Ciara Wilson

Ciara Wilson recently sat down with W magazine for an in-depth chat about her life as a mommy, homemaker, and wife to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Ciara, who is fortunate enough to spend Mother's Day with her mother and grandmother, shared her best Mother's Day since becoming a mother herself.

"It was so sweet. My husband surprised me in Washington, D.C., where I was on tour," she explained. "It felt really good to be thought of and I felt like I accomplished something great and [finally] realized it. Sometimes when you're going through emotions, you don't even realize what happens. To really say, 'Wow, I'm a mom and I'm doing all right,' felt good. It was very special.

The 32-year-old mother-of-two performed a Michael Jackson-inspired set at the Seattle Symphony on Thursday. She posted a photo from her performance on Instagram.com.

Below are excerpts from her W interview. Click here to read the full interview.

Do you have your own Mother's Day routine nailed down at this point, or does it change every year?
I wake up and roll with the flow, and take in all the love everyone gives me. My husband has always been really thoughtful and I love celebrating my mom, my grandmother, my mother-in-law, and grandmother-in-law as well—all the women in my life.
 

How often do you have quality time with your husband, Russell Wilson?
We traditionally do date night every Friday. I have to say it's been pretty cool because it's the part of the week we look forward to and it gives balance since we're both always on the go. There's something about the energy that goes into preparing for that day.
 

Have you found a strong community of other moms that you can confide in?
Oh yeah. It's crazy because when I look around now, pretty much most of my friends have kids. So it's been really cool to go on that journey together and be able to share notes and things we do to take care of our little ones when something happens—if it's a diaper rash or whatever. It's funny when you get those old-school remedies too, from your grandmother. It's been cool to give my friends advice as well.
 

What kinds of tips do you give them?
The thing I've always shared is you don't want to measure one baby by another. Let your baby roll at their own pace. Also, it will all come to you. Someone told me that before, when I was like, "What is being a mom all about?" It's crazy because you've never done it before and it sounds like this foreign concept, but then your maternal instinct kicks in and you really do figure it all out. You create your own unique plan that works for yourself and your family and that's really beautiful.
 

You're friends with Kim Kardashian, and your kids have played together. Has she given you any parenting advice?
It's been years since our little ones have played together, but she's always been a really sweet girl. You can tell that she really loves her kids. I think there's something sweet about seeing your friends and their sincere love for their kids. You see them grow through that experience.

    "You’re friends with Kim Kardashian, and your kids have played together. Has she given you any parenting advice?
    It’s been years since our little ones have played together..."

    Years though? How old is North anyway??

  • Yardgirl

    Beautiful photo of Ciara and her mom and grandmother!!

    Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers on the board!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Oop. she basically said I dont fukk with Kim like that no more and then cleaned up around the edges. Damn nobody lets their kids play with Kim nem kids do they? *shrug*

    Happy Mother's Day to her and all the other moms.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ???

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Wait, I just looked it up and North is barely turning 5 next month. So it's been years since they've played together. Well damn...

  • Ebony Starr

    I caught that too!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond
  • Kanyade

    that 'po baby LOL

  • Miss Thang

    her mom reminds me of Chaka Khan

  • Yardgirl

    ???

  • Kayke

    Lmao! I laughed so hard I snorted. Gotta put the babies to sleep before you turn up!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I like Ciara.

  • GuestSTAR

    LMAO!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    I was dancing with her til I seen the end. Im crine

  • FukkFolks2018

    Looking forward to Father's Day so Ciara can post her fine ass daddy.

  • Tiff J

    Future is only what, 3 years old, and their kids haven't played together in YEARS? Hmmmm.... that's weird. Oh well, I'm sure Ciara's kids aren't hurting for friends, they have all of Papa Russy's teammates kids to play with. So no worries.

  • Bossy704

    Why do people wish every woman they see Happy Mother's Day? I can't stand it. We are not all mothers and what about a woman who can't have children? Way to open the wound.

  • FukkFolks2018

    As black women we are nurturing by nature. Being a bio mother is not just what makes you a mom. I was a mom of 3 by 16 but I wasnt a bio mother at that time. Nieces and nephews. Younger cousins. Stepchildren. Godchildren. Mentoring. Fur babies. There are plenty of ways to be "a mom".

