“I Bet” singer Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson have been open about their decision to remain celibate while unmarried, but the happy couple might not have to abstain from sex for long. The 2013 Super Bowl champion teased he might propose marriage to his girlfriend.
The Dan Patrick Show on Sports Radio KWSN asked which would come first: Another Super Bowl ring or an engagement ring for Ciara? Wilson responded Friday, “Hopefully both,” according to Bossip.
Wilson, 26, gushed over Ciara, 29. “She’s the best,” he said. “She truly is one of the best people I’ve ever met.”
The quarterback even joked that the starlet could outrun him in a race. “You gotta see her run man. She ran track back in the day,” Wilson said. “She’s got long legs, she can move.”
The couple has dated since April after they met through mutual friends. They recently caused a controversy after Ciara brought her son, Future Zahir, to Wilson’s practice with the Seahawks.
A photo of Future Zahir hugging his mother’s new beau went viral and upset his father with the same name, Future. He and Ciara were engaged, but they split after the rapper allegedly cheated on her.
Future, whose real name is Nayvadius Cash, took to Twitter to slam Ciara. “Never make a permanent decision over a temporary circumstance. #umtoobossedup. Don’t direct my tweets to no punk a—hoe,” he said in a series of expletive-filled tweets last Saturday. “Dis internet s--- mad funny Yo!”
Ciara ignored her ex and took her son, who she nicknamed “juicy man,” to another one of Wilson’s Seahwaks training camps. She didn’t hide the outing and posted a picture of them at the practice to Instagram Tuesday. The image was liked more than 173,000 times by her 7.1 million followers.
