Singer Ciara recently gave birth to son Win in the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic.
The mother of three took part in The Motherhood Juggle virtual chat with Tamron Hall on Monday, created by Motherhood Maternity and the USO, where she detailed the struggles of navigating the journey considering all of the restrictions implemented to tackle the outbreak.
“I think my biggest mission or focal point was to try my best to always find the silver lining through it all, and to find the positive moments,” Ciara shared with Hall. “I think you have to take a step back and think about, the reality is it’s a blessing and a gift to be able to give birth, so if you think about that, that kind of supersedes everything.”
Ciara shares Future Jr., 6, with ex-fiancé Future and Sienna, 3, and Win, 2 months with husband, Russell Simmons.
In true Cici fashion, the “Level Up” singer remained upbeat about the challenges she faced along the way.
“When we were learning about COVID, I was always looking for articles that would talk about infants when they’re born, and there wasn’t a lot of articles about that, so for me, I was like, I’m going to be one of those moms that are in the experimental phase of it all, too, to see what happens,” she said. “So it’s definitely been a memorable one, an unforgettable experience.”
Ciara says the key to the success of her partnership with her hunky, NFL hubby, has been “teamwork.”
“We have to remember that teamwork is part of it and communicate with your partner,” Ciara explained. “When you have tough moments, communicate. Russ and I, we talk about everything. We always say communication rules the nation, so we have an open line.”
