Russell Wilson is in full-on dad mode when it comes to stepson Future, who just might follow in his stepdad’s footsteps.
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback shared a video of him tossing a football around with wife Ciara’s son.
“All hands, all hands,” Wilson says as Future effortlessly catches the ball the QB tosses toward him repeatedly. “Boom! All hands. … Good throw! All hands, all hands. Bang! All hands.”
The moment instantly had fans raving about Wilson’s relationship with the 6-year-old son of rapper Future. They also applauded the youngster’s hand-eye coordination.
“Father and son magic🙌🏾”
“WOW!!! Look at that swirl of the ball! Pro in the making”
“Russel’s such a good dad. I love how little Future looks up to him.”
They also began comparing Wilson’s parenting skills with those of Future, who recently defended himself against claims he’s running from paternal responsibilities in a song called “Last Name.”
“Future could never.”
“Meanwhile big future hiding from his kids 😂😂😂😂😂”
“That’s just how his daddy catch all these paternity cases 😩😩😂😂”
Future is currently embroiled in a paternity suit with Cindy Renae Parker, who filed paperwork against the MC in October. The Blast reported Thursday the proceedings are apparently on hold because she has been unsuccessful in serving him with papers to appear in court.
As fans engage in schadenfreude about Future, this is only the newest time that Wilson, who shares a 2-year-old daughter with Ciara, has put his stepdad parenting skills on display.
In another football moment last November, Wilson engaged in a postgame race against his stepson. Wilson ran against baby Future in the end zone, allowing the boy to win.
“Amazing Game! Now.. the Amazing Race! Proud of you @DangeRussWilson. My Boys. #FamilyFun ❤️,” Ciara eagerly captioned the footage she shared on her Instagram page at the time.
Earlier this year, Wilson opened up about life as a stepdad embracing his stepson as his own.
“Being a stepdad, you really find out what love’s like,” he told BuzzFeed’s “AM2DM.” “It’s interesting. It’s easy to love somebody that’s blood and everything else, but when you can love somebody just like it’s your own child and everything else, that’s what real love’s like.”
