Ciara’s 5-year-old son Future Zahir Wilburn has a new look, and fans are stunned. On Thursday, April 30, the R&B singer took to Instagram to show off little Future’s induction haircut. The youngster, who is known for sporting box braids, seemed to be pleased with his hairstyle.
Ciara posted a photo that showed her son standing in front of a basketball court that appeared to be outside their home. Future was honoring the late Kobe Bryant by wearing a No. 24 Lakers jersey. The tribute touched Kobe’s widow Vanessa Bryant‘s heart. She responded to the photo by writing, “❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️” underneath the post.
The young boy struck his pose by putting the jersey in his mouth and squatting with his hands on his knees. Future looked as if he were ready to start the game. Based on her caption, Ciara liked his energy and wrote, “INSPIRED.”
More than 500,000 fans reacted to the photo, with many expressing that they were sad about Future’s hairdo.
“Omg his hair is gone! 😳😢 it’s just hair though, right?”
“Aww y’all done cut his hair.”
“Why you cut his hair 😩.”
“Noooo why y’all cut his beautiful hair lol.”
“Big boy haircut! Lol😂😂.”
“Omg why??? No lining or nothing! 🙁.”
“He looks like junior from my wife and kids😩.”
“Omg the hair is GONE!! 😩😩😩 He looks adorable still ❤️❤️❤️.”
Future’s father is the rapper Future, has not publicly commented on his son’s hair transformation. The “Life is Good” artist and Ciara were previously engaged but called their relationship quits in 2014. Rumors swirled that Future was unfaithful during his relationship with the “Promise” hit-maker, but the 36-year-old Future addressed the allegations in a 2014 interview with E! News. “A lot of people said, ‘Man, he cheated,’ But our relationship had nothing to do with cheating. We grew apart,” he said.
