Ciara recently took to social media to share a series of photos that reveal her curves and baby bump.
The singer, who is expecting her third child, was clad in a black bikini for the shoot. “The bump is bumpin,” she captioned the post.
The picture shows her wearing a matching black sarong, straw cowboy hat, sunglasses and gold bangles.
Ciara announced her pregnancy in January through an Instagram post. The baby will be her second child with husband Russell Wilson. She is also a mother to a five-year old kid, Future Zahir, through ex-fiance, rapper Future.
Ciara and Wilson shared a gender reveal video in April and said a baby boy is on the way.
The couple has been helping the community during the coronavirus pandemic. Last month, they told Jimmy Fallon that they had donated one million meals via Feeding America’s Food Lifeline.
“We have our foundation, the Why Not You foundation, and my dad used to always ask me this fundamental question, every day, almost. He would say, ‘Son, why not you?’ And it was the fundamental conscious and subconscious question that drove my whole life,” said Wilson.
He added, “We want to be able to impact with coronavirus right now, so what we did was donated a million meals to Feeding America in Seattle.”
Ciara shared on Instagram Wednesday some of what pregnancy has been like for her in the coronavirus crisis, as expectant parents across the world face various anxieties about having a baby during the pandemic.
The singer shared a video on Instagram of herself while she was at the doctor’s office for an ultrasound, as her husband, NFL star Russell Wilson, looked on via a video call on her cellphone.
Ciara noted that Wilson could not be there in person, as policies surrounding support people and prenatal care have changed in response to the pandemic.
Pregnant people across the U.S. have been required to attend in-person prenatal appointments alone due to no-visitor measures to curb the spread the COVID-19 virus. Additionally, many doctor’s offices have shifted prenatal check-ins to virtual visits.
Last month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered all hospitals in the state to allow partners in delivery rooms after two New York hospital systems banned partners in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Ciara is keeping up with her fitness routine while pregnant, and this is the motivation we needed! The singer, who is expecting her 3rd child, shared a clip from a recent workout, which explains why she looks so damn good!
Ciara isn’t letting pregnancy slow down her gym routine! The “Melanin” singer, 34, documented a pre-workout video on March 3 and admitted that she wasn’t feeling up to hitting the gym. But, she pushed herself to complete a pretty intense workout with her trainer.
“What’s up everybody? I feel so tired and I don’t feel like working out, but I’m going to do this with a smile,” she admitted in a since-expired clip on her Instagram Stories. “I get hot easily, I get tired all the time still. You would think that my tiredness would’ve gone away, but it has not gone away. What else? But, I’m going to still go an work out and I haven’t worked out in a while, so please pray for me,” she asked her 24 million followers.
Ciara’s next clip showed her entering the gym, where her trainer was already there and ready to put her to work. “I don’t want to see this guy,” the pregnant mother of two joked. “Let’s go, come on!” he replied, to which she said, “That’s not what I want to hear.”

When it was time to work up a sweat, Ciara started with overhead pulsing arm band pulls. When she raised her arms in the air, her baby bump poked out of the bottom of her white t-shirt. Ciara also donned a pair of baggy grey sweatpants.
Next up — medicine ball tosses! Ciara had to pick up a black medicine ball above her head and slam it on the floor. And, it was pretty impressive that she kept her blonde crimped hair down during her entire workout.
“It was a drag, but I made it,” she wrote on top of the final clip of her workout, adding a muscle and crying-laughing emoji.
Ciara is expecting her third child with her NFL quarterback husband Russell Wilson, 31. The couple welcomed daughter Sienna Princess, now 2, in April 2017. Ciara is also mom to son Future Zahir, 5, from a previous relationship with rapper Future.
The proud parents, who wed in England in July 2016, announced they were expecting on Instagram with a photo of Ciara in a bikini, showing off her bare baby bump. “Number 3,” Ciara wrote alongside the snap, giving credit to her husband for taking the picture.
