Ciara is spilling the beans about her relationship with NFL star Russell Wilson and their vow of abstinence. 


In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Ciara explains that their physical contact is limited to hugging and kissing. But it isn’t always easy.

“We’re hanging in there. I’m not gonna lie. 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 said.

“But 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!" the singer continued.

Ciara, who recently filed a lawsuit against her child’s father, Future, also explained what exactly abstinence means to her and Wilson. Many people probably wonder, is it first, second or third base?

“You get to hug and you get to have a nice good kiss, but you have to be careful not to go too far so you don’t end up in the place you’re trying to avoid being in. Strong, strong, strong, strong! Just the strongest resistance to temptation,” she said.

So basically first base. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

Last year, Wilson remarked how God had brought Ciara into his life, so one can only hope that he also helps keep her there—or helps her realize that maybe she should stop talking about her personal life, just the way she wants Future to.
