They may not be together anymore, but Ciara and Future will always be in each other's lives thanks to their beautiful baby boy.
Whatever differences they have was all put aside yesterday for the sake of baby Future as the former couple came together to celebrate his first birthday. Yup, Juicy Man is already one!
Big Future posted a quick, black-and-white snap of him playing with little Future, while proud mama Ciara can be spotted in the picture's foreground. The singer also posted a snap of her own with the one-year-old wearing a Mickey Mouse cap, along with the caption:
HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY!! I Can't Believe It! Feels Like It Was Just Yesterday I Was Carrying You In My Belly!:) Now I'm Chasing After You! I Love You Soooo Much #JuicyMan #MyLittleFuture
It's excellent seeing Ciara co-parent and staying optimistic so well. When a woman gets blind-sided by the demise of her relationship, it's not uncommon to see her become resentful towards the child's father. Ciara doesn't appear to be taking that route at all.
The 29-year-old "I Bet" singer spoke about her status with Future during The Breakfast Club last month and said they were "cool." She went on to explain how important it was to communicate and that she didn't believe in letting their break-up affect her energy in a negative fashion.
On the Status of Her and Future
Well you know, I mean, it clearly didn't work out. But I have the greatest gift; the greatest joy in my life is my son. Honestly, I feel like everything in life happens for a reason and my son has been the greatest gift that God has given me in my life. He has been the most game-changing thing in my life in a necessary way. So that's pretty much what happened.
I can't really break all that down (for why we broke up) you know, because I don't really think all that matters to tell you the truth, especially when the ending is as great it is, with my son. You know, that's what worked out. My son.
On if Her and Future are Cordial
We're (hesitates) we're cool. We have a child together and I think as a parent it's important to communicate. We don't talk every day but there is no need to. My son is clearly the connection between he and I and as parents I think it is important to communicate.
I like to stay happy and live life right and make the best of life. And I think that when you carry a certain energy or when you have funky energy within yourself, you just can't grow. And you can't really move how you need to. So for me, I just like to be happy and cool with pretty much everybody. And that's pretty much it.
I've been experimenting with life clearly and I'm still trying to figure it all out. At the end of the day, I roll with love. And I really believe that my son's father had the greatest intentions to love me. And a beautiful thing came from that so that's just how I see it.
Ciara also makes sure baby Future has a relationship with his half-siblings. She revealed on Ebro In The Morning earlier this month that baby Future would be getting two parties, one in Los Angeles, and one in Atlanta, which would be attended by Future's kids.
Now that's how you successfully co-parent and keep things cordial!
Happy Birthday Baby Future! (Time Flies!)
