Ciara: I don’t want to lose myself.
Ciara who is known for her hot body, her amazing music and her love life is speaking up. In a recent interview, the 31-year-old Atlanta native discusses her relationship with her NFL star husband Russell Wilson, her son Baby Future and how excited he is to be a big brother. Check out a few experts from the interview below.
On her relationship with Russell and the strength of their relationship:
When you know they’re going to be your champion, always in the corner. Whether it’s your relationship partner, your friend, whomever, then you’ve got to make sure to keep it moving. If people aren’t lifting you up, even if you’re the strongest person in the world, eventually it does chip away at you. You don’t even realize that you’re losing yourself. And that’s the scariest place to be in life. I don’t want to lose myself. I love myself too much. I love life too much.
On how vulnerability is a form of strength:
Once you’re able to really be truly truthful with yourself, it is life changing, you have way more compassion than you imagine, you’re sensitive to the right things. Baby Future taught me patience, above all.
On how Baby Future is ready to be a big brother:
He’ll randomly pull my shirt up and be like, ‘I want to see the baby, Hello baby. How you doing, baby? I love you, baby. Okay, talk to you later, baby. Bye, bye.’ Then he’ll kiss me on my belly and put my shirt back down.
On the deal she made with herself while traveling:
I made this deal with myself, that whenever I travel, and there’s a foreign language, I must pick something up. I love learning languages. It’s also a way of paying respect to my international fans.
On her upcoming album:
I want to make the world dance.
On one thing she feels like she missed out on:
I didn’t get to go to college because of my career, that is the one thing I fantasize about sometimes.
On her work with The “I Am Girl ‘’ Organization:
We talk about what they’re going through it’s kind of like a circle of trust amongst women, you share the good and the bad. One message I try to impart is that they’re not alone in their journey, and that we all essentially experience the same things, we just have a different way to tell the story.
On society today and celebrating women:
The world’s actually coming together we’re more socially engaged than ever before. There’s this unspoken word: love. When you meet successful powerful women, you show each other love, because it is a tough environment.
On the simplicity of living in Seattle:
I can wear my sweatpants to the grocery store, and I’m not going to have to worry about somebody that’s going to snap me looking tore up from the floor up.
On how excited she is for this upcoming period in her life:
I’m just super excited about this time in my life. Like, Oh my gosh, I can see my son running around, and soon it’s going to be two of these creatures running around! Our hands will be full of non-stop action.
