See How Exactly Ciara Hid Her Pregnancy From Us

A guide to style and secret keeping.

Published October 26, 2016

Congratulations are in order for Ciara and Russell Wilson, who finally confirmed the rumors today that they're expecting their first child together. 

Though she's dropped a few hints along the way, CiCi has managed to keep her bump admirably under wraps while she waited out the first trimester before breaking the news to her fans. Not an easy task when you're photographed every day, from every angle. Here's a quick look at Ciara's street style over the past few weeks, which doubles as a great guide to hiding a pregnancy from the prying eyes of the paparazzi:

The bump watch first started when Ciara showed up to a Revlon event wearing a flowing white suit that suspiciously hung over her belly, which she normally loves to show off after all that hard work getting her body back following her first pregnancy:

From there, it's been non-stop covered up ensembles, each one drawing focus away from her belly and on to other parts of her body:

Finally, CiCi and Russ confirmed what was starting to seem pretty obvious — they're expecting their first child!

Congrats to the beautiful couple on their growing family.
