Ciara was recently at a loss for words when she was asked about her current co-parenting experience. She shares her oldest son, Future Zahir, 9, with her ex-fiancé, the rapper whose stage name is Future.
Mawema then joined in and began laughing shortly after.
“Thembi, you’re awesome,” the singer said while laughing. “You’re awesome.”
“OK, I feel like that says it all,” Mawema responded.
“Yeah,” Ciara replied.
Representatives for Ciara and Future did not immediately return a request for comment.
Ciara photographed with her husband, Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, and their children Sienna, Future and Win on March 16, 2022 in Englewood, Colorado.
Ciara and Future got engaged in 2013 and welcomed Future Zahir in May 2014. They announced their split and called off their engagement months later.
The singer began dating Wilson in 2015. The couple wed in Cheshire, England, the following year.
Wilson often celebrates being a dad of three. He told GQ in 2021 that Future Zahir coming into his life was a “blessing.”
“I think the greatest thing that I’ve ever learned in life is probably in that relationship with Future, because the reality of being a stepparent is that biologically they’re not necessarily yours, but the reality is that you have to love them as if they are,” he said at the time.
In July, the quarterback posted a photo on Instagram of him walking next to Future Zahir on a football field, writing in the post’s caption, “Best part of the day. #DadLife.”