    Im sorry if anyone is struggling in their fertility and not able to have their own biological children. And I apologize if this has offended anyone I personally know

  • Smith Jane

    So she’s not friends with Kim K anymore? Ciara is like the queen of passive aggressive shade lmao. She did something similar about Rihanna when asked about her on fashion police. She should work on answering questions about other celebrities that she’s no longer cool with lol

  • Smith Jane

    So the holiday should go unacknowledged because a small percentage of women aren’t mothers or can’t hsve kids? Wow. Way to be self-centered. Your personal issues are just that - personal. There are hundreds of millions of mothers across the world and they have every right to shout, scream, and dance in the streets on Mother’s Day. So you and the person who upvoted you need to gtfo it.

  • Smith Jane

    You shouldn’t apologize for anything.

  • Smith Jane

    Yeah I think the rumors were true about their falling out shortly after Future was born. Something about Khloé creeping with Future or trying to get on him (the baby daddy)

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Exactly. They probably don't even remember Kim's kids.

  • MissHarlem

    Perfect reply

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I was, too, and died when I saw the ending. I couldn't resist!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I remember those days!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I can't stop laughing though!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Them chicks love to sleep with their friends' men, geezus. That's just so nasty to me. Sleeping with someone my friend or family member has been with doesn't even appeal to me. No matter what has been said about them in bed, I don't wanna be with someone that has been with someone I know or am related to.

  • tia

    thank you so much

  • SweetTEE

    Well, I'm wishing myself and all the other women who don't have kids yet Happy Future Mother's Day!! I'm celebrating in preparation. Hopefully I get preggo on Mother's Day lol

  • Yardgirl

    I love me some you!! ???

  • Nicol B

    yeah right? seemed like she was holding that in for a while.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    It really was.

  • NeverSurprised

    Eloquent!!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    Beautiful women. Ciara appears to be living her best life. Good for her.

  • Tammie Reed

    She's lucky and I will leave it at that lol.

  • Tammie Reed

    She has always been sweet when I have been around her! She's gorgeous too!

  • Alextra Ballard

    How ironic...I went to a Dr. appointment this earlier today. As people were leaving the Drs. Office which included both men and wimmen,they were saying happy mothers day. Those who were mothers said thank you,and those who were not including myself,just smiled and said have a great weekend. No way was I offended. People were just being cordial. No harm no foul.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Did Ciara say diaper rash? Well um sure she's changes her baby on the regular. So it's ither the pampers or the wipes. Most likely it's the wipes.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I wish ppl would learn not to answer questions when Kim K name come up in them. Why her name even in the list of fawking questions

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Happy for her.

  • B.Loveitt

    She better let that family of hoes go. They're Incapable of getting their own men.

  • B.Loveitt

    Me too! Now I am Murtha Phuka of sorts but not a Mother. IJS

  • softness1

    She definitely made sure that it was known that they don't hang.. She was like "it's been years" lol...

  • softness1

    All the women are so beautiful. Ciara is so lucky to still have them. They're all radiating..

  • C Mack

    That last answer though! Kim and Ci have a weird friendship that’s always seemed fake to me

  • Lanegra??

    LMAO @ "nobody lets their kids play with kim nem kids do they?"

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Good luck!

  • GuestSTAR

    Lol

  • SweetTEE

    Thank you!

  • B.Loveitt

    DId she change her comment? Where did she say end the holiday, and mothers have no right to celebrate? So quick to be nasty for no reason at all. You and the 6 people who upvoted you, need to read it again and comprehend. GTFOHWTBS!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Happy Mother’s Day. Hope you’re day is filled with love and joy ! ????

  • Quitedeliteful

    That pic of three generations of mothers is beautiful...

  • Dove Amerie

    CC like ion go take my good manz around them hoez lol

  • KHJ2016

    It was reported that Kanye didn't want Kim dealing with Ciara when she got with Russell. I think the whole thing with Russell pushing the baby stroller and having the paps there on their 1st public outing, might have been the reason why. The way Ciara did things were messy.

  • KHJ2016

    Kim was Ciara's sponsor. Kim also sponsored Blac Chyna. Ciara and BC wanted more exposure, so they would hang with Kim and have the paps show up places to take pics. Kim also schooled Ciara on clothing and plastic surgery. Ciara looks nothing like she use to

  • Faithz

    Omg Lol

  • C Mack

    Stop lol. Ci dresses and looks better than Kim. The exposure thing may be true though

  • Yui

    Great photo. What a blessing she has both mommy and granny.

  • Logan Roberts

    That's a nice family pic & I like that hair color on Ciara too.

  • Miss Lady

    I'm sick of this ho-me maker.

  • Shira Harding-James

    That’s what I took from that too.
    Ciara Kelley Serena LaLa and Kim used to be super tight.

