Congratulations to Ciara and Future, who became parents this week. The singer gave birth to a 9 lb. 10 oz. baby boy. The couple named the baby after his daddy, giving him the name Future Zahir Wilburn. In typical celebrity fashion, Ciara shared the news of her son's birth with the world by posting a picture of him on Instagram, confirming his name and birth weight in the caption:

Baby Future OK, so it isn't much, but it's a glimpse!

Future already seems to be a doting dad, in awe of his new son. Shortly after Ciara gave birth he tweeted, "U deserve it all..." Then, the next day he tweeted his son's name, "Baby FUTURE."

Ciara announced her pregnancy on "The View" in January, three months after she and Future became engaged. This is the couple's first child.
