Listen to Ciara on iHeartRadio

Ciara is almost ready to give birth to her first child with fiance, Future, and the mom-to-be is showing off her baby bump in the latest issue of W Magazine. 

Inside, the singer opens up about motherhood and explains why she doesn't mind having a very public pregnancy.

“My mom and I don’t have a lot of photos of my early years. So I decided we should document everything,” she said. “This is one of those moments you can’t repeat.”

The sexy singer also dished details about the bond she shares with her baby’s daddy, Future.

“Music is a place where we have a very strong connection. We created ‘Body Party’, and that song created something else—and that’s why we’re here,” she said.

Despite their mutual love of music, she’s not certain she wants her child to follow in their famous footsteps.

“It’s a really hard world. If that’s what their heart yearns for, then I’m down,” she said. “I believe in allowing your child to be who they want to be—as long as they want to be something great.”

And as for that rocking’ bod? Ciara says she’s anxious to get her washboard abs back.

“I will go on record saying so. As soon as the body says hit the gym, I’m gonna hit the gym,” she said. “I've been having a lot of food fun.”
