Following a difficult spell that played out quite publicly, Ciara is on quite the winning streak.
Professionally, she’s more omnipresent than ever and the positive vibrations have carried over into her personal life. Indeed, as widely reported, the Grammy winner recently hit announced her engagement to Seahawks football star Russell Wilson.
Celebrating her current season of success, the R&B star beams a-front of ESSENCE magazine’s May 2016 issue.
Apt, given that she’s a headliner at the hotly anticipated ESSENCE Music Festival in June, the feature sees the stunner wax honest about her break-up with rapper Future as well as the love she has in her life now.
Quotes and a second cover below…
On Planning Baby Future’s Pregnancy:
“I’d always wanted to have my own family. And my pregnancy was planned when I was at a point in my life when I was finally ready to take on the responsibility.”
On The Future Break-Up/Drama:
“That wasn’t necessarily part of my vision. But the moment I realized I was going to be a single mother, I had to reflect and reorganize my thoughts. I decided to trust that God had a plan for me, and move forward one day at a time.”
On New Boo Russell Wilson:
“I remember telling my friend the kind of guy I wanted: a God-fearing man with a very fun spirit who loves kids and would really, truly care for me. I was very specific because I do believe you can have it all.”
Armed with all this fairytale narrative and great, it would be smart to activate new music activity. The climate…more than anytime in recent years…feels…”right.”
