Being a single mother wasn’t the plan for Ciara, but the singer didn’t let that get her down. “That wasn’t necessarily part of my vision,” CiCi stated in a new interview with Essence magazine. “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.”
And that’s exactly what Ciara did. Just a year after ending things with the father of her child, rapper Future, Ci found the love of her life in NFL player, 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.”
Looks like dreams do come true! Check out the behind-the-scenes of Ciara’s Essence magazine shoot and take a look at both of her flawless covers below.
