Sadly, it looks like there's not going to be a wedding for Ciara and Future. The singer confirmed she has ended her nine month-long engagement to the rapper after a flurry of cheating rumors. The couple announced their upcoming nuptials this past October, with word of a pregnancy following shortly after.

The glowing new mom has been showing signs of a break for the past few weeks on her Instagram, posting plenty of photos highlighting her hand sans her now-famous 15-carat engagement ring.

You can get a good look at her many hints, here:

And both of her hands without diamonds here:

And one last look here:

With the recent birth of baby Future Jr., Ciara seems to be immersing herself in the joys of motherhood. She just took her adorable baby boy to Ibiza to celebrate BFF and Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci's birthday, posting photos of herself with her son alongside the caption: "He's So Fascinated. I Am Too. #SoakingItAllIn #Love #IbizaMemories"

And just yesterday, Ciara posted a series of selfies, the last of which revealed her current mood. "2Day Was A Good Day. #CCMTVHouseOfStyle Coming Soon. I'm Gonna #DoMore Baby!:) #Zonin. Xo," Ciara wrote to accompany the photo, below.

It looks like the star is taking the high road from the whole situation, expressing her deep love for her new son and focusing on her career. "I'm in an even more expressive place," the R&B singer said to Us Weekly. "I think that when you become a mom... you don't really worry about the small stuff. I'm just way more centered. It makes you focus even more on what your goals are in life. And I just feel a whole new spiritual energy that's happening."

It's no secret new mom and bride-to-be Ciara has her hands full these days — she's raising her two-month old, Future Jr., planning her wedding to fiancé, Future, and recording a new album. But luckily for Brides readers, the "Body Party" singer took time out of her busy schedule to cover our August/September issue. And now, we're taking you behind the scenes at our photo shoot.

In our new issue, Ciara beams in a number of incredible wedding dresses from designers like Reem Acra, Tara LaTour and Mark Zunino, but it was her own jewelry that added serious sparkle to her looks. Her stunning 15-carat three-stone engagement ring, gold bracelets, and a simple pendant necklace showcase the surprisingly classic style the engaged star plans to channel on her wedding day.

"For my wedding, I'm just looking forward to it being another unforgettable moment," Ciara exclusively told us while on set. "I want it to be fun. I want the food to be great. And, of course, the dress has to be everything."

The star opened up — and got emotional — about her fiancé, too. "When I met my fiancé, I had to do a double take," she said of Future as she wiped back tears. "I was like, 'This guy is really handsome, he's really cute.'"

Ciara also shared a few bits of advice for fellow brides-to-be. "You will have a lot of ups and you may have some downs," Ciara explained. "Your love should be your best friend. Make the best of life. Don't over think things." We couldn't agree more!

Here, check out a few more exclusive moments from Ciara's cover shoot:

Though she admitted in our cover story that she wants her wedding-day look to be "elegant with a little edge," Ciara was totally sexy in this body-hugging, asymmetrical dress paired with a cool moto-style jacket.

Ciara and Brides Editor in Chief Keija Minor were all smiles as they reviewed some of the first shots on set.

It's been one busy year for Ciara. First, her rapper boyfriend of almost two years Future proposed to her with a whopping 15-carat engagement ring. Then, she announced she was pregnant and just one month ago she gave birth to an adorable baby boy, Future Jr. And now, the "Body Party" singer is opening up about all of her recent personal milestones in our August/September issue!

Ciara graces our new cover in a long-sleeve embroidered Chantilly lace Reem Acra gown, accessorized with her very own blinding bridal bling and bracelet. A simply-chic bouquet of cream garden roses, crafted by Miho Kosuda, plus soft, natural makeup by Urban Decay and effortless blonde waves tied the entire aisle-ready look together.

Inside the issue, Ciara dishes all about Future, motherhood, and, of course, her wedding plans. The singer admitted she "loved" the classic dress she rocks on our cover, which is surprising since she's known for her daring red carpet looks. "My everyday style is what I call 'tomboy chic,'" Ciara tells us. "But for my wedding, I'm going to do elegance with a little edge."

As for her fiancé, she let it slip that she always knew she'd spend forever with Future. When asked when she knew he'd be her husband, she replied: "Very early on. He came with something that I'd never felt before: the true presence of a man."

That's all we're revealing for now! For more Ciara scoop (and to see more pics of the star wearing stunning wedding gowns!), you'll have to pick up our August/September issue, on newsstands nationwide July 8.
