She timed the announcement to her birthday, writing that she “received an abundance of love from friends and family,” but that she was “excited to finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give."

Ciara and Wilson tied the knot on July 6 this year at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
