Ciara Bares Her Baby Bump

Expectant mama Ciara bares her baby bump in a series of snapshots for HarpersBazaar.com and opens up about expecting her second child.

On joking that she has two babies on the way: “I got this baby and my album.”

On her 2-year-old son Future Zahir (from a previous relationship with rapper Future) becoming a big brother: “He’ll randomly pull my shirt up and be like, ‘I want to see the baby. ‘Hello, baby. How you doing, baby? I love you, baby. Okay, talk to you later, baby. Bye, bye.’ Then he’ll kiss me on my belly and put my shirt back down.”

On what her son has taught her: “Once you’re able to really be truly truthful with yourself, it’s life changing. You have way more compassion than you imagine, you’re sensitive to the right things.”

On her husband Russell Wilson: “If someone’s not supporting you and your vision and your dreams — whether it’s your relationship partner, your friend, whomever — then you’ve got to make sure to keep it moving. If people aren’t lifting you up, even if you’re the strongest person in the world, eventually it does chip away at you. You don’t even realize that you’re losing yourself. And that’s the scariest place to be in life. I don’t want to lose myself. I love myself too much. I love life too much.”

On expecting her second child: “I’m just super excited about this time in my life. Like, Oh my gosh, I can see my son running around, and soon it’s going to be two of these creatures running around! Our hands will be full of non-stop action.”
