R&B singer Ciara made a virtual appearance on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and talked about her family's visit to the White House in November, People reports.
Ciara stopped by the White House on a campaign trail promoting the importance of COVID-19 vaccinations for children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old. The eldest of Ciara's children, Future Zahir, 7, had no problem backing up his mother’s philanthropic efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
“Before [the president] walked off, he came to say hi to us… Future, the first thing he said to the president was ‘I’m vaccinated!’” Ciara told Ellen DeGeneres, emphasizing Future's enthusiasm, according to People.
“And the president yells back, ‘I’m vaccinated, too!' So, that was really cute and sweet," she continued.
The Grammy-winner went on to describe the experience for her other children, Sienna Princess, 4, and Win Harrison, who is 18 months.
"Oh my goodness, we had the best time. Dr. [Jill] Biden is amazing. It was incredible being there and walking to greet her for the first time on the East Lawn," Ciara said.
She took to Instagram to share moments from their adventures at the Capitol.
According to People, the COVID-19 vaccine was approved for children between the ages of 5 and 11 in 2021. Now, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that officials are working on approving vaccinations for children under 5.