  • Allihave2say

    Russell told Ciara no Kardashians or no him. Period.

  • Allihave2say

    Remember when Khloe suggested to Russell Wilson that he doesn't have to deal with celibacy because she'll give the P for his D.
    Khloe has always pursued unavailable men.

  • Allihave2say

    This is perfect!!! Happy Mother's Day!

  • Malcom Flex

    Beautiful black queens.

  • Rayne

    If she does introduce Russell to them hoes I AM DONE WITH HER!

  • Rayne

    He better ??

  • Rayne

    When I say it I mean it as a potential to be a mother. Sort of like a prayer. It’s ok. ?

  • Rayne

    ??

  • Allihave2say

    Chile, yall remember when Khloe offered Russell her services?

  • Rayne

    Say what now??????

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    You broke those syllables up, Didn't you!!! Iiiiihaaaa

  • kekeb

    Whattttt when Khloe said dat?
    "Who said deeett" (in my Porsha voice)??. I'm finna have to Google that. I mean Khloe has a reputation, but that's just scandalous!!! I have to see it for myself

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    And probably everything else. Russell was too intelligent for Khloe kind

  • kekeb

    At this point, I am legit curious as to how there has not been an outbreak of epic proportions concerning them

  • Allihave2say

    https://youtu.be/qV0iYefDido This one is just audio.

    These hoes are always in people's bedrooms and between their legs. They are continuous whores. This one is her and Cassie who's never gonna get married talking about it.
    https://youtu.be/nDAQtkMmP7E

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    They are being Messy trying to make Kim significant, like she is Every black girl's friend. Why didn't they ask about Kelly or Ciara's other celebrity friends? Ciara was like dismiss me from Kim, iiiiihaaaa, Good for Ciara!!!

  • Allihave2say

    There has been plastic hips 1st Kim & now Beyonce; inflated lips, breasts and buts have been duplicated all over the world.

  • Allihave2say

    Google Khloe Russell Wilson Celibacy
    Hit me up after you see the videos.
    Cassie is in one of the discussion saying that Ciara needs to give up the panties.

  • kekeb

    I did. I heard the discussion about celibacy and the "what are they trying to prove" talk. But I can't find where she offered her "services" to him.
    And Cassie needs to shut the entire hell up cause Puff Daddy done milked that cow clean dry. I'm pretty sure she couldn't be celibate if she wanted to as long as she on his leash.
    And everybody knows Khloe can't keep her knees together. I just wanted to hear where she actually offered the man some of that NBA hitlist snatch

  • kekeb

    Right!!!! I believe they pretty much own the media (along with TMZ and other Time Warner affiliates). Didn't nobody summons Kim Kardashian. And who has even seen them in pictures together lately? SMH just pathetic journalism to mention her

  • the guest

    Russell is a good husband. He doesn’t play with protecting their family boundaries. Ciara is not allowed to be friends with Kim and that is a good thing.

    I’m sure Kim relished in being the “married with family” friend when Future was hurting Ciara with a misleading engagement. Because Kim is braggadocious like that.

    Ciara is like, I’m married with family and I don’t hang with the Kardashian soap opera. I’m so glad Ciara got her day.

  • MissyJ

    Wait what? I need more info

  • DeepThinker

    Ciara choose a nice way to say I don't fluck with her no more. Kids have not played together in years. The babies aren't even 5 yet! ha!
    Well after that Future and Pippen's wife drama and then Khloe's statement about their celibacy, Ciara distanced herself. I do not even recall Kim being at her wedding. One thing about the Kardashians they stick together even when they are wrong. They don't let friends come between their sisterhood. Khloe was definitely using Ciara to bring the buzz to her tired talk show. People that respect you don't do that. No wonder Beyoncé keeps her distance.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    LOL they sure do. I may as well get ready for the all the happy father's day well wishes. "Thank you." God forbid I say I don't have kids. Folks then give me that unsolicited children of the corn look. TF? I sleep well at night.

  • Rayne

    Khloe is s big nosed bitch.

  • Rayne

    Oh wow!

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Love you enjoy your day?

  • Allihave2say

    I posted the videos on Sandra's article page.

  • EMILY POST

    Wow White media magazines are awful..... shes a star in her own right and W magazine decided to end with a Kardashian question... LOL Black women in Entertainment .... are always dismissed.

  • Legacy

    Awe seeing her mom and grandma’s noses helps me remember what Ciara’s original nose looked like.

  • missmiami305

    She’s so fake

  • the guest

    Khloe Kardashian is an idiot.

  • Trace da Ace
