Ciara is ready to shed some baby weight! The 34 year old singer is letting fans in on her postpartum fitness plan. The level up singer revealed that she hopes to lose 48 lbs. after giving birth to her third child, son, Win Harrison, just last month.
“Don’t know how easy it’s going to be considering 3 baby’s now!”
Taking to Instagram on Monday, Aug. 24, Ciara posted a snap of herself on Monday, for her 26 million followers, declaring that she had 48 lbs left to lose and is about to embark on a new fitness ‘game plan.’
“48lbs to go! Starting the game plan tomorrow!!” Ciara captioned the post. “P.s. Don’t know how easy it’s going to be considering 3 baby’s now! Going to work really hard at this! Let’s go Mamma’s 💃🏽💪🏽”
Welcoming their second child together
Ciara and Russell Wilson welcomed their second child together on July 23 and announced the special news in an Instagram post. While many would argue Ciara is already in shape, her weight loss journey comes exactly one month after she gave birth to a baby boy, Win. Whose name is a nod to the NFL star’s late father, Harrison Wilson.
The 34 year old singer posted a clip of her holding baby Win in her hospital bed shortly after his arrival. The actress looked emotionally overwhelmed as she sang “Happy Birthday” to her “sunshine” from under a mask.
“Happy Birthday WIN!!! Mommy & Daddy Love You! Win Harrison Wilson 7.23.2020 8lbs 1 oz.❤️ 👶🏽,”wrote the singer alongside the sweet clip. Wilson also shared a hospital selfie with his wife to commemorate the special day. In the photo, Wilson smiles alongside Ciara as baby Win is wrapped up on his mother’s chest.
As fans of the couple know, they are already proud parents to their 3-year-old daughter Sienna Princess. The singer also welcomed her first child Future Zahir, 6, with her ex, Future.
“A baby has so many milestones and there’s so much to look forward to. It’s a house full of love”
The “1, 2 Step” singer opened up in an interview, the week after Win was born, about the challenge of jumping from two kids to three. Saying that there is “definitely going to be a lot of learning to do because every day is a new day in this era. But I think as a parent, once you have two, any more after that it’s like you’re ready,” she added. “A baby has so many milestones and there’s so much to look forward to. It’s a house full of love,” she said.
“Truly a Memorable Experience”
While Ciara has described her pregnancy with Win as her “slowest pregnancy of all,” the singer certainly didn’t slow down herself leading up to the delivery. Even when heavily pregnant, Ciara was keeping up a very active lifestyle. She put on a fiery performance in the video to her latest song “Rooted,” which featured her dancing energetically with her bump on full display.
“It’s all #Rooted in me! 10 mos Preggo, In Studio, & Labor,” she shared on Instagram. “From being in the 10th month of my pregnancy, in the studio, & literally in labor working on this song. It was truly a memorable experience creating the Rooted song & video.”
The new mother of three recently spoke about working on her newest song, while in labor with Win.
“I was so proud of the process because I shot the video two weeks away from delivery for one part, and then I shot the other part just two days out,” she said in a behind-the-scenes look at the music video’s making. “I probably could only do each take for like two minutes and then I needed to take a break,” she explained in the video. “It also felt good working on it while knowing I was about to give birth to my newest angel, I was still grinding, and making it all happen at the same time.”
“Even down to literally being in labor having to give approvals for the song to make the deadlines. It was just an incredible experience that I will forever cherish.”
“To all my Black queens and kings, continue to plant and spread seeds of love, hope and pride in your tribe”
At the end of her music video, she left her fans with a powerful message and an anthem for the black community.
“To all my young Rosa’s and young Luther’s, keep marching. Don’t stop fighting for what you believe in,” a statement read. “To all my Black queens and kings, continue to plant and spread seeds of love, hope and pride in your tribe. Everything you need to survive and thrive is rooted in you. Stay rooted.”
