At the start of this week, we told you about Future’s romantic proposal to girlfriend, Ciara, which occurred at her 28th birthday bash in New York City. The newly engaged couple recently sat down with MTV News to discuss how it all went down.
“I felt different [being engaged], but it’s great. It’s a great situation and I’m happy about it. I’m excited about it. I know she’s super happy. I feel good to be able to make someone happy,” Future expressed.
He went on to reveal that he has been planning to propose to CiCi for awhile now, and that he was just waiting for the right moment.
“Yeah, she was definitely surprised. I’ve been planning it for a minute too. I well thought about the ring. I was just taking my time with it. I wanted it to be special for her.”
Ciara also dished on the relationship, revealing why she decided to take a chance and go public with this relationship after having negative past experiences.
“You know what it is, I’ve had my experience over the years and I’ve been able to learn a lot. When you do step outside, you put yourself in a position where people are gonna be able to judge and they can criticize and they can give their opinions. That’s something I used to always fear,” CiCi said.
Thankfully, the “Body Party” singer says that she has found a way to overcome those fears.
“I’m kind of in a place where I’m facing my fears. I’m running towards my fears. I’m running towards the things that make me uncomfortable because I feel like, if I live my life based off of those things, I won’t live my life the way that I’m supposed to and I won’t live it to the fullest. I feel like you really have to live your life for you.”
The bride-to-be adds that Future has made her comfortable enough to take that leap of faith.
“That’s where I am at this day and time in my life. And I’m with someone who makes me extremely comfortable to feel that way, which is really important. And the way he makes me feel is like, ‘Why Not?’ If you love somebody, you should express it. And now I understand that. Before I’m thinking I’m trying to protect it, but realizing that I’m really only making it more complicated or I’m really only harming the situation. There’s nothing s*xy about hiding your love. There’s nothing s*xy about people not acknowledging each other. There’s a lot of stuff that I’ve learned and it feels so good to be free in that.”
How sweet! It’s hard to not be happy for them.
