It seemed just like yesterday that Ciara was body partying all over the place. Now, the singer is happily engaged and expecting her first child with rapper/ longtime beau Future, as she recently revealed on ABC talk show The View.
"I feel so happy after everything that's been happening over the past few years, from being engaged and getting a fresh start to my music, everything with L.A. Reid, then of course now, being able to share something so precious to me with the world, it's a very free feeling as a woman," she tells People.
CiCi also discusses waiting for the right moment to drop the bomb to her closest, especially her parents, whom she happened to capture on video once she let the cat out of the bag.
"I think it's important I do things on my time," she says.
As for the baby's gender and due date, Future's wifey-to-be keeps a tight lip: "I can't tell the due date but I can say I'm not too far from being in the delivery room and I do know the sex of the baby but I do want to keep that special as well."
She does reveal that her wedding plans have been underway and that they worked perfectly in conjunction with her pregnancy. Hit play on the full interview above.
