Now, in a new interview with Cosmopolitan South Africa, the singer says it turns out waiting was actually worth it.
“I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship—and once you know you’re really great friends and you’re what we call ‘equally yoked,’ where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone. Knowing that you’ll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful ... You shouldn’t feel like you have to give your body away to get someone to like you,” she says.
The singer and her football star hubby, who began dating in April 2015, immediately discussed waiting until they married.
“I have to give credit to my husband for sharing those views,” Ciara told the mag. “It’s awesome how it all worked out.”
They are clearly getting it on now—in October they announced they were expecting a child together, who will join Future Zahir, Ciara’s son with her ex-fiancée, rapper Future.
