Ciara is sharing her postpartum fitness plans with her fans — announcing how she hopes to shed 48 pounds after giving birth to her third child, Win Harrison, just last month.
The singer revealed a photo to Instagram last Monday sharing in the caption how she’s ready to “work really hard” to lose weight, continuing with: “48lbs to go! Starting the game plan tomorrow!! P.s. don’t know how easy it’s going be considering 3 baby’s now! Going to work really hard at this! Let’s go Mamma’s ????????????????”
Ciara and husband Russell Wilson welcomed Win — named for the Seahawks quarterback’s late father — on July 23. The two are also parents to daughter Sienna Princess, 3, and Ciara’s son, Future Zahir, 6.
The singer recently opened up the week after Win was born about the hurdles of going from two children to three, saying how there will “definitely going to be a lot of learning to do because every day is a new day in this era.”
“But I think as a parent, once you have two, any more after that it’s like you’re ready,” she added. “A baby has so many milestones and there’s so much to look forward to.”
“It’s a house full of love,” she said. Win’s older siblings Sienna and Future were anticipating his arrival, Ciara revealed to PEOPLE just one day before giving birth.
“Sienna’s been practicing doing the diapers on her baby doll, and Future says he’s going to teach him a lot of stuff,” she said. “I find them playing in the baby’s room like it’s their own. It’s really sweet.”
And while Ciara has described her pregnancy with Win as her “slowest pregnancy of all,” it doesn’t mean she didn’t stop working. The momma of three recently spoke on working while creating her newest song, “Rooted,” while in labor with Win.
“I was so proud of the process because I shot the video two weeks away from delivery for one part, and then I shot the other part just two days out,” she said in a behind-the-scenes look at the music video’s making.
“I probably could only do each take for like two minutes and then I needed to take a break,” she explained in the video. “It also felt good working on it while knowing I was about to give birth to my newest angel, I was still grinding, and making it all happen at the same time.”
“Even down to literally being in labor having to give approvals for the song to make the deadlines — it was just an incredible experience that I will forever cherish.”
