Ciara couldn’t resist tearing up while discussing her feelings for her husband-to-be, Future, who proposed during her birthday party last October.
During a behind-the-scene interview during the photo shoot for her cover story in Brides magazine, the singer revealed that she wasn’t looking for love when she first met the rapper.
“With love, I was kinda like, ‘You know what? I’m gonna really close that door off and if something hits me than it just has to hit me,'” she says in the clip, which was posted exclusively on E News!
Following her first conversation with the rapper, Ci Ci notes that “he was so sweet and he was so gentle.” As she begins to cry, the singer adds, “He was just really, really a sweetheart. So either way…I don’t know why I’m getting emotional right now.”
She also shared that she did a double take at the sight of him. She recalls, “I was like, ‘This guy is really handsome. He’s really cute. He’s really tall!”
In addition to raising their son, Future Zahir Wilburn, Ciara plans to marry the love of her life later this fall. “I’m looking forward to just holding and growing old with my fiance — err — husband,” she says.
