How Russell Wilson Won Over Ciara Russell Wilson Channing Crowder Remember a time when there was no Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Ciara, or baby Future? Exactly. While it feels like you’ve been rocking with these two for ages, it wasn’t too long ago that they were still just getting to know each other.
A few years back (back in 2012 to be exact), Russell went on Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Radio show to reveal how he first met his now-wife of three years, who is also mom to his adorable son. In case you forgot, Russell and Ciara were set up by her cousin Tristan Thompson.
And as soon as she saw him at dinner, she knew she wanted to get to know him better—and so did he! When I walked into dinner my cousin Tristan Thompson set me up on a blind date, she said during an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club last year.
I looked over and it was Russell. He had been looking at me from across the room, she continued. He came over to talk to me and I kind of felt like [I] could trust him because he seemed nice. Their connection was instant because not only did they have fun together but their mutual attraction took them straight home after dinner.
We didn’t even go out, Ciara revealed about going home together right after meeting one another. Then Russell dropped down on one knee: That night we talked until 5 a.m., she told People magazine. Then he woke up early and wrote me a love song that played while I was sleeping.
He got down on one knee, put flowers all around me, and sang to me again. Then we went back to sleep until noon. Their wedding planning began shortly thereafter: Fast forward four months later, Ciara revealed during an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show that she spilled details about what happened when she told Russell’s parents about their engagement.
I’ll never forget it, she recalled. It was pretty nerve-wracking. So I called up Mama Wilson and Daddy Wilson and asked if they would come to Atlanta. They agreed to come out to Atlanta. She explained that she and Russell decided to break things off when things became awkward between them. As much as I loved him, it wasn’t working anymore, she admitted. We’d become very distant in our relationship and it felt more like a friendship than anything else.
For her part, Ciara moved on pretty quickly after calling off her engagement: My ex-fiancé has done an amazing job taking care of our son since then and I couldn’t ask for more, Russell’s wife told Us Weekly magazine earlier this month. He is loving, caring, and always puts our child first before anything else.
I feel like I am in a good place and I’m excited about life. I’m excited about new beginnings. It’s funny, Ciara added to Entertainment Tonight, because before Russell and I dated, he was always so loving to me. He was always so supportive of me as an artist and of course being a football player he didn’t want me to travel and take such a big risk.
Now that we’re married, it’s completely different because he encourages me to do whatever I want to do. This isn’t her first marriage either: Ciara was previously married to producer/rapper Roy Lil’ Wayne Thomas Jr., whom she divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage.
It’s a modern-day fairytale for sure. I think that it’s really sweet and I wish them nothing but success, Ciara’s cousin Tristan Thompson told E! News in January of 2017. We’re super happy for them. What do you think of Russell and Ciara’s marriage? Sound off in the comments below!
