It’s a “Win” for Ciara and Russell
Over the past few days, singer Ciara Wilson has been flooding Instagram with “retro” style pictures of her and her baby bump. The big question was “when is she going to have the baby?”. Due to COVID-19 and quarantine, we’ve all lost track of time and it seemed like Ciara was pregnant FOREVER!
Ciara revealed her pregnancy in January via Instagram with a bikini photo while on vacation in the Turks and Caicos Islands. This pregnancy has been unlike her others due to the strains COVID-19 has put on the “normalcy” of life. She shared with us videos on Instagram of doctor’s visits that she had to take without Russell. This is the couple’s second child together; however, Ciara has another son from a previous relationship with rapper Future.
Well, the wait is finally over! Ciara and Seattle Seahawk’s quarterback husband, Russel Wilson, took to Instagram and announced the birth of their second child, Win Harrison Wilson. Win was born on July 23 weighing 8lbs and 1oz. In the Instagram video, Ciara is seen singing Happy Birthday to the newborn. Russell expressed he was scared he wouldn’t be allowed in the hospital for the birth of his son due to COVID-19, but he was front and center with his phone filming the whole experience.
How it all began…
Ciara started dating rapper Future in 2013 and the pair were engaged shortly thereafter. In January 2014, Ciara confirmed she was pregnant with her first son, Future Zahir Wilburn. Rumors began circulating that Future was cheating on Ciara, and the engagement was called off in August 2014.
Ciara met Russell in 2015 when son Future Jr. was 10 months old. In an interview with Jada Pinkett-Smith on Red Table Talk, she said, “I had never had that feeling in my life. It was just, like, calm. We were connecting in every way. His conversation, it was just different. The way that he looked at life was different. Whenever he would think about me, he would think about my son. And to love me is to love my son.”.
The couple married in 2016 after Russell popped the question on a private beach in the Seychelles. They married in a gorgeous ceremony at the Peckforton Castle in Liverpool, England. On Ciara’s 31st birthday (October 2016), the couple announced they were expecting their first child together. Sienna Princess was born in April 2017. Ciara announced the birth of Sienna in the same fashion she announced the birth of Win, on Instagram. She posted, “Dear Sienna Princess Wilson, no matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We love you. Love, Mommy & Daddy.”.
Will there be more kids in the future?
Now that the Wilsons are a family of five, will they stop or will there be more kids in their future? In an interview with E! in July 2019, Russell said “three is my favorite number”, but he has since said differently. “If you ask [Russell], we’re talking eight babies,” Ciara said in an interview with Extra. “We’ll just go one day at a time, but I definitely do look forward to having more kids … We got time for that.”.
