Ciara is opening up about her painful third pregnancy.

The singer welcomed her third child, Win, back in July – she also shares six-year-old Future with rapper Future and three-year-old Sienna with Russell Wilson.

According to E! News, while in the press room at the American Music Awards, the Level Up hitmaker who hosted the AMAs in 2019 said: "By the way, I learned that I was pregnant this time last year when I was hosting the show.

"When I went home both Russell and I found out, so a lot of special memories being here. But from a creative perspective, you feel like you have no choice but to be creative because you are in the same four walls every day. And then being pregnant, it felt like time was going really slow."

She added that her pregnancy had been physically challenging amid the pandemic. "We were really trying to find ways to impact and give back, and it has been a blessing to be able to give back during a time like this when so much is being taken away. This pregnant lady needed something to help the mind get through it," she said. "And my body was so achy; I thought I was going to need a cane at the end of my pregnancy, to be honest.

"I was penguin walking throughout the house at the end, but the creativity helped me get through it all, and it was a blessing to be able to go to."

She said: "The time I get to spend with my family, I have been really grateful that my family gets more time than ever during these days. So, I have been able to find the silver lining in all of it."
