She told People magazine that she didn’t want to reveal the gender of her baby.
“I do know the sex of my baby, but again I want to keep that special as well,” she told
But sadly that’s easier said than done when your partner has a tough time not revealing the gender to interviewers during media appearances.
The Body Party
singer’s fiance, hip hip artist Future,
was interviewing with Tim Westwood
when he repeatedly referred to the baby as “he” and “him”.
“The baby listening to music already now,” he said. “She [Ciara] sent me a video while I was over here with the headphones on her stomach. ‘The baby just listened to ‘Turn on the Lights,’ [Ciara said] ‘The version with me and you’. And I said you got to play the ‘anytime’ version for him. Let him hear that. See how he kick. She played it for him and he started kicking like crazy.”
He also said that they have a baby name, that Ciara has “been shopping” for the baby and clearing out of closets and the guest room for the baby’s stuff.
See the video here and the banter about the baby starts at 9:23:
Eventually the “Turn on the Lights” recording-artist told Westwood, who had previously asked about the gender, “see you got the sex out of me and you didn’t even know it.”
Future tried to refer to the baby as a “she” later and suggest it may be a girl but too late.
Today, most sites are reporting that Ciara is having a baby boy but do we really know? “You can’t believe the blogs,” Future said. “They done told so many lies on me.”
Recall early in 2013 when Kristen Bell
was pregnant, people assumed she was having a boy
when she told Ellen
that her fiance Dax Shepard
would soon get a “tiny buddy” to go “off roading” with.
We know that was wrong! We figured it out after photos of her baby shower
showed lots of pink and guests going to her baby shower bearing gifts wrapped in pink.
She eventually gave birth to a daughter, Lincoln.
Baby showers are generally when the public gets a clue of a celebrity baby’s gender.
Instagram photos of balloons spelling out “boy” at Rachel Zoe‘s shower in 2013 revealed that she was having a baby boy even though the reality TV star and designer had previously said she would not share the gender with the public before the baby’s birth.
In 2011, paparazzi shot January Jones shopping for blue
colored clothing at a local Target.
Also that year, Jessica Simpson
accidentally told US Weekly
that she was having a boy after saying she wanted to keep the gender private.
My kid’s going to think I’m pretty cool!” she told the magazine ” My kid’s going to think I’m pretty cool! This is a cool thing to welcome him to the world with.”
Keeping the baby’s gender secret if you are a celebrity is a challenge but it can be done. All they have to do is not shop for the baby in public, do interviews or have baby showers. Simple. (smile)
