At a growing 8 months, Ciara is on her final days before delivering her first son, with rapper Future. And she’s serving all types of pregnancy glow for W Magazine. Photographed by Carlos Serrao, the 28-year-old shares why she’s been so public about her pregnancy, connecting with her now fiance and getting her post-pregnancy body back into shape.
On having a ‘public’ pregnancy, as opposed to remaining private:
My mom and I don’t have a lot of photos of my early years. So I decided we should document everything. This is one of those moments you can’t repeat.
On how she met her now fiance, Future:
Music is a place where we have a very strong connection. We created ‘Body Party’, and that song created something else—and that’s why we’re here.
If she’ll allow her child to follow her musical footsteps:
It’s a really hard world. If that’s what their heart yearns for, then I’m down. I believe in allowing your child to be who they want to be—as long as they want to be something great.
On getting back in shape, after her pregnancy:
I will go on record saying so. As soon as the body says hit the gym, I’m gonna hit the gym. I’ve been having a lot of food fun.
