilburn - added on his own Twitter page: ''Baby FUTURE''
Future Sr. got his name when he was growing up in Atlanta and members of the musical collective The Dungeon Family started to call him The Future.
Ciara, 28, recently said they had already selected a moniker for their son, explaining: ''I went with what felt right in my soul and my gut. I didn't second guess it.''
The 'Body Party' star also told how her first pregnancy had been very smooth.
She said: ''I didn't even know what to expect [with the pregnancy], but it's been a very easy process. And it's been so much fun. Honestly, it's been the coolest experience in my life.
''Being able to know that I can do that is such a blessing. I'm literally obsessed with kids, so I'm excited about being able to have my own to obsess over.''
The baby is Ciara's first child, and Future's fourth.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
