Renowned R&B artist Ciara recently provided candid insights into her past relationship with rapper Future, with whom she shares a child, shedding light on the pivotal moment when she knew their relationship had come to an end.
In an interview with Call Her Daddy published on Thursday (October 5), Ciara delved into her state of mind as she recognized that her connection with the “Turn On the Lights” rapper needed to be severed.
She began by likening the realization to a change in one’s taste preferences, stating, “It’s almost like your tastebuds change.” Ciara emphasized the importance of introspection and self-reflection during such moments, questioning what changes she could make in her life. She expressed her desire for joy and ensuring that her own well-being was a priority. She noted, “When you’re tired, you’re tired, and don’t nobody want to be tired all the time. Those are things that come to my mind when I process, when I was making a pivotal moment in my life.”
The discussion extended to Ciara’s perspective on having a child with the trap music luminary, with whom she was romantically involved from 2012 to 2014. She underlined the gravity of parenthood, emphasizing the responsibility that comes with it. “When you have a child, it’s very important to me, it’s no time to play around,” the 37-year-old artist asserted. She pondered her decisions and thought processes in light of her parental role.
Shortly after parting ways with Future, Ciara met and married NFL quarterback Russell Wilson. The couple, now in their seventh year together, is eagerly anticipating the arrival of their third child.
Ciara shared her experience of meeting the Denver Broncos athlete in 2015, describing their connection as an unprecedented and profound one. She praised Wilson for his exceptional parenting, expressing that witnessing him engage with their children was heartwarming and highly attractive.
In contrast, Ciara’s co-parenting experience with Future has been notably distinct, and she has conveyed her sentiments without the need for explicit language. During a September interview with The Shade Room, Future was asked about their co-parenting dynamics, sparking conversations about the unique challenges and experiences the former couple has faced.
Ciara’s openness in discussing her past relationship and her thriving partnership with Russell Wilson serves as a testament to her personal growth and her unwavering commitment to parenthood. Her story resonates with many, emphasizing the importance of self-reflection and prioritizing personal happiness and the well-being of her family.
