R&B star Ciara has to push herself “extra hard” at the gym because the mother-of-two suffers from separated abdominal muscles.
The Goodies singer welcomed her second child, daughter Sienna, last spring (17), and she has been documenting her exercise regimen via social media ever since.
Fans have been sharing their praise for the impressive results of her dedication ever since, and on Saturday (07Apr18), Ciara revealed part of the reason why she has been putting in the hours to get her six-pack back, explaining she was previously diagnosed with diastasis recti, which can cause the appearance of a post-baby belly pooch.
“I have Diastastis Recti (sic) from both of my pregnancies, so I have to work extra hard to regain my core strength,” she captioned a photo of herself in her sports bra and leggings, displaying part of her abdomen. “Determined. Let’s Go Mammas!”
Ciara shares Sienna with her husband Russell Wilson, while she is also mum to three-year-old son Future Zahir, from her previous relationship with rapper Future.
Luckily, the 32-year-old, who frequently incorporates dance routines into her workouts, can turn to Russell whenever she needs a little extra motivation to keep her fitness levels up. The American football star, who plays as quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, has to stay in shape during the NFL’s off season, and he joined Ciara for a sweat session over the weekend.
“Partner 4 Life,” she wrote next to a sweet picture of the smiling pair during an exercise break.
The couple wed in 2016.
