And with a belly as big as hers, Ciara knows that maternity style can be a struggle, telling the glossy:
“Pregnancy has been a great fashion challenge because you can’t wear things that you used to wear but you still want to feel like who you are,” Ciara says. “I have to pay some credit to my fiancé’s closet, because I have worn probably all of his clothes.”
But it can’t be too hard for CiCi, as she still manages to pull off pieces like a crop top and a Donna Karan gown with a thigh-high slit while being eight months pregnant. See the shots from her maternity spread and read what she had to say about motherhood after the jump.
On her pregnancy body:
“It feels good to not have to wonder whether your abs are tight enough,” she says. “I like not being so perfect.”
“Music is a place where we have a very strong connection,” says Ciara, who met her man while guesting on his album. “We created ‘Body Party,’ and that song created something else—and that’s why we’re here,” she joked, touching her stomach.
On raising her child:
“It’s a really hard world,” she says. But, she’s quick to add, “If that’s what their heart yearns for, then I’m down. I believe in allowing your child to be who they want to be—as long as they want to be something great.”
