By  | 

Three-year-old Future Zahir Wilburn is not even out of his toddler stage yet, but he is already paving a career for himself as a model. The son of R&B singer Ciara and Atlanta rapper Future is has landed his first major commercial campaign as a Gap Kids model! It’s the little tyke’s modeling debut, but he is already showing how much being in front of the camera comes second nature to him.

Ciara was the epitome of a proud mama and shared an exclusive photo from the shoot in a tweet via Twitter on Wednesday (July 19). “Holding back these happy tears! I’m so proud!” she wrote in the tweet, “Future Zahir has booked his 1st commercial campaign with @GapKids @Gap #DreamsDoComeTrue!”

The first look of the Gap Kids advertorial shows Future Zahir embodying #blackboyjoy as he is snapped mid-laugh in a run towards the camera that captured the money shot.

Baby Future Zahir’s dad also shared positive sentiments that highlighted his young son’s big accomplishment. The “Mask Off” rapper took to Twitter to add, “Baby future did a great job for gapkids. Super smart Super fly,u deserve it king! Love u.”

In the past, Future and Ciara have had their share of problems when it came to facilitating a healthy co-parenting relationship. Future was not an advocate for Ciara’s relationship with now husband Russell Wilson and even referred to their son being around the NFL player as Ciara being “evil.” From then on, Future continued to voice frustrations with the “Body Party” singer publicly, regarding child support and not being allowed to see his son.

The rapper even went so far as to tweet, “I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuure…the f*ckery for 15k a month.”

Ciara ended up filing a lawsuit against her former fiancé for defamation and slander, requesting $15 million for damages that incurred.

The estranged pair have seemingly come pretty far since the antics and back and forth of their past. It is beautiful to see that they can set aside their differences in celebration of the son they share. In fact, it was just this most recent Mother’s Day where fans saw the rhymer dedicate a special message to Ci Ci and their son via Instagram.

“I appreciate u more than u know,our son is an incredible kid. We made a king, Happy Mothers Day C!” the caption read.

Recently, 31-year-old Ciara became a mom for the second time with the arrival of she and Russell Wilson’s baby girl, Sienna Princess Wilson.
