Prior to meeting Ciara through a mutual friend, Russell Wilson told friends that he would be with her. Several months after their first encounter, the two are happily in love—and from the looks of it—preparing to build a life together.
“I knew God had 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 I have,” the Seattle Seahawks quarterback told Rolling Stone. “He has anointed both of us — he’s calling for us to do something miraculous and special.”
He also discussed his world, which centers around sports, colliding with hers, which is located more along the music and pop-culture realms.
“We connect so well, and we have the same vision,” he shared. “It’s a perfect fit, you know? Is it weird? No. It feels right.”
Interestingly, Ciara, who was in London for a concert, was initially unaware that Russell had announced their decision to abstain from sex, but she was quickly alerted to the shocking reveal when she checked out her Twitter mentions. The two connected for a conversation shortly after, and they were able to get on the same page.
“The thing about Russell is he’s real,” said the singer. “And that was a moment that got real real.”
“We share similar views on pretty much everything. It’s just superorganic,” she continued.
