Royalty has founds its way to the hearts and lives of singer Ciara and football player Russell Wilson by way of their new baby girl, according to People!
The “Body Party” performer, 31, and her Seattle Seahawks-playing hubby welcomed the arrival of little Sienna Princess Wilson on Friday evening, as Ciara herself shared in an Instagram post that, consequently, notified the world of the happy news.

“The little bundle of joy is the R&B singer’s second child,” E! News further explains of Ciara’s delivery of Sienna Princess, “as she gave birth to Future Zahir Wilburn,” her son from her previous relationship with rapper Future, “in May 2014.”
In the Instagram upload, which features an image of Ciara kneeling near the waves of a peaceful beachfront, the proud parent promises to always love and protect her new baby, through girlhood and beyond.
“Dear Sienna Princess Wilson,” the songstress wrote with the snap, “no matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We love you. Love, Mommy and Daddy.”
Ciara first announced that she and Russell were expecting their first child together last October on her birthday and ever since then, she has continuously updated her social media accounts with images of her growing belly to the delight of her followers.
“On this special birthday, I received an abundance of love from friends and family,” she relayed in her first pregnancy proclamation, also posted on Instagram, “and I’m excited to finally share one of the greatest gifts of all that God could give.”
Russell would return the favor and the love to his famous wife with a sweet Instagram moment of his very own.
While the two lovebirds were more than fine with documenting their journey to parenthood, both Ciara and her hubby chose to purposely hold back on revealing their baby girl’s name and gender to the media in order to maintain a bit of privacy for themselves and their expanding family.
“[We] want to make it special,” Russell explained of the hush-hush to Extra’s Mario Lopez back in February, after first confirming that he and Ciara had picked out a name.
“It will be a good one,” he promised.
“We both have some creative sense, so it’s gonna be cool.”
The music artist, who married Wilson last July following a contentious split with Future, reiterated last November to Entertainment Tonight that she and Russell had worked out those details with one another behind the scenes, but refused to say any more on the subject.
She did, however, get a bit chatty about the excitement big brother Future was exuding in relation to seeing the baby girl grow inside of his mom’s tummy.
“He rubs my belly and he says, ‘Hi baby. I love you, baby,” she recalled, “and then he puts my shirt down and says, ‘Bye, bye baby.’ So, that’s his own thing.”
A thing that, incidentally, became more recurrent than she ever expected, but adored nonetheless.
“[He’ll] see a baby walking, smaller than him and walking — it doesn’t matter, it’s a baby,” Ciara said with a giggle.
“So, he goes, ‘baby’ and he looks at me and he goes, ‘Mama, baby,’ and [then] he tries to pull my sweatshirt up [again],” Ciara remarked lovingly.
Right before giving birth to Sienna Princess, Ciara gushed to E! News about the special attachment she had to her expanding family.
“You feel the definition of what ‘being one’ is,” the mother mentioned, “and it’s really cool.”
“Nothing compares to what this feels like.”
Our congratulations go out to Ciara and Russell on the arrival of their baby girl! Feel free to leave your well-wishes in the comments.
