After months of speculation, 28-year-old singer and actress Ciara confirmed she’s expecting her first child with fiancé, rapper-producer Future (who has three children from previous relationships). The couple became engaged in October.

Ciara will likely use her “Basic Instinct” to choose a fab name for her babe, but we’ve come up with some ideas for her:


Elliott: Her biggest hit, “1, 2 Step”, was co-written and recorded by Missy Elliott.

Austin: Ciara was born in Austin, Texas.

Rider: To commemorate her third album, Fantasy Ride.

Justin: The single “Love Sex Magic” featuring Justin Timberlake, became a worldwide hit in ‘09.

Jay: She was the female face of Jay-Z’s Rocawear clothing line.


Princess: This regal choice is the singer’s middle name, and apropos since she’s called the “Princess of Crunk&B.”

Fantasia: Her first success was the song “Got Me Waiting,” written for American Idol’s Fantasia Barrino.

Becca:  She played Becca Whiley in the MTV production All You’ve Got.

Janet: Ciara said she reached “a career pinnacle” when she was featured on Janet Jackson’s album Discipline.

Rhythm: Contemporary R&B is what this girl is known for!
