Inside Ciara's Painful Pregnancy

Ciara is still basking in the joy of welcoming her third child, her son Win, with husband Russell Wilson. The couple welcomed the bundle of joy in July 2020. The third child joins older sister Sienna, and older brother Future, whom Ciara had with ex-boyfriend Future.

With three kids running around, the pop star and NFL player have a lot on their plate, but Ciara previously stated her pregnancy that the COVID-19 era has had a silver lining, she told Entertainment Tonight. Her husband has been home more, and the couple gets to spend extra time with the kids. Still, Ciara also mentioned that it seemed like time was slowing down during her pregnancy.

"You feel like you have no choice but to be creative because you are in the same four walls every day," said the artist in a press room at the 2020 American Music Awards about life in quarantine, according to E! News. "And then being pregnant, it felt like time was going really slow."

The "Level Up" singer revealed that despite having the additional time with her family and extra support during her pregnancy, the journey to her third pregnancy was painful.

Ciara thought she needed a cane to help her walk

Now a mother of three, singer Ciara is opening up about how her third pregnancy felt like her "slowest pregnancy." Speaking to the press at the 2020 American Music Awards, the singer shared that carrying her now months old son, Win was a painful experience.

"This pregnant lady needed something to help the mind get through it," said the artist about her experience being pregnant during the coronavirus pandemic (via E! News). "And my body was so achy, I thought I was going to need a cane at the end of my pregnancy to be honest. I was penguin walking throughout the house at the end, but the creativity helped me get through it all and it was a blessing to be able to go to."

Despite her "penguin walking" and body aching, Ciara still found time to give back to those less fortunate during the pandemic thus far.

She continued: "We were really trying to find ways to impact and give back and it has been a blessing to be able to give back during a time like this when so much is being taken away."
