Ciara: Abstinence makes us 'real'

BANG Showbiz

CIARA thinks abstaining from sex shows she is "real".

The 29-year-old singer - who has 15-month-old son Future Jr. with former fiancé Future - is currently dating NFL star Russell Wilson but they have agreed not to sleep together before marriage, and she says the sportsman's decision to be open about their private life has made them more approachable to other couples in similar situations.

She said: "You know, when Russell talked about it, he was being honest. For what it's worth I think there are so many people like us.

"We get to share real things. We're real people.

"I run into different people and they'll talk to me about their journey and their relationships, so I think that's been really cool and it's a healthy thing.

"It's a healthy conversation we all get to have as adults. I'm not sweating it at all."

The 'Goodies' singer went on to praise the Seattle Seahawks quarterback as her "best friend" and the "best guy in the world".

She told E!: "He's the best guy in the world for me. He's my best friend and I just put positive things in the universe. We want to continue having the best relationship and friendship we could have."
