Ciara is a megastar- the singer, dancer and fashion model/icon is the face of Essence’s Secret Garden issue. Gracing the publication for the first time with a split- cover displaying her newly engaged glow!
The Grammy winning “I Bet” vocalist dishes on her love life with Russell Wilson revealing “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.” And she got it!
“Marriage is something I look forward to. I believe in family, and the beauty of two people committing to spend their lives together. We talk about everything. To me, to both of us, that’s the foundation you need for love to flourish and reach its highest place. I want to live with as much lightness as possible, so I can stay focused on my love of God, and being the best mom, and the best person, I can be…”—Ciara, ESSENCE Magazine
CC also dishes on her very public breakup with ex fiance, rapper Future “That wasn’t necessarily part of my vision,” she recalls. “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 she did just that! The super dancer is 30 years old with a fruitful career, a handsome little boy and the man of her dreams.
