Congratulations to the happy couple! Russell Wilson and Ciara recently celebrated their four-year wedding anniversary. On Monday, July 6, the popstar shared a heartwarming video on Instagram alongside her NFL husband to mark the occasion.
In the video, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback can be seen hugging Ciara from behind and kissing her on her cheek. “Too many sweet moments to chose from..So I closed my eyes and this was the one my hand landed on 🥰,” she wrote. “I don’t know where to start, but I know where I am.. it’s the Best Place. My safest place. Simply being in your arms. These 4 years of marriage have been full of unconditional love. My heart is full! My heart cup runs over. I feel like a little kid, excited for each day with you!:).”
The 34-year-old Texas native concluded her message by praising God for their union and expressing her love to her husband. “I thank God for how he’s blessed us and placed you in my life everyday! I love you soooo much! Happy 4 years to US. It’s our #Anniversary 🎧.”
Shortly after Ciara’s post, Russell shared a similar video on Instagram that showed him kissing Ciara on a boat. Russell expressed his love to the superstar in a lengthy caption.
Russell and Ciara met through a mutual friend in 2015 and tied the knot the following year. They are parents to 3-year-old Sienna Princess Wilson and are expecting a baby boy in August. Ciara was previously engaged to rapper Future prior to meeting Russell.
Ciara and the “Life Is Good” artist started dating in 2013, and the former pair got engaged shortly after in October 2013. They called their relationship quits three months after their son Future Zahir Wilburn was born in 2014. The “Level Up” singer implied in a 2019 interview with American drag queen RuPaul that she was not expecting to be a single mother following her breakup with Future and explained that she cried a lot before meeting her husband.
“Before I met my husband, I went through one of the most challenging phases of my life,” she said. “I was a single mom, and I had never been in that place before. That really made me stop and take a look back on the journey, and I was like, ‘Okay, I’ve gotta change something up here.’ ”
Ciara expressed the idea that she prayed for a happy and healthy marriage. “I’d be very specific about what I was hoping for in my life as it related to love and also just me, my own growth. I was ready to level up in general, just in life in general, period. I was wanting a lot more from myself, and so I definitely would pray a lot. I would cry a lot, and then I would pray a lot, and God is good!”
