Daddy duties are in full effect for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson with his team out of the NFL playoffs. The 32-year-old enjoyed the weekend with his 5-month-old son Win Wilson, his and Ciara’s youngest child.
“Even though we don’t get to play today… We always Winnin’! 🙏🏾” Wilson captioned the post that garnered over 400,000 likes.
Fans couldn’t help but gush over Wilson posing with Win as he sat in a high chair on a beach.
“Always. My Boys. I love you guys so much 🥰,” the singer commented on her husband’s post.
Fans also were enthralled with the post.
“This is adorable ♥️ Win is a cutie pie!”
“I JUST LOVE THIS PICTURE…THEIR SMILES ARE SO GENUINE…PRICELESS!!! CONTINUED BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR LIVELY FAMILY, SIR!!!! THANK YOU FOR SHARING SOMETHING SO PRECIOUS!!!!”
“🙏🏽 Life is bigger than football. Always appreciate your perspective, and your family is a reflection of your greatness. Keep going! ❤️.”
“Winning and twinning!”
“Such a cute baby 😇.”
When Wilson isn’t playing on the football field, fans can catch him playing with his kids. On Jan. 12, the family man uploaded a video to his Instagram Story of his stepson Future Zahir Wilburn, 6, and his daughter Sienna Wilson, 3, sitting on him while he was lying down.
“I’ve got a ‘SIFU’ sandwich yall. A Sienna, Future sandwich,” said Wilson. Future then asks Wilson, “Daddy, you out cold? You breathing.”
Wilson responded to Future, “I’m breathing.”
Ciara can be heard laughing in the background as she records the video. Wilson then tells the kids, “I love you, guys.”
The blended family of five seems exceptionally close, and Wilson loves his children. However, he wasn’t always as kind and loving as he appears today. The Cincinnati native admitted in a 2014 article for The Players Tribune that he was a bully during his elementary and middle school years.
“Many of you readers probably think I have been Mr. Goody Two-Shoes my whole life, but honestly, I was a bully growing up,” he wrote. “In elementary and middle school, I threw kids against the wall. I rubbed their heads in the dirt at recess. I bit them. I even knocked teeth out.”
“I had a lot of anger that I didn’t know what to do with. Thankfully, I was saved by my faith when I was 14 years old and was able to start living for others instead of just myself. But if you’ve ever been at the bottom of a pile with me, you know that I still have a bit of that bully deep down inside — just ask DeMarcus Ware — and I work hard to keep it there.”
The same year, Wilson launched his Pass the Peace initiative fighting against domestic violence. It looks as though Wilson turned over a new leaf in his life and continues to grow from his past.
