The pair famously let everyone know that they were abstaining from sex in the run-up to their wedding – and then shared the news on Snapchat about how good their honeymoon sex was.

Both had previously spoken of their desire to start a family so news of Ciara’s pregnancy is very exciting – congrats, guys!
