Pregnancy suits Ciara well. The glowing mom-to-be, who is due to give birth to a boy any day now, shows off her pregnant belly in a gorgeous new photo shoot for W magazine. In the black-and-white photos, shot by Carlos Serrao, Ciara holds her baby bump while rocking designer fashions and lying on the sand.
This will be the first child for the 28-year-old singer, who met her fiancé Future while working on her album. “We created ‘Body Party,’ and that song created something else—and that’s why we’re here,” she joked. She has been enjoying her pregnancy and not having to worry about keeping her toned body in shape. “It feels good to not have to wonder whether your abs are tight enough,” said CiCi. “I like not being so perfect.”
Her friend Kim Kardashian has given her some parenting tips. “You don’t know your child until they get here, you don’t know their personality,” said Ciara. “There is a lot of learning to do. I loved that advice.”
After giving birth, she plans to get right back to work. Her upcoming album, due “really soon,” is her best yet. “I will go on record saying so,” she said. “As soon as the body says hit the gym, I’m gonna hit the gym. I’ve been having a lot of food fun.” She will also start planning her wedding. “I don’t want to sound too cocky,” said Ciara. “But I consider myself superwoman.”
