Fans of Ciara and Russell Wilson have patientialy awaited the arrival of their baby, and now finally, they’ve welcomed their first child together.
Momma and Daddy Wilson took to Instagram on Friday night to reveal the news of Sienna Princess Wilson’s birth at 7 p.m. that evening.
“Dear Sienna Princess Wilson, No matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We Love You. Love, Mommy & Daddy. 7:03 pm 7 lbs 13 oz. 4.28.2017,”

The footballer duplicated the note and shared it on his own page.
Fans have been anticipating the birth of the famous couple’s baby for months — especially in recent weeks, when Ciara looked extremely pregnant as her due date approached.
The news of her pregnancy was announced back in October following speculation.
“I’m excited to finally share one of the greatest gifts of all that God could give,” the 30-year-old singer wrote on her Instagram page on her birthday.
Ciara and the Seattle Seahawks quarterback married in July — just four months after getting engaged.
Since Ciara and Russell tied the knot, fans were speculating when they’d be expecting their first child. The couple waited to make the announcement on a significant day – Ciara’s 31st birthday.
On Tuesday, Oct. 25, she and Russell took to social media with a telling photo that included heartfelt captions about their highly anticipated bundle of joy. Initially, Ciara posted a picture of her and Russell enjoying dinner for her birthday. But, then she shared a second photo that said it all.
“On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family.. and I’m excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give…,” Ciara wrote via Instagram.
Russell also took to Facebook with a statement about the pregnancy. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback proclaimed his family is ” the greatest blessing of all.”
The couple publicly boasted about remaining celibate until marriage and were quick to brag about their sex lives once they tied the knot.
While little Sienna is the first child for the couple, Ciara has a 2-year-old son with her ex, the rapper Future.
