Ciara: I’m Happy as Long as My Toddler Isn’t Swearing

Ciara’s son, Future Jr., is a little parrot. “He’s at the stage where he’s repeating everything you say,” the singer told Us Weekly at the Veuve Clicquot Carnaval on Saturday, February 20, in Miami. “I learned that in a funny way the other day. He was like, ‘shoot’ and ‘dang,’ and I was like, 'What is that?’” But the “I Bet” performer isn’t too concerned. “As long as he’s not saying any of the other words that come behind a ‘D’ and an ’S’!” she joked.

Slang aside, Ciara’s “angel baby” is making his mother proud.

“He knows all his colors. He knows how to count from 1 to 10 in Spanish,” Ciara, 30, bragged about her boy with her ex-fiancé, 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 “Goodies” songstress and her boyfriend, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, are choosing to remain abstinent until marriage, she doesn’t expect Future Jr. to follow in her footsteps and remain celibate.

“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.”
