Ciara — and her baby boy on the way! — are staying cool this summer.

In the latest of the pregnant singer's stunning maternity photos, Ciara poses submerged in a pool, showing off her baby bump in a black-two piece.

Taken from the side, the black-and-white shot shows the 34-year-old "Goodies" hitmaker cradling her belly while looking down, the water coming up to shoulder level.

Ciara's Saturday post was presented without a caption but had garnered over 1 million likes and 6,300 comments by Monday morning.

"So BEAUTIFUL! 🤗💙," wrote Kevin Hart's pregnant wife Eniko, who's currently expecting the couple's second child together, a baby girl.

Ciara and husband Russell Wilson announced that she was expecting baby No. 3 in January, sharing a photo of the singer in a bikini on Instagram at the time, showing off her bare baby belly.

"They're so excited to expand their family," a source close to the couple told PEOPLE.

Wilson, 31, and Ciara's kids helped their parents share the sex of the baby on the way in April — with the singer's son Future declaring he was hoping for a baby brother.

"YEAH!" Future screamed excitedly in the video shared to Wilson's Twitter account, running around the yard as soon as blue smoke and confetti filled the air.

On Sunday, Wilson cited his wife being pregnant as his reason for concerns about the football season amid the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

"I am concerned. My wife is pregnant. @NFL Training camp is about to start.. And there's still No Clear Plan on Player Health & Family Safety," the Seattle Seahawks quarterback wrote on Twitter. "We want to play football but we also want to protect our loved ones #WeWantToPlay."

Wilson was one of the many NFL stars on Sunday to express concerns about the upcoming season on social media and use the hashtag "#WeWantToPlay."

Among the athletes to do so include J.J. Watt, Drew Brees, Richard Sherman, Malcolm Jenkins, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley and Larry Ogunjobi.
