Ciara: I’m ‘blessed’ to have my family
Ciara says she is "blessed" to have her family.
The 31-year-old singer is currently expecting her first child with her professional American football star husband Russell Wilson, and has dubbed him as an "awesome support system" to help her get through her pregnancy.
She said: "I’m very blessed with having the best support system that I could ever ask for or every dream of.
"My husband is pretty awesome… You see Russell playing on the field; he’s that same person at home. I think even cooler! He’s an awesome support system to me and best friend so that makes a world of difference."
Since announcing her pregnancy in October, the ‘I Bet’ hitmaker – who already shares two-year-old son Future Zahir with her ex-partner Future – hasn’t taken any time off, and says her busy schedule makes her feel "like Superwoman."
She added during a Facebook Live on Monday (30.01.17): "It is definitely eventful while traveling and doing interviews while being pregnant. But honestly, I feel the most empowered by being able to do this. I feel like Superwoman, honestly!"
Meanwhile, it isn’t just the ‘Goodies’ singer and her 28-year-old beau who are looking forward to the new addition to their family as little Future "can’t wait" to be a big brother.
Ciara said previously: "He rubs my belly and he says, ‘Hi baby. I love you, baby,’ … and then he puts my shirt down and says, ‘Bye, bye baby.’ So, that’s his own thing.
"He sees a baby walking, smaller than him and walking — it doesn’t matter, it’s a baby. So, he goes, ‘baby’ and he looks at me and he goes, ‘Mama, baby’ – and he tries to pull my sweatshirt up."
