It’s a boy for Ciara and her fiance, Nayvadius Wilburn, better known by his stage name Future.
The couple welcomed their son, Future Zahir Wilburn, into the world on May 19. Ciara confirmed the arrival of the baby on Instagram on May 20:
The 28-year-old singer was recently interviewed by W magazine, and said that she’s getting parenting advice from her friend and mother of North West, Kim Kardashian.
“You don’t really know your child until they get here, you don’t know their personality,” Ciara told the magazine was one piece of advice Kim gave her. “There’s a lot of learning to do. I loved that advice.”
Ciara doesn’t plan on taking a long maternity leave. She wants to jump into her wedding-planning and getting back to her pre-baby weight.
“As soon as the body says ‘Hit the gym,’ I’m going to hit the gym. I’ve been having a lot of food fun,” she told W. “I don’t want to sound too cocky, but I consider myself superwoman.”
The baby is the first child for Ciara, but Future has three children from previous relationships.
