Ciara and her longtime boyfriend Russell Wilson made headlines after he revealed that they are abstaining from sex until they are married. But Ciara has revealed that it is much easier said than done.
“It’s going pretty good. We’re hanging in there,” she told Cosmopolitan magazine at the 100th anniversary for Keds earlier this week.
“I’m human, so it is not easy, especially when I look at him and I think he is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen—that I’ve ever laid my eyes on, to be honest. I’m like, ‘Look the other way! Look the other way!’”
Ciara and Wilson went public with their relationship early last year. And it’s safe to say they have gotten lots of criticism since then, from their choice to abstain from sex until they say their “I Dos” to the father of Ciara’s child and her ex-fiancee, rapper Future, dissing her for bringing the child around Wilson.
But it looks like it’s safe to say they won’t have regrets with being celibate.
“He’s such an awesome guy and the cool thing is that every day, we’re growing with each other. We get to have really healthy conversations and focus on each other as people. That is very important to me and him. It’s very valuable. We’re just enjoying ourselves and going one day at a time and praying and staying positive. Being strong here!”
Still, she said while they hug and kiss, it doesn’t go much further than that. Or things could “go too far.”
