Ciara’s son Future Jr. is at the stage where he’s repeating everything he hears – including some words meant more for older kids.
“I learned that in a funny way the other day. He was like, ‘shoot’ and ‘dang,’ and I was like, ‘What is that?’” the singer told Us Weekly at the Veuve Clicquot Carnaval on Saturday, Feb. 20, in Miami. But Ciara isn’t too concerned – yet. “As long as he’s not saying any of the other words that come behind a ‘D’ and an ’S’!” she joked.
As for Future Jr.’s overall development, “He knows all his colors. He knows how to count from 1 to 10 in Spanish,” said Ciara of her son with ex-fiance, rapper Future. “He loves books, which is so much fun. I love reading books with him. It’s one of the sweetest times of my day.”
Though the 30-year-old songstress and her boyfriend, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, are choosing to practice abstinence until marriage, she will not urge Future Jr. to make the same decision when he comes of age.
“I just want for my son to be with the right person when the time comes,” she explained. “I know I can’t call the exact path or direction he’s going to walk in life, but I am hoping he walks in the right direction and I’m hoping more than anything that he’ll be a gentleman.”
