Ciara: ‘I Consider Myself a Superwoman’

Ciara Pregnant W Magazine WMag.comCarlos Serrao exclusively for

Ciara is almost due to give birth to her first child (a boy!), but that hasn’t stopped the mom-to-be from maintaining her style.

In fact, the Grammy-winning singer recently posed for a high-fashion photo shoot for while eight months pregnant.

Wearing everything from Commes des Garcon and Eres to Donna Karan, the expectant pop star was completely relaxed. She even joked that rapper fiancé Future has taken to calling her bump the “growing basketball.”

“It feels good to not have to wonder whether your abs are tight enough,” she also shared in the exclusive interview. “I like not being so perfect.”

Despite being a very private person, Ciara is publicly basking in pending motherhood. And she’s happily documenting every step of the way.

“My mom and I don’t have a lot of photos of my early years,” she explained. “[And] this is one of those moments you can’t repeat.”

The mom-to-be is also preparing for her bundle of joy with the help of a few famous friends, including good pal Kim Kardashian.

So what’s the best advice she’s received so far? “Allowing your child to be who they want to be — as long as they want to be something great,” she said. “You don’t know your child until they get here, you don’t know their personality. There is a lot of learning to do.”

Also on Ciara’s mind is her upcoming album, which she claims is her best yet. She also plans to “hit the gym” as soon as her body allows.

“I don’t want to sound too cocky. But I consider myself a superwoman.”

Ok Ciara. I like you, but you have no idea what you are talking about.

Well, nice headline that’s not explained at all in the article.

She thinks she is “not being so perfect” when her baby is growing inside her? Fool!

Summer on

Yeah just wait until the baby gets here and she’s up every 2 hours feeling like a zombie, combined with the emotional rollercoaster by readjusting hormones. Let’s see who’s “superwoman” then! I love first time mothers pre-birth! (I was the same way until reality smacked me upside the head.)

If being ignorant, arrogant, and uneducated makes her superwoman, then yeah, I guess she is. What a load.

She’s really a superwoman. Not the billions of women who came before her and combined having kids with working. Especially not those that had babies, milked cows, raised their 12 other children, helped with the farm, made food and clothing from scratch, and did this all without electricity or indoor plumbing.

This whole article is off putting. I hate when women declare themselves a queen or in her case superwoman. No, you are none of the above. You are mere mortal who is pregnant. That in itself should be special enough without having to over inflate your ego by calling yourself super human. Hopefully this child will keep her busy so she can stop trying to sing…cus lord have mercy she can’t sing!

Really? She has no idea what she’s in store for. Calling herself superwoman already? errr. pump your brakes. You have no idea.

I have no idea who Ciara might be; however, she’s doing the easy part now. Having children is easy, raising them correctly will kill you. I’ll consider her a superwoman when she appears in public with vomit on her shoulders, when she’s struggling to pay bills, and when she’s like one of the walking dead because she’s been up all night with a fussy baby.

Ellsworth if you think she is superwoman, then your screws are loose and rusty
