VIDEO: Ciara announces her pregnancy on live TV

Ciara is expecting her first child with her rapper fiancé Future.

The R&B star announced the happy news on a Jan. 14 episode of The View, after Barbara Walters asked her to confirm rumours of a pregnancy. Ciara responded by opening her jacket to reveal a noticeable baby bump.

This will be the first baby for the 28-year-old mother-to-be. Future, 30, is already a father to three children with three different women; he has an 11-year-old son, a 4-year-old daughter and a 1-year-old son.

The couple, who have been dating for more than a year, became engaged in October after the rapper presented the 28-year-old songstress with a 15-carat diamond ring on her birthday.

Ciara is due to give birth in May.
