Since first learning of Ciara’s pregnancy, we’ve been pretty heavily following her growing baby bump, but she hasn’t been overly vocal about her pregnancy. Aside from our exclusive chat with her, we haven’t actually heard a lot from her perspective on the topic. But thanks to her new profile in W, Ciara’s–who, by the way, is one of this year’s rising fashion It-Girls–POV on her pregnancy is loud and clear.
It seems she’s really enjoying not having the pressure of having her enviable and inspirational abs on display and under scrutiny all the time. “It feels good to not have to wonder whether your abs are tight enough. I like not being so perfect,” she told the magazine, clearly loving the new-found freedom pregnancy permits.
That freedom is allowing her a lot of time to get ready for her son with fiance Future. She told W she’s been getting advice from her BFF Kim Kardashian on “everything from breastfeeding to how a stroller works,” and making sure to document her pregnancy with lots of pictures because she and her mother don’t have a lot of pictures from her youth.
We can’t wait for shots of the little boy when he arrives, which is sure to be any day now because her belly is looking BIG. After the birth Ciara plans on getting back in shape and planning her wedding. If that sounds like a lot to handle for a new mother, no big. “I don’t want to sound too cocky, but I consider myself superwoman,” she says.
