Pregnant Ciara has already picked new baby's name

Ciara has already decided on a name for her unborn baby.

The American singer confirmed she was expecting a child with new husband Russell Wilson last month (Oct16), and showed off her blossoming baby bump on the red carpet at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (20Nov16).

Revealing that she is aware of the infant’s gender, Ciara explained that she and her American football quarterback beau have already selected a name for their baby-to-be.

"I do know (the gender). I'm not telling, not yet, but I'm very excited," she told reporters at the event, adding that she and Russell chose the name together. "We've already done that actually."

Ciara added that her two-year-son son Future Zahir, whom she shares with her ex-fiance, rapper Future, is very excited to become a big brother. The 31-year-old says her little boy is "obsessed" with babies and can’t wait to meet the new arrival.

"He rubs my belly and he says, 'Hi baby. I love you, baby,' ... and then he puts my shirt down and says, 'Bye, bye baby.' So, that's his own thing," she told Entertainment Tonight. "He sees a baby walking, smaller than him and walking - it doesn't matter, it's a baby. So, he goes, 'baby' and he looks at me and he goes, 'Mama, baby' - and he tries to pull my sweatshirt up."

The AMAs was Ciara’s first big event since announcing her pregnancy, with the Goodies singer certainly making a statement in a stunning black and white Stephane Rolland Couture dress and Giuseppe Zanotti black satin platform heels. The gown featured a dipped hem and puff ball skirt which was teamed with a black turtleneck top.

"I think if my bump was a little bigger, this might not have worked," she smiled. "I'm super excited about my dress and very happy and comfortable."
