Cassie is on a new journey in life and could not be happier about her new blessings. The singer and model ended her high profile relationship with Diddy last year, fell in love with celebrity trainer Alex Fine, and is pregnant with her first child. In an interview with French fashion magazine L’Officiel, the mommy-to-be gushed about her future and becoming a role model to her daughter.
On how becoming pregnant has changed her out, Cassie tells the magazine, “My priorities have absolutely changed, not just for creating an amazing future and life for my daughter, but because I want her to be proud of me. I’ve heard people say that they’re nervous to raise females in today’s world, but I’m excited! I can’t wait to see her grow, learn and challenge the world right back!”
Cassie also hopes to be a woman her daughter can look up to. “[I want to be] the kind of role model that shows her that she can be whomever she wants to be and that she has all of the love and support in the world,” Cassie told the magazine. “I hope to make her understand the bigger picture in life and that you don’t have to solely be one thing in this world. I want her to know that she can choose.”
Cassie’s new blessings are flowing not just on a personal level, but professionally as well. She just released a new single called “Don’t Let Go” and is now working with a team of black female creatives. “The energy I feel when we’re in a room together is unmatchable,” she says of her new girl squad. “We all have our own levels of experience and we bring our best to the table. We support each other and balance each other out all at the same time. It just works.”
So what’s different about this new era of Cassie? She’s making decisions that reflect her own best interests. “I used to spend the most time overthinking the smallest things and always worrying about how people felt that I neglected how I really felt and what would make me happy,” Cassie confessed. “I wasn’t creating from the heart. I’m still making sure that things are well thought out, but I’m doing what makes sense for my life. I’m just a woman coming into my own learning to trust myself. It’s empowering.”
