Following the big reveal on ABC’s, The view, Tuesday morning, Ciara stopped by The Huffington Post for a sit down interview with Marc Lamont. During their talk the singer discusses finally finding love with Future, bonding with the mothers of Future’s three children, whether she knows the sex of her unborn child and her upcoming Grammy after party performance.
Here are some of the highlights of their interview.
On finding love
I didn’t see any of the things happening that are happening right now. I think with life and love, it’s better when you don’t plan. It’s better when you take one day at a time, and I know the place I was in before all of this and God answered my prayers. I was in a place of reflecting and regrouping as a woman and I had my experiences with love. […] The cool thing was it was really unexpected and I kind of planted the seed. You know, the tongue is very powerful and the mind is very powerful and what you put into the universe, you have to be careful about that. Love to me is so important. It’s not about the money, it’s not about the material things, it’s ultimately about love and I feel like if you are enriched with love, you are rich.
It takes me back to the beginning, when I first started, I put out in the universe, ‘I see myself having the number one song on the Billboard chart’ and I had wrote down a goal sheet of everything, and everything that I wanted to happen, happened.
On her pregnancy
It really is a blessing. It’s the most exciting time in my life. I’m really excited, like a little kid. You know when the kids are getting ready for Christmas and you can’t wait to see what’s under the tree?
On if she’s having a boy or girl
I did have a preference before I found out what it was. I had a preference at first and it was different than what I thought, but my fiance got what he wanted. [The teasing between the two suggests it may be a boy].
On bonding with Future’s other baby mamas
This is my family. They are amazing women. I like to say they are. I wanted to capture the moment of all of us being together, and shed the light on what it is with my family. It’s kind of a blended family concept and I wanted to shed the light on that because it’s so beautiful.
It’s all about love and it’s all about positivity and that’s what I’m about. His family is my family. Anyone that comes with him, it has to be love and that’s the same for me. So that’s how I live.
You know you can’t over think things. When things are right and people can have their own way of how they look at things, and how they want to judge and speak on something but you know what something is and that’s what matters.
On if she plans to take a break from the industry after she gives birth:
No, I’ve been recording my album and I actually started around Thanksgiving of last year. I’m in the most comfortable creative space I could possibly be in. I will actually be giving my fans something really soon and I’m really excited about it because it’s so beautiful.
The performance at the Grammy after party, if you go online, you’ll see the videos that I did with them. I was actually four months at that time period, almost five months. I was jumping up and down.
