After a year of dating, the couple were married in July last year.

In explaining the decision to Cosmopolitan South Africa in January this year, Ciara said it was there intention to create a great “friendship” first.

“I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship, and once you know you’re really great friends and you’re what we call ‘equally yoked’ where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone,” she said at the time.

“Knowing that you’ll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important and very powerful.”

Sienna is the second child for the singer, who gave birth to son Future Jr. in May 2014 with ex-fiance Future.
