Popstar Ciara has welcomed her first child with rapper and producer fiancé Future.

According to New York Post's Page Six, the 28-year-old singer welcomed a bouncing baby boy in Los Angeles on 19 May.

Although it is their first child together, Future - real name Nayvadius Cash - has three children from three previous relationships; an 11-year-old son, a four-year-old daughter, and another son, who is 13 months old.

The couple have yet to officially announce the birth but fans may have to wait even longer to find out the tot's name.

"I went with what felt right in my soul and my gut. I didn't second guess it," she previously said about choosing the moniker.

Ciara, who is close friends with Kim Kardashian, confirmed she was expecting when she appeared on The View chat show back in January.

When Barbara Walters asked the Goodies star if she wanted to confirm or deny the reports, Ciara replied: "Of course I would love to", before standing up and opening her waistcoat to let her belly do the talking.

She then let out a slow "Yeeeeessss" before adding: "I'm so excited for this year."

Wedding bells will soon be ringing for the proud parents, who are expected to tie the knot later this year.

Future popped the question with a 15 Carat diamond ring during her birthday weekend in October.

"Today Has 2 Be Like One Of The Sweetest Days Of My Life! #TheBestBirthdayEver. If I'm Dreaming I Don't Want to Wake up! (sic)" she tweeted at the time.
