On Saturday, Oct. 5, the husband and wife caught Game 2 in the MLB’s American League East playoffs as the New York Yankees took on the Minnesota Twins. Decked out in Yankees gear in Yankee Stadium this weekend, Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Wilson saw their team win 8-2 over the Twins.
“Yankee Days with my Baby @DangeRussWilson❤️” the “Set” singer captioned the post.
Soon, many fans began fawning over the apparent love between the spouses.
“He in love love”
“@ciara OMG CIARA!!! U are truly blessed! I love u guys bond! I only pray one day I can experience it! You guys are an inspiration 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 #TooGetherForever”
“Cutest genuine couple alert 🧡🙏🏻 @ciara @dangerusswilson”
“@dangerusswilson is a savage u guys are a power couple to the extreme”
Things took a turn, however, when fans began remarking on Russell’s hairdo: cornrows.
“No braids Russ, damn they got you! 🤦🏽♀️”
“Russ bro you waiting on the @theshaderoom to post you and those braids😂 but good win Thursday night 🙏🏽’
“Don’t you braid his hair again, CiCi. 🤣🤣 #couplegoals”
“I hate your hair braided! Let’s the curls flow!”
Still, many others gave the look praise.
“Ok Young Russ with the braids.”
“He better keep them braids n i know that’s right 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽”
“Ok @dangerusswilson look good with the braids in 😂💚👌🏿”
Back in April, Wilson shared footage of his singer wife braiding down his usually curly, long hair against his scalp.
“When you’re on Easter weekend and your wife’s braiding your hair,” Wilson says in the video as Ciara gripped her husband’s stretched out curls to style them into cornrows.
The reaction to the initial braiding was decidedly negative, with several people bashing Ciara’s efforts. Still, others applauded the apparent love between the spouses.
“Scruggle braids lol”
“The braids are gonna come apart in 5 mins”
“Black love is the best love 💕😩”
