Ciara and Russell Wilson went from being fairly tight-lipped about their relationship to letting it all hang out, in just a few months. Now that they’ve officially come out as an item, they’re confirming what’s going down in the bedroom as well. Simply put, the answer is absolutely nothing. Over the weekend during a special Q&A session at San Diego’s The Rock Church, the Seattle Seahawk revealed that he and Cici have chosen to abstain from sex.
According to Wilson, while waiting in Ciara’s dressing room during one of her tour stops, he heard God speak to him regarding the singer.
“She was on tour; she was traveling. I was looking at her in the mirror. She was in the dressing room getting ready to go before she went on stage, and she was sitting there, and God spoke to me and said, ‘I need you to lead her.’ And I was like, ‘Really?’ And he was like, ‘No, I want you to lead her.’ So I told her, ‘What would you do if we took all of that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus’ way?’ And she was relieved.”
Oh, and if there’s any confusion about what doing it “Jesus’ way” means, he made it clear that he’s talking about getting busy.
“We’re talking about sex,” he clarified.
Of course, those who have embarked down the path know that the abstinent lifestyle is not easy.
“I knew that God brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me, and to bless so many people. With the impact that she has and the impact that I have—we’re not going to be perfect by any means. Life is not perfect. Nobody is perfect. But He’s anointed both of us, and he’s calling us to do something miraculous. And I told her—and she completely agreed–that we love each other without that. If you can somebody without that, then you can really love.
I ain’t going to lie to y’all now, I need y’all to pray for us. I know y’all seen her on the screen. If there’s a 10, she’s a 15, so pray for me. I gotta keep my mind clear and my heart clear.”
The Superbowl champion also didn’t hold back in regard to his feelings about his new lady.
“She’s a sweetheart. She’s everything you could ever want. Yeah, she’s a special girl, honestly. I met her like five, six months ago. The funny thing is, I told somebody that she was the girl I wanted to be with before I even met her. It was before I met her, I was like, I’m probably going to end up with Ciara. True story.”
“She’s been through some heartaches; I’ve been through some heartaches. I was married before. I married a person I went to high school with. I met her when I was 15. That didn’t work out, unfortunately. For me, I just trust that God would do the healing process; that he would figure things out for me. I’ve gone through some ups and downs and all of that. I had to really, really focus on walking in the Spirit and living in it. I met this girl named Ciara, who is the most beautiful woman in the world. She is the most kind woman in the world. She’s the most kind person; the most engaging person. She’s everything I could ever want.”
