After Ciara announced on The View yesterday that she was pregnant, she also went to speak with Marc Lamont Hill over at Huffington Post Live. During their interview, which was to promote her performance at Degree’s Grammy after-party, the mommy-to-be talked about her baby, her man, her music, and making nice with the mothers of Future’s other kids. It was actually a very interesting interview. Here’s the tea:
“Body Party” Grammy Snub
Unfortunately, there was a good amount of sample in the song that prevented it from getting a Grammy. I think that’s how the technical breakdown of it is. It really was cool either way because it did go number one. And it was just such a great year. Just being able to get started and have a fresh start with Epic and L.A. Reid. It’s all special. It still was really great and I’ll be doing some cool stuff with the Grammy’s anyway.
Preparing For Her Little One
It really is a blessing. It’s the most exciting time in my life, just everything that’s been happening…I’m really excited, I’m like a little kid. You know when the kids are getting ready for Christmas and you’re like, ‘I can’t wait to see what’s under that tree?’ That’s how I am.
Does She Have A Preference For A Boy Or A Girl?
I can’t say. I do have a preference but I don’t want to say that either. I did have a preference before I found out what it was. I had a preference at first and it was different than what I thought, but my fiancé got what he wanted [laughs]. I’m excited.
Falling In Love With Future
It’s really a sweet time. I’m really, really happy. I didn’t see any of the things happening that are happening right now. But that’s the best thing. I think with life and love, it’s better when you don’t plan. And it’s better when you take one day at a time, and I know the place I was in before all of this and God answered my prayers. I wasn’t in a bad place, but I was in a place of reflection and regrouping as a woman and I had my experiences with love…The cool thing was it was really unexpected and I kind of planted the seed. You know, the tongue is very powerful, the mind is very powerful and what you put into the universe, you know you gotta be careful about that. What I put in the universe, I did say what I wanted. Love to me is so important. It’s not about the money, it’s not about the material things, it’s ultimately about love and I feel like if you are enriched with love, you will be rich.
Bonding With Future’s Family And Mothers Of His Kids
This is my family. They are amazing women. I like to say they are. I wanted to capture the moment of all of us being together, and shed the positive light on what everything is with my family. It’s kind of a blended family concept and I wanted to shed the light on that because it’s so beautiful. It’s all about love and it’s all about positivity and that’s what I’m about. His family is my family. Anyone that comes with him, it has to be love and that’s the same way that he is for me. So that’s how I live. You know you can’t over think things. People can have their own way of how they look at things, and how they want to judge and speak on something, but you know what something is and that’s what matters.
