Newlyweds Ciara and Russell Wilson have announced that they’re expecting their first baby together, with the singer and NFL star sharing their news with their fans on Instagram.

Ciara posted a loved-up picture of herself with her husband on Tuesday (October 25th), which also happened to be her 31st birthday. She captioned her pic: “On this special birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family… and I'm excited to finally share one of the greatest gifts of all that god could give.”

Wilson, a quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, wrote: “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay”.

The couple, who began dating in early 2015, got engaged in March and then tied the knot in an ostentatious ceremony at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire in July this year.

“I’ll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle. I had so many [thoughts], but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train… and to realize I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills,” Wilson told People magazine after the wedding. “Ever since the first day I met her, she’s always been, honestly, my best friend. We’ve been so close.”

Ciara already has a two year old son, Future Zahir, from a previous relationship with rap star Future. Wilson told Maria Shriver back in August how much he was enjoying being a stepfather to young Future.

“When I see this kid, he’s only 2 years old… He’s so sweet and so loving, always has a smile on his face. Always joking around, always running around the house,” he said.
