Ciara recently celebrated her pregnancy with friends at her star-studded baby shower. Wearing a beautiful caftan and with picture-perfect skin that appeared to be sans makeup, Ciara was a lovely mommy-to-be.
We can’t help but think that as a star that loves to show her toned mid-section, Ciara must be taking the best care of her “baby bump” skin while she has her precious bun in the oven. Just check her out at the 2013 BET Awards.
