Ciara has definitely had a storied romantic life. She famously dated Bow Wow and 50 Cent and then seemed to find her match when she got engaged to Future. However, things between them fell apart after Ciara gave birth to their son, baby Future. But after so many bad breakups, Ciara’s dream romance finally came when she began dating NFL superstar Russell Wilson, who recently proposed to her after a year of dating. Now, Ciara is opening up about the men in her life and explaining how she prepared herself for the love that Wilson brought into her life.
According to media reports, Ciara is the new cover girl for the May issue of Essence and in the magazine she opened up about how she was ready for a family of her own when she and Future planned to have their baby together.
“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.”
However, her family plans fell apart when she and Future split up and spent the next several months beefing with each other over their son and Ciara’s dating life.
“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.” Ciara said.
And Ciara’s plan worked because she ended up dating Wilson and the couple became one of the most talked about pairs in the industry because of their vow to remain abstinent until they’re married. Ciara explain that she and Wilson have a bond that’s built on a strong foundation of love for God and each other and that she’s finally ready for the man of her dreams.
“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,” she said.
