Ciara is going to "give [herself] grace" over the weight gain that came with her pregnancy.

The 38-year-old pop singer welcomed Amora in December 2023 with husband Russell Wison and admitted that her weight has been going up and down since the birth but she is going to allow herself some treats amid her health kick because she "needs it" for the benefit of her mental health.

She told E! News: "Sometimes, you want to make things picture-perfect and life doesn't allow you to do that. This is real s***. There's no perfectness to motherhood. For example, I had a scale drop and now the scale went back up. I was like, uhhh.

"I'm going to give myself grace, and eat a couple of potatoes and ice cream because I need that for my mind. That's where I am with it—and it's okay!"

The 'Level Up' hitmaker - who also has Sienna, seven, and Win, three with NFL star Russell as well as nine-year-old Future with rapper Future - added that her husband is "embracing" her body for what it is at the moment even though she has a goal weight in mind that she would like to get to at some point.

She said: "There's a weight I want to get to, but my husband is telling me, 'You don't need to go that far'. He's embracing my curves; he likes my thicky era."
