Over the weekend I received yet another confirmation from an industry insider that pop singer Ciara is pregnant with rapper Future's 5th or 6th baby.
The confirmation came from an executive at Ciara's record label, who obviously doesn't read my blog on a regular basis.
"Ciara pregnant," he texted. "I know," I text him back.
During a follow-up phone call, the industry veteran shared how Ciara and Future are "excited" about their bundle of joy. He said they wanted a popular website to break the news of her first pregnancy -- and how disappointed they were that the blogs spilt the TEA first.
Several national media outlets are anxious to break the pregnancy news right now. But Ciara wanted to wait until she's a married woman... to distance herself from Future's other groupie baby mamas who all had their children out of wedlock. Though it isn't confirmed, rumor has it that Future sired 5 children out of wedlock.
Future addressed Ciara's pregnancy in an interview on Hot 93.7. Without outright denying anything, he said simply, "it's a rumor."
But it's no coincidence that Ciara and Future announced their quickie engagement out of the blue last week -- less than a year after they started dating.
Ciara's mini baby bump was on full display when Ciara hit the stage for Abu Dhabi's “Beats on the Beach” last week. Cici wore thick leather outfits that were layered to conceal the baby bump. Cici has become something of an expert at holding her stomach in. But every now and then she is forced to exhale.
