Ciara Harris, the 29-year-old singer who has been publicly proclaiming her vow of abstinence with NFL quarterback boyfriend Russell Wilson, decided to respond to recent pregnancy rumors.

The singer called in to the nationally syndicated "Russ Parr Morning Show" recently where she addressed pregnancy rumors started by fans who noticed that her normally slim figure was a little thicker around the mid-section. Since some believed this was evidence of pregnancy, Ciara decided to respond by saying, "Of course not!"

The mother of 1-year-old Future Zahir Wilburn, whom she shares with hip-hop rapper Future, said giving birth to her son might be the cause of her bulging belly during a recent performance.

"You know, it's so funny, I might have had a cheeseburger a little too close to showtime. What's funny is that I've learned, after pregnancy, your body changes differently," she said on the radio show. "Listen, I can have a salad and it'll be like 'aww junk!' [My stomach] was not that big, they exaggerated that. I'm not carrying anything in my belly but good food."

Still, the singer has spoken about having children with the Seattle Seahawks' Wilson in the future.

"I definitely [want more kids], yes. [Russell and I] discuss a lot of things … a lot of good things," she previously told People.

Even if the couple plans to have children together, the athlete and singer made it clear that their goal is to remain celibate until they are married. Wilson, 26, revealed that God told him to lead Ciara in their vow of celibacy last July when speaking to Pastor Miles McPherson and his congregation at The Rock Church in San Diego, California.

"I asked her, 'What would you do if we took all that other stuff off the table and did it Jesus' way, no sex? ... I knew God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me, and to bless so many people with the impact that she has and I have," Wilson told McPherson. "We're not going to be perfect, by any means. But He's anointed both of us and He's calling for us to do something special."

Aside from gushing about dating her NFL star boyfriend, Ciara is focused on parenting the child she has. According to the entertainer, she is already teaching her son to praise Jesus.

"The other day we were saying, 'Thank you, Jesus' and I would say, 'Say, thank you!' And he would say, 'Tank you!' I'd say, 'Je-sus' and he'd say, 'Yee-yus,'" she previously told People about her son. "It is so sweet!"

Ciara has been vocal about some of her spiritual beliefs recently and previously spoke about her son being a gift from God.

"Honestly, I feel like everything in life happens for a reason and my son has been the greatest gift that God has given me in my life and been the most game-changing thing that's happened to my life, in a necessary way," she said on Power 105.1 FM's syndicated radio show "The Breakfast Club" earlier this year.
