Ciara is NOT in labor, nor has she already given birth, despite a completely false report. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight. A rep confirms the expectant star is still “happily pregnant.”

But on Thursday, MediaTakeOut purported to have “exclusive breaking news,” exclaiming in a headline, “Ciara’s CURRENTLY IN LABOR… And We’ve Got The LATEST NEWS On The STATE Of Her Pregnancy RIGHT HERE!!” According to the webloid’s story, Ciara “went into labor” Thursday morning, and, while delivering, “husband Russell Wilson is with her, along with members of both Ciara and Russell’s family.” The site assured “everything looks good from a medical standpoint,” and promised readers, “We’ll let you know when the baby is BORN.”

Well, MediaFakeOut never ran a follow-up or any kind of update. And Gossip Cop has a pretty good guess as to why. Ciara is still pregnant. She did not go into labor on Thursday, as wrongly claimed by the outlet. A rep for the singer exclusively tells Gossip Cop there’s “no truth” the report, and she still has a baby on board.

Gossip Cop isn’t sure whether MTO received a bad tip or simply concocted the claims. We do know, though, that just one day before the false labor report, the blog posted a picture of a still-pregnant Ciara, blaring that her stomach was “huge” and declaring “she’s probably due today.” The site claimed Ciara was due “any day now” and taking walks “in hopes that it induces labor.” The webloid added, “We hope that baby comes real real soon.”

Lo and behold, the very next day, MediaFakeOut announced, albeit wrongly, that Ciara was in labor. It is true that the pregnant star, who is already mom to son Future, is due in the relatively near future. But MTO and its fertile imagination jumped the gun. When Ciara does in fact welcome her second child, Gossip Cop will have the accurate news.
