With songs like "Draco" and "My Collection" in his cache, Future doesn't always come off as the most tender guy in the world. Still, it's clear he's got a special place in his heart for his son Baby Future and Ciara, whom he fathered Baby Future with a few years ago. It's apparently with that spirit Hendrix used his Instagram account to issue Ciara a special Mother's Day message yesterday (May 14).

In the post, which features a photo of Ci Ci holding up their son Baby Future, Hendrix wrote, "I appreciate u more than u know,our son is an incredible kid. We made a king, Happy Mothers Day C!"

Future and Ciara had been going at it in court for quite a while, but things seemingly died down a good bit when Ciara dropped her defamation suit against the Atlanta rapper at the top of the year. A short time later, the two settled their child custody battle in court.

With the aforementioned legal matters handled, perhaps it was easier for Future to send a shout-out to Ci Ci. Future's currently knee deep in his Nobody's Safe tour, which features the likes of A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez and Migos, so he doesn't really have time for bitterness.

You can see Future's touching message to Ciara in the Instagram post below. It's pretty awesome.
