Yes, his first name is Win.

Ciara spoke with ET's Nischelle Turner about who chose the name. Spoiler alert, it was the only quarterback in NFL history to lead his team to a winning season in each of his first eight seasons. 

"That is Daddy. I give credit to Dad. Oh my gosh, I'm gonna get emotional," Ciara told ET. "The hormones, I will tell every pregnant mom, they're real, OK? They don't stop. Even when you have the baby, and you're just fresh out, it happens. But they're good tears, praise the Lord."

"Russell would always be like, 'Here's Win shortstop,' he like, plays a whole thing out. And then obviously, Harrison, it was his dad's first name, which is really sweet and precious," she continued. "There was a lot of love and thought put into it. Russ, we would talk about names, and Russ kind of always had this name Win in the rotation, years ago, before we knew we were having a girl. He had all the good names and Win won. So Win is the name and he's so cute, he's so precious."

The middle name “Harrison” is a tribute to Wilson's late father, Harrison Wilson III, who passed away at just 55 due to complications from diabetes.

It didn't take long for Win Harrison Wilson to start living up to his namesake. 

"The craziest thing is that I literally pushed Win out in like eight minutes. So that was, like, fastest [delivery] I've ever experienced. It was really smooth, thank God."

Now a mother of three, Ciara says she's "having some of the best days of [her] life." 

"I'm having the best days. I keep saying, I've been saying this for a little while, God has been good. But I'm having some of the best days of my life. It's really fun."

Win is the couple’s second child together. Their first child, Sienna Princess, was born in April 2017, while Wilson serves as stepdad to Future Jr., who is Ciara’s son from a previous relationship.
