The singer says, "He was just really, really a sweetheart."
There's no denying that Ciara is head-over-heels in love with her fiancé, Future. During a recent interview with E! Online at the photo shoot for her Brides magazine cover, the singer even teared up when talking about her man and their upcoming nuptials.
The sweetest moment came when she started gushing about the first time she laid eyes on the rapper and their beginning interactions. "I was in a place of self-reflection and trying to find my groove as a woman. With love, I was kinda like, 'You know what? I'm gonna really close that door off and if something hits me, it just has to hit me,'" she said.
"So I was hearing him and the conversation was amazing and we [were] just talking and he was so sweet and he was so gentle. Ahh! I don't know why I'm getting emotional. He was just really, really a sweetheart," Ciara continued.
The 28-year-old new mommy admitted that she wasn't looking for a relationship when the pair started working together, but eventually she was smitten.
"I wasn't looking at him for that part of life. Like I wasn't looking at him to look for love. Just like meeting an amazing person, we're gonna work together, have a good time. But I had a double take at one point in time and I was like, 'This guy is really handsome. He's really cute. He's really tall!' You don't know what to expect when you meet somebody, but I'm looking at him and I'm thinking, 'Wow!'"
Ciara, who said she's looking forward to growing old with her fiancé, looks so in love and we're thrilled that things have been going so well for then both.
