Ciara in Legend

Ciara's wedding was the "most perfect day" of her life.

The 'Goodies' hitmaker tied the knot with Seattle Seahawks player Russell Wilson, 27, in the UK in July and the celebration was everything she'd dreamed it would be.

She said: "I definitely can say it was two of the most perfect days in my life. The day before and the day of the actual wedding was a special time.

"When we get married, we only get it once, you can't repeat it. So, it was like, man, it's over already?

"It was honestly so beautiful and I really felt like I was in a fairy tale. It was everything I hoped for. Everything I could have hoped for, dreamed of, happened on that day. It was memorable.

"We spent two days with all the people that we love, your family and your close friends. I'm definitely still floating, it's only three months ago and it's crazy how time goes by."

Ciara is mother to two-year-old son Future Jr., who she has with former fiance Future, and she credits the youngster for helping her stay "grounded" and motivating her every day.

She told #Legend magazine: "Motherhood, oh my gosh, it's one of the best jobs in life. My family, my son and my husband, those are the things that keep me grounded and centred and there's no better feeling than coming back and seeing him smile after a long day.

"You put him in a bath, you put him in bed, read a book, those moments are great to end the day and keeps life in perspective because all your child wants from you is love.

"They don't care about a lot of the things we care about anyway. Being a mom is part of what motivates me in my every day life."

And the 30-year-old star thinks motherhood has made her more responsible and less of a perfectionist.

She said: "[Motherhood] makes you really understand the definition of being responsible.

"Because now it's like, every decision I make affects not only my life, but it affects his life.

"And having my child has really propelled me to focus even more on not only what I want personally, and then also as a businesswoman. It really helps you lock things down...

"That pure love, that instant love makes you realise a lot of things don't matter. You don't sweat the small stuff as much. Back in the day, before my child, I was such a perfectionist, you can put so much attention on some things but then you realise it really doesn't matter tomorrow. I can see that now, and focus on things that really matter."
