R&B singer Ciara and her husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, welcomed a baby girl into the world on Friday, April 28, 2017. The singer’s Instagram account officially welcomed the birth of Sienna Princess Wilson.
“Dear Sienna Princess Wilson. No matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We Love You,” Ciara wrote as the birth announcement, accompanied by an image of ocean waves.
Sienna Princess Wilson was born weighing 7 pounds, 13 ounces. She shares her middle name with her mother, whose full name is Ciara Princess Wilson.
The healthy little girl is the first child for the Wilsons, who married in June 2016. Ciara, 31, previously gave birth to a son, Future Zahir Wilburn, from a previous relationship with the rapper Future. Ciara’s son turns 3 in May 2017.
Earlier in April, Ciara’s Instagram photos revealed the pregnant Austin, Texas native looking fit, healthy, and fabulous in form-fitting black gowns and sky-high stiletto heels. Clearly her impending maternity did not slow the actress, model, and “Queen of Crunk&B” down.
Ciara first came to international attention in 2004 with her album “Goodies,” featuring the title track as well as hit singles “1,2 Step” featuring Missy Elliot and “Oh” featuring Ludacris. Her 2005 hit “Lose Control” won her a Grammy award for Best Short Form Music Video. Ciara’s sixth studio album, “Jackie,” was released in 2015, and in January 27 the singer announced she had signed a new recording contract with Warner Bros.
Although chanteuse Ciara has made more headlines for her personal life than her music in recent years, many have not forgotten what a glorious sound this sensational songbird can create. In 2017, we will once again be graced with the presence of Ciara’s songs, and her new album can’t come soon enough. For fans who have been awaiting new music since the 2014 release of Jackie, it’s definitely time for some new Ciara tunes.
After all, very few singers have the technical talent and gravitas that Ciara possesses. Ever since she first popped up on the music scene back in 2004, hip-hop fans and R&B lovers alike have been excited to groove to her tunes. Wowing the world with “Goodies” and “1,2 Step”, she put the world on notice that a new R&B princess was in town. In fact, the title couldn’t be more fitting; Ciara’s full birth name is Ciara Princess Wilson.
Whether she’s doing music videos, selling out shows or making appearances, there are very few performers who can command a crowd the way Ciara can. With a unique blend of talent, showmanship and visual appeal, this brilliant woman is one of the select individuals who will undoubtedly continue to captivate crowds for years to come. With the R&B sound evolving so much over the past three years, it’s anyone’s guess what her album will sound like this time around. The only thing that we know for sure is how eagerly her fans will be awaiting it.
