The 31-year-old "I Bet" singer stepped out with friends on Wednesday night at Madeo Italian Kitchen, donning a skintight, all-black ensemble and adorably showing off her growing baby bump. Ciara was all smiles as she exited the West Hollywood, California, eatery around 10:30 p.m., layering a chic black jacket and knee-high boots (sans heel) over her T-shirt and pants.
According to an eyewitness, Ciara was joined at the restaurant by another couple and stayed for about five hours. Her husband, NFL quarterback Russell Wilson, was not present. "Ciara looked happy and smiley," the source says. "She was in a really good mood."
Ciara has not been shy about showing off her burgeoning belly in recent months. Since announcing her pregnancy in October, Ciara has posted frequent updates on social media and even hit the American Music Awards red carpet in a figure-hugging Stephane Rolland Couture dress, telling ET that she was "very happy and comfortable."
This will be Ciara's second child, but her first with Wilson. The couple tied the knot on July 6, 2016.
Ciara welcomed her first child, a son, with ex-fiance Future in May of 2014. She told ET that the 2-year-old is already embracing his new role as a big brother.
"He rubs my belly and he says, 'Hi, baby. I love you, baby,' ... and then he puts my shirt down and says, 'Bye bye, baby.' So, that's his own thing," she said. "He sees a baby walking, smaller than him and walking -- it doesn't matter, it's a baby. So, he goes, 'baby' and he looks at me and he goes, 'Mama, baby' --and he tries to pull my sweatshirt up."
