OH. HEY. CICI!
Pregnant with her second child, and first with husband Russell Wilson, Ciara has posed nude for a gorgeous maternity spread for Harper’s Bazaar.
In the Dani Brubaker photo shoot, the 31-year-old singer/model lays nude in a see-through On Aura Tout Vu trench, showing off her beautiful nearly seven months pregnant figure. In more playful family shots she smiles for a closeup while holding her son Future Zahir, and carries him on her back.
Speaking about the joy of motherhood Ciara says, “I’m just super excited about this time in my life. Like, oh my gosh, I can see my son running around, and soon it’s going to be two of these creatures running around! Our hands will be full of non-stop action.”
Cici is also working on her seventh studio album and first for Warner Bros. Records. “I got this baby and my album,” she says. As for what fans can expect from the project? “I want to make the world dance,” she explains.
This echoes a statement she made after announcing the deal in January. “Proud to announce and honored to join the family!” she said. “To all my Ladies out there…this is truly a time where we can do anything, be anything we want, & Love to the fullest while being loved in return.. there is No Limit! Dreams really do come true! I’m supercharged to make the World Dance again!”

ON SUPPORT: “If someone’s not supporting you and your vision and your dreams—whether it’s your relationship partner, your friend, whomever, then you’ve got to make sure to keep it moving. If people aren’t lifting you up, even if you’re the strongest person in the world, eventually it does chip away at you. You don’t even realize that you’re losing yourself. And that’s the scariest place to be in life… I don’t want to lose myself. I love myself too much. I love life too much.”
ON FREQUENT CHILDHOOD MOVES: “It was a bit of a challenge. You would build friendships, then you’d have to say goodbye…I do think part of that made me kind of tough. Emotionally tough. The truth of it is, it helped me with being able to accept cutting things off… Which I think is a good thing, maybe it could be a bad thing, because it can make you cold in that way.”
ON HER SON FUTURE BECOMING A BIG BROTHER: “He’ll randomly pull my shirt up and be like, ‘I want to see the baby. Hello, baby. How you doing, baby? I love you, baby. Okay, talk to you later, baby. Bye, bye.’ Then he’ll kiss me on my belly and put my shirt back down.”
