Ciara is one busy mama!
“Extra’s” Terri Seymour caught up with the singer, who dished on life with her two kids, Future, 5, and Sienna, 2, and husband Russell Wilson.
Ciara opened up about a big milestone for Future, who is starting kindergarten.
“Future’s first year of kindergarten happens this year and I’m so excited,” she said, adding, “It goes so fast. It’s honestly somewhat surreal, but it’s a really a big milestone for us. His sister has also been doing pre-K and a toddler program at school. It’s been fun not only taking him to school, but her as well. It’s really sweet, and I go, ‘Oh, my gosh. They’re really growing up.’”
“Putting them in school for me has been something I have always looked forward to… I like them to get out and do stuff; I am that kind of mom. I’m like, ‘What are we doing today, how can we maximize today?’ There are days for fun.”
When she isn’t being super mom, she is busy building her business.
Ciara recently released a new album, telling Terri, “‘Beauty Marks’ is the name of my seventh album that I just put out — my first album under my label imprint under my Beauty Marks Entertainment umbrella. It’s been incredible running my own label.”
She said her kids love her single “Level Up,” and the whole “Beauty Marks” album.
“They tell me what’s going to be hot and what’s not… just by how they react!” she said. The record is killing it on the charts, and the 33-year-old added, “To know that ‘Level Up’ is a platinum record... I feel more motivated than ever right now.”
Russell and Ciara are getting into the sports world as well, joining rapper Macklemore in part ownership of the Seattle Sounders FC of Major League Soccer. “It’s really fun to do all these fun things with my husband,” Ciara said. “He inspires me in such a great way.” The family celebrated by posting a video of the kids playing soccer: “It was really sweet to see the kids’ joy,” she added.
She helped give other kids joy by hosting Amazon’s back-to-school block party, and shared her biggest advice for young girls: “I think the biggest thing for girls is that you can do whatever you put your mind to. Your gender will never stop you from where you’re going in life. If you believe in what you want to do, it’s possible.”
