ESSENCE’s May issue features a newly engaged Ciara in a blush pink strapless number against a gorgeous floral backdrop. Inside, she talks single motherhood and her views on marriage now that she has new love in her life.
“The moment I realized I was going to be a single mother, I had to reflect and reorganize my thoughts. I decided to trust that God had a plan for me, and move forward one day at a time,” she tells the mag.
“Marriage is something I look forward to. I believe in family, and the beauty of two people committing to spend their lives together. We talk about everything. To me, to both of us, that’s the foundation you need for love to flourish and reach its highest place. I want to live with as much lightness as possible, so I can stay focused on my love of God, and being the best mom, and the best person, I can be…” she adds.
The issue hits newsstands Friday!
