Ciara and Russell Wilson shared personal throwback photos from their days in high school, proving their relationship cuteness factor would have stood the test of time had they met about 15 years earlier.
During a time when most of us were just trying not to look awkward, the Wilsons, who wed in 2016, were both as attractive as any teen in a CW series. This is apparent from old images of Russell and Cici that they both shared on Instagram on Saturday, May 23.
The Riverdale High School graduate posted images of her and her Seattle Seahawks hubby, then Collegiate School quarterback, in their respective high school cheerleading and football uniforms. “@DangeRussWilson… speaking of High School…🥰😝🥰,” captioned the “Promise” singer.
Russell shared his own side-by-side images the same day and showed a little bit of his “dangeruss” side, hinting that their family would probably be even bigger, had they met sooner in life. “#SituationSaturdays … If only we knew each other in high school…How many more chilren would we have? @Ciara 😍😜”
Ciara peeped the his comment and kept her reply cute. “Oh how I wish 🥰…On the babies part.. The Good Lord knew what he was doing. 🤣🤣🥰,” she joked.
Fans gushed over the pics of the two, who they definitely could have seen ruling the school back in the day.
“y’all would’ve been high school sweethearts🥰,” wrote one follower.
“#ImagineThat Would’ve been Prom King and Queen. 😍💛,” another commented.
“YALL STOP BEING SO CUTE😭❤️,” remarked a third.
“y’all have been killing the game since high school,” complimented a fourth.
“But y’all met JUST when you BOTH needed to … the way God intended ❤️,” a fifth fan told the pair.
The Wilsons are showing that they’re in it for the long haul and because of the way they love each other they’ve earned spots on plenty of #CoupleGoals lists. Throughout the relationship, both revealed that they prayed for specific qualities in a significant other and received them all plus more.
“I prayed for a God-fearing man. I prayed for discernment. I prayed for wisdom, to really learn from the wisdom that I’ve gained from the experience that I’m going through,” Ciara told Angie Martinez during an interview. “I prayed for a man that loved kids, because, obviously me having my son, if you’re gonna love me you’ve gotta love him. I prayed for a man that was worldly as well. Because I love to explore so someone that was gonna edify my world, that was important to me. I was ready to level up!”
This spring, Russell revealed his list during an Instagram Live chat with La La Anthony. He said he asked for a woman of faith, who is faithful and independent, one who could love him the same way his mother loved his father and would tilt the room.
