She made the announcement when she appeared on “The View,” E! reports. The singer has been doing a pretty good job of hiding the bump, which she put on full display during her appearance on the talk show.
And one of her A-list pals must have been watching the episode, because shortly after she sat down on the talk show, Nicki Minaj sent some love to the expecting parents. “Congrats @ciara and @1future!!!!!!” she wrote on Twitter.

Ciara and Future went public with their romance in early 2013 and got engaged last October. Future, 29, asked her to marry him with a 15-carat ring while she was in New York City celebrating her 28th birthday.
“I feel different but it’s great,” Future told MTV News shortly after the proposal. “It’s a great situation and I’m happy about it. I’m excited about it and I know she’s super happy. I just feel good to be able to make someone happy.”
Rumors began to surface as early as last December that the Grammy-nominated singer was expecting when she started to wear baggier clothes that hid her signature abs. This is the first child for Ciara. Future reportedly has three children from three previous relationships.
Not only are they expecting, but they have also worked together and got pretty personal in the video for “Body Party.” “When you do step outside, you put yourself in a position to where people are going to be able to judge and they could criticize and they can give their opinion and that’s something I used to always fear,” she told MTV News last year of going public with the rapper.
She added, “That’s where I am at this day and time in my life and I’m also with someone who makes me extremely comfortable to be that way, which is really important. The way that he makes me feel, why not? If you love somebody you should express it, and now I understand that. There’s nothing sexy about hiding your love. There’s nothing sexy about people not acknowledging each other.”
