Friday evening, pregnant musical artist Ciara, 31, married to NFL star quarterback, Russell Wilson, with the Seattle Seahawks, tweeted out to her Twitter followers, saying she thanked both God’s Grace and “amniotic fluid,” for making it through a car crash she was involved in without any injuries to herself or her unborn baby. The car accident happened earlier in the day in Los Angeles, California.
E! Online reported that the car accident Ciara was involved in happened when she was behind the wheel of “a white Mercedes SUV,” and attempted to make a left turn. As she was in the process of turning, E! News confirmed that another car, a gray Volvo rammed into Ciara’s vehicle on the passenger side.
Photographs taken at the scene show Ciara on the phone. She was likely informing her husband, insurance agent, or possibly friends, about the accident and letting them know she was okay.
Ciara and the other driver escaped the car accident without injury. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said a traffic unit that arrived on the scene helped both drivers exchange contact and insurance information.
Us Weekly reported that after the accident, Ciara was holding her chest and shoulder as she moved around and talked on the phone. There will not be an investigation regarding the car accident.
A rep for Ciara reported that both the I Bet singer and her baby are doing well. Ciara’s rep confirmed that the other driver involved in the car accident travelling in the bus lane illegally and then hit the right side of Ciara’s.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department said that the car accident took place at approximately 11:48 a.m. on Wilshire. An eyewitness said Ciara appeared to be “calm” following the car accident, but the other driver seemed more stunned. A source said that both drivers shook hands and were nice.
Ciara has not yet revealed the due date for her baby. In a statement she gave to HarpersBazaar.com, she joked about “delivering two babies,” referring to not only her unborn child, but also to “an upcoming album.”
Ciara was in the news earlier this week because of the “topless photo shoot” that Ciara did for HarpersBazaar.com, in which she bared “her baby bump.” The musical artist held her 2-year-old son, Future Jr., with her ex Future, against her chest. Behind her, Wilson can be seen, cradling her baby bump.
Ciara and Future had been engaged, but reportedly called off their engagement during a messy split. Ciara talked about not feeling she was being given enough support from her ex, Future. Now, with the support of her husband, Russell Wilson, and her second baby on the way, Ciara has a new lease on life, and she feels ready to introduce her son to his younger brother or sister.
