Ciara has kept quiet for the most part about her growing baby bump, but it sure looks like she is not far from her due date. The 28-year-old singer showed off her large bump for the coming issue of W magazine.
Wearing form-fitting outfits, Ciara proudly shows off her pregnancy curves in a spread titled, “Simply Ciara,” which she calls her favorite shoot to date.
Inside, she addresses her celebrity status, saying, “I believe I wasn’t given this platform to perform in front of millions just for the sake of dancing and singing. There’s gotta be something more to it.”
In January, Ciara confirmed on "The View" that she's pregnant with her first child after months of sparking speculation with her fashion choices. The R&B singer shared many photos on her Instagram page, primarily showing herself in baggy clothes that hid her stomach, prompting fans to question whether she was hiding a baby bump.
Ciara held her baby bump on national television – and already appeared to be at least three or four months along. After "The View," Ciara stopped by Huffington Post Live and answered questions about her pregnancy, including the baby's gender. She hinted at expecting a boy. “I did have a preference before I found out what it was. I had a preference at first and it was different than what I thought, but my fiancé got what he wanted.”
In March, her soon-to-be husband, rapper Future, confirmed that speculation during a recent interview, referring to their baby as “him.” At her baby shower last month, the location was adorned with blue and white decorations. And it seems that Ciara and her 30-year-old fiancé have already picked a name for their baby -- her baby shower cake had icing that said “Baby Wilburn.”
