Ciara gushes about her marriage to Russell Wilson in a new interview with InStyle.
The 33-year-old, who tied the knot with Wilson, 30, in 2016, says she just knew she’d found the one when the pair went on their first date back in March 2015.
Ciara, who is mother to son Future, 4, and Sienna, 2, tells the magazine: “We both had that light-bulb moment.”
The duo didn’t have sex before marriage due to religious reasons, with Ciara admitting: “That took a lot of prayer. It was hard. I can’t lie.”
Ciara’s candid chat also sees her talk about her relationship with rapper Future, the father of her son, and how she realized she “didn’t want to keep going around in circles” after the romance ended in 2014.
The singer, who has now launched Beauty Marks Entertainment (BME), shares, “If you want to get somewhere in life, you’ve got to have a compass. You’ve got to know where you really want to get to. And my heart, soul, spirit, and mind just desired to be loved. To be truly loved the right way.
“I knew I didn’t want to cry tears of hurt anymore. I didn’t want to keep going around in circles.”
She adds of her latest business venture, “There are so many learning curves that I’m going through with having my own company, but it’s so fun. I feel like I’m growing and I feel free.”
