"So GRATEFUL to the amazingly kind peeps [...] for literally showering me with [mama] and [baby] [must-haves] for the magical road ahead!!" Candiace captioned the video in which she sat next to a MamaRoo Multimotion Baby Swing from 4moms that played the nursery rhyme "Head Shoulders Knees and Toes."

Details on Candiace Dillard Bassett's Pregnancy

Candiace first announced mid-April that she and Chris were expecting their first child together. "I'm about 13 just about in the second trimester," Candiace told Entertainment Tonight at the time of her announcement. "It's been weird, but also very wonderful, I think, to kind of keep it to ourselves to this point."

The "Fine Wine" songstress since shared more details in an Instagram Live on April 22, opening up about her struggles with extreme nausea and exhaustion. 

"So I'll eat, not wanting to eat, but knowing if I don't eat, I'm about to be laid up," Candiace explained during the live session. "And then 30 minutes later, it's like that wasn't enough, we're nauseous again. And then a lot of days I don't want to eat but I have to. So I went from loving food, enjoying food — and sometimes I still do, but a lot of days, I don't want to but I have to."

She continued: "I'm tired. I'm like, tired. And I was told, 'Oh, second trimester, you're going to get all this energy.' Um, where is it? Where is the energy?"
