Ciara and Russell Wilson 'thrilled' by pregnancy

Ciara and Russell Wilson are "thrilled" to be expecting a child.

The 'Dance Like We're Making Love' singer and the sportsman are excited to welcome their first child together and Ciara's son Future, two, is looking forward to becoming a big brother.

A source told E! News: "Ciara and Russell are so happy to be expecting ... They are both so thrilled on the news. They told baby Future about his sibling that's in his mommy's belly. He seems excited.

"Ciara is feeling well. She has help around her if needed. Russell is in season now, but he is in touch with Ciara multiple times throughout the day."

The pair announced that Ciara was pregnant on their social media accounts on the singer's 31st birthday.

She wrote: "On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family.. and I'm excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give... (sic)"

Whilst, in his own post, he added: "The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay (sic)"

And Ciara will have no trouble losing her baby weight after the arrival of her son or daughter as she found it easy to drop the 60 pounds she put on whilst pregnant with Future.

She said previously: "I think when it comes to your body, it's all about the goals you set for yourself. I can honestly say when I first started my career, I weighed almost 20 lbs. more than I weigh now. Being healthy was a commitment for me. As a performer, I have to stay in shape, so it's become a way of life for me ...

"After delivering my son, a 9-lb. 10-oz. baby, and gaining 60 lbs., I was committed to [returning] to how I felt before I had him. Four months after having him, I was back to my original shape. There's something very empowering about that. Something about that gave me an extra pep in my step, and motivated me even more to go harder."
