Ciara admits the sex of her unborn child didn't initially match her ''preference''.
Ciara was surprised when she found out the sex of her baby.
The 'Body Party' singer is pregnant with her first child but, despite remaining tight-lipped about whether she is carrying and boy or a girl, she admits the gender didn't initially match her ''preference''.
She said: ''I did have a preference before I found out what it was. I had a preference at first and when I was told what it was, I felt it's going to be what it's supposed to be.''
However, Ciara, 28, insists her fiancé Future - whom she got engaged to in October last year - was pleased when the sex of their child was revealed.
She added: ''It was definitely different [to what I thought] and my fiancé got what he wanted. I'm excited.''
The brunette beauty admits she feels like a little kid at Christmas time waiting for her tiny tot to be born into the world.
She said: ''It really is a blessing. It's the most exciting time in my life. I'm really excited, like a little kid. Like when a kid is getting ready for Christmas like I can't wait to see what's underneath that tree.''
Meanwhile, Ciara - who sparked rumours she was expecting after she was pictured wearing a number of baggy tops - believes pregnancy is ''sexy'' and she's determined to embrace her curves.
Speaking to HuffPost Live, she explained: ''I believe that pregnancy within itself is sexy... I kind of like it actually not being about abs and all that stuff. I really love this phase that I'm going through in my life and I just want to live in it. I just want to be a mummy-to-be.''
