Ciara Performs in Video for Pro Black Song ‘Rooted’ Days Before Giving Birth

Ciara debuted the video for her latest singe “Rooted” featuring Ester Dean last Thursday at midnight and in it, she appears very pregnant right before giving birth to her third child.

The visuals are stunning and feature dancers donning natural ethnic hairstyles like bantu knots, afros, braids and cornrows and messages of solidarity to the the late John Lewis who recently passed away, the Black Lives Matter movement and Black women and men who died in police encounters in recent and distant past.

The singer, who just gave birth to her third child, but second with husband RussellWilson, said she made the music video days before the baby’s arrival.

That is amazing because if you watch the video linked below, you will she was showing all of her very energetic dance moves and even did a twerk or two!

It is a powerful song and comes on the heels of the release of Beyonce‘s pro-Africa “Black is King” visual album that debuted on Disney Plus earlier in the month. I can dig it.

Her son, Winn Harrison, is featured in mom’sbelly but as are his older siblings, 6-year old Future and 3-year old Sienna who make cameos by mom who is donning a extra large afro, and grills with the word “Melanin” on them.

She is the latest celebrity mom to appear in a music video.

Katy Perry famously revealed her first pregnancy in the video for her song “Never Worn White” in March.  An as we  routinely report over the years as the institutional source of bump watch news on the Internet, Carrie Underwood, Cardi B, Natalie Portman, Beyonce, P!nk, Deborah Cox, and Whitney Houston all were in music videos while expecting.

Fun! Watch!

Carrie Underwood Joins Roster of Celeb Baby Bumps Featured in Their Music Videos

Carrie Underwood has joined the small legions of celebrity singers who released music videos while visibly pregnant.

In the video for her new song, “Love Wins“, underbelly shots of the country music phenom reveals her baby bump in an empire waist rose gown. In the emotional son, Underwood addresses a lot of hot-button political topics such as gun violence, politics, our very heavily divided world while offering the solution to it all: Love!

“Love is power, love is a smile[,]

Love reaches out, love is the remedy[,]

Love is the answer, love’s an open door[,]

Love is the only thing worth fighting for[.]”

Underwood,  announced last month she was expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher.  

Earlier this year, Cardi B dropped several videos off of her debut album “Invasion of Privacy” and her baby bump too was very much present.

A long time ago, women were hidden away when pregnant and certainly, they weren’t flaunted in the media or music videos. In modern times, beautiful pregnant women are featured prominently as with a very 9-month pregnant Natalie Portman, days before giving birth in the music video for James Blake’s  song “My Willing Heart,” released on Monday.

But she isn’t the first one. Beyonce, P!nk, Deborah Cox, and Whitney Houston have also appeared very pregnant in music videos for their songs

In 2011, Beyonce was pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy in her Countdown Video. That year, P!nk was also visibly pregnant with her daughter Willow in her girls empowerment song “F*&>Perfect”.

Before then, Canadian -born artist Deborah Cox showed off her 3rd trimester belly in the later frames of her “Beautiful U R” video” which is also about female empowerment and self esteem.  Finally, Whitney Houston, was also uplifting women in her remake of Chaka Khan‘s “I’m Every Woman” and was pregnant with her daughter Bobbi Kristina. (RIP to both of them).

Days before giving birth, Natalie Portman starred in the recently released music video for James Blake’s  song “My Willing Heart,” released on Monday.

In the black and white video which Anna Rose Holmer directed, the Jackie and The Black Swan actress floats in a swimming pool and is later seen in a room caressing her bare baby belly to the melodic but haunting song.

The Oscar- winning actress and her choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied welcomed daughter Amala days after wrapping up shooting of the video. The couple also have a 5-year-old son, Aleph.



The song appears on the British singer/songwriter’s critically acclaimed 2016 album, “The Colour in Anything.” He is famous for experimenting with different styles of music, including electronic and rap.

In 2011, Beyonce was pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy in her Countdown Video. That year, P!nk was also visibly pregnant with her daughter Willow in her girls empowerment song “F*&>Perfect”.
