Heavily pregnant Ciara who is preparing to welcome her third child is sharing her etheral glow on the August issue of British Vogue.
The multiple award-winning singer who showcased her blossoming baby bump in a ribbed cream maxi dress in an interview spoke about the experience with pregnancy during the coronavirus pandemic, as well as parenting during the lockdown and the importance of having a father figure like her husband, Russell Wilson.
On going to the hospital for her ultrasound, Ciara said: “I wanted to be really cautious. I had a little ziplock bag of gloves for the appointment and then I had my mask. When I went from one room to the other, I switched to a new pair of gloves.
‘When the image of the baby came on the screen, I FaceTimed Russ in the car so that he could see. We women carry the baby, but for my husband, being in the room and listening to the heartbeat in real-time is one of his ways of connecting. For him not to be part of that was a symbol of this time that we’re living through.”
On the struggles of parenting during the lockdown, Ciara, who announced her third pregnancy in January 2020, said: “That break in the day when you send your kids to school is a luxury.”
The heavily pregnant Ciara added the importance of Russell being a father figure in her unborn son’s life is of the upmost importance to her. Highlighting the importance of Russell being a father figure in her unborn son’s life, she said: “Your son gets to see how his dad treats a woman, and your daughter gets to see how you are loved. I’m a daddy’s girl, and my dad’s love is what saved me in situations in my life when I could have taken a left turn.”
The “Level Up” hitmaker is expecting a son with Russell. It will the couple’s second child, as they also have three-year-old daughter, Sienna. Ciara also shares a six-year-old son with ex-fiance, rapper Future.
