Since Ciara and Russell Wilson revealed that they are in a celibate relationship, they’ve received mostly negative comments about it. Remaining celibate till marriage may not work for everyone, but it’s clearly working for these two newly engaged lovebirds.
I get it. Ciara was dating Future, then got pregnant and engaged and it didn’t end up working out (Future rumored to have cheated on her repeatedly). She went a different direction in her relationship with Russell and she seems happier than ever.
Ciara covers the new issue of Essence magazine looking absolutely flawless. In the issue she opens up about becoming a mother, her past relationships and finally finding true love. Take notes, ladies!
“I’d always wanted to have my own family,” she said. “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 her breakup with Future:
“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 finding love with Russell:
“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.”
