Her bump was almost immediately noticeable and when she was asked by show regular Barbra Walters whether she was expecting, Ciara stood up to present her blossoming baby belly. Admitting, "I'm so excited for this year," the singer looked overwhelmed with joy as she rubbed on her stomach, grinning from ear to ear. With the singer and her beau getting engaged in autumn last year, this is their first child together.

Ciara and Future got engaged in October last year, with the 'Turn On The Lights' rapper getting down on one knee and proposing with a custom-made 15-carat ring on the singer's 28th birthday. The pair plan on getting married later this year, with no date yet revealed to the public, and will be the first time either have gotten married.

"I think I'll be part bridezilla, I'm not going to lie. But I want to be a happy one," Ciara added in her The View talk. "I still want it to be a fun process, but I want the dress to be perfect, I want the cake to be perfect, I want the food to be perfect. We're both looking forward to it."

Although this is the pair's first marriage, and this is Ciara's first pregnancy, this is not the first child for Future. According to People, the rapper and producer, real name Nayvadius Cash, has three children from previous relationships; an 11-year-old son, a 4-year-old daughter and a second son, aged 13 months.
