Ciara was born in Austin, Texas on October 25, 1985. She is the daughter of Carlton Harris (father) and Jackie Harris (mother). She is a single child and does not have any siblings.
Due to her father being in the United States Army, she grew up in army bases in different places like Germany, New York, Utah, California, Arizona, and Nevada. During her teens, Ciara and her family settled in Atlanta.
Ciara shared that she was inspired by watching Janet Jackson and “Destiny’s Child” perform on a Television program while she was a kid. Later on, she joined a girl group called “Hear’Say” and worked on her songwriting.
Ciara graduated from “Riverdale High School” in Riverdale.
Ciara loved writing poems and stories during her childhood and teenage days. At the start, she joined a band named, Hearsay and wrote songs as well. Although the group broke up but her talent made her keep going and saw this opportunity to work on her songwriting skills.
Ciara is married to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. They began dating in early 2015 and announced their engagement on March 11, 2016.
They were married on July 6, 2016, at Peckforton Castle, England. On October 25, 2016, Ciara announced she was expecting her first child with Wilson. In April 2017, she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Sienna Princess Wilson.
Ciara has one child named Future Zahir Wilburn, born in March 2014, from a previous relationship with rapper Future. Ciara and Future were also engaged in October 2013 but called off the engagement in August 2014.
The single that put Ciara on the map, “Goodies,” was co-written by her and produced by popular rapper/producer Lil Jon. The song reached the top of the singles charts in the U. S. and the U.K. The follow-up singles, “1, 2 Step,” featuring Missy Elliott, and “Oh,” featuring rapper Ludacris, were also successes, both reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.
Ciara’s debut album, Goodies, was a surprise hit, certified triple platinum (3 million in sales) by the Recording Industry Association of America. The album also garnered the new artist four nominations at the 2005 Grammy Awards.
Her second studio album, 2006 Ciara: The Evolution, did well in the United States, reaching No. 1 on the albums chart and reaching platinum status. However, her third album release, 2009’s Fantasy Ride, marked a serious downturn in sales, despite its big hit single “Love Sex Magic,” featuring superstar Justin Timberlake (and the racy video that accompanied the song).
Always known for her agile dancer’s body and unique dance moves, Ciara has become a fixture in fashion magazines as well, partly due to her deal with Wilhelmina Models, which focuses on casting her for photo shoots and commercials.
Her career has generated eight Billboard Hot 100 top 10 singles, three MTV Video Music Awards and one Grammy Award. She has also written or co-written songs for some of music’s biggest stars, including Missy Elliott and Bow Wow
Ciara’s Net worth is estimated to be about 16 million dollars
