Ciara Pregnant Belly

“I believe I wasn’t given this platform to perform in front of millions just for the sake of dancing and singing,” she says. “There’s gotta be something more to it.”

The final days of a pregnancy can be riddled with anxiety and impatience for baby's impending arrival, but for Ciara and Russell Wilson, it seems they were filled with nothing but peace. At least on Instagram.

The singer shared a stylish black-and-white video to her Instagram account documenting how the couple spent their last moments together before their daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson, was born on April 28. The clip shows the duo — who married in a romantic ceremony in the English countryside last July — enjoying some sweet together time by the beach, being playful on the swings, walking hand-in-hand along the ocean, and stealing kisses as the tide rolled in. "You bring us peace," Ciara wrote alongside the video.

The documentary-style clip also shows Wilson taking photographs of his pregnant wife on the sandy shores, one of which Ciara later used soon to announce the birth of their daughter. The shot features Ciara in all white, kneeling and cradling her stomach, and looking out at the ocean waves. "Dear Sienna Princess Wilson," the caption on the photo reads. "No matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We Love You." In addition to that sweet message, Ciara also shared Sienna's birth date and time (April 28 at 7:03 P.M.) and weight (7 pounds 13 ounces) with the photograph.

Sienna is Ciara and Wilson's first child together. (Ciara has a son, Future Zahir, with her former fiancé, rapper Future.) The birth of Sienna caps off a whirlwind two years for the couple, who began dating in April 2015, were engaged in March 2016, married in July, and then announced they were pregnant in October with — naturally — a beautiful Instagram shot of Wilson embracing Ciara's growing belly. Sending lots of well wishes their way!
