Ciara posted a sweet black and white photo of herself with Wilson's arms wrapped around her, cradling her bump, and said she was "excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give."

The dad to be and NFL star shared the same photo on his page, writing, "The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful.#BabyWilsonOnTheWay."

Ciara is already mom to son Future Jr., 2, her son with ex-fiancé and rapper Future, but this will be Wilson's first child. The couple was engaged in March after a year-long courtship, when Wilson proposed in the Seychelles following Paris Fashion Week. They married on July 6 at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
