Ciara confirmed that she and fiancé Future – real name Nayvadius D Wilburn – are expecting a son as she celebrated the impending birth of her first child with a blue-themed baby shower in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
The 28-year-old – who announced her pregnancy on January 14 after months of speculation – also posted a photo to Instagram of an adorable miniature pair of navy blue and white Air Jordan high-top sneakers gifted to her by New York Knicks basketball player Carmelo Anthony – the husband of her best friend and party host.
‘Thanks Uncle Mel! @CarmeloAnthony. #Family,’ she captioned the sweet image.
Guest dined on a selection of southern specialties during lunch, with crawfish gumbo, creamed corn, fried chicken, Belgian waffles and peach cobbler all on the delicious menu.
The baby is here! Evelyn delivered her baby boy by Dodgers baller Carl Crawford this past Saturday 3/22/14. He was eight pounds, 21 inches long, and came out quickly with 4 big pushes. His name is Carl Leo Crawford, named after his father of course, and the coupke is said to be very happy and excited. Carl and her 20 yr. old daughter Shaniece Hairston were by her side during the delivery and she says she can’t wait to show him off to the world. Congrats to the couple on their new baby, and we can’t wait to see him.
