Russell Wilson and his daughter, Sienna Wilson, are spending some daddy-daughter quality time together. On March 2, he uploaded a beautiful close-up photo showing him holding his daughter in the water smiling and looking down at her while she smiled looking up at him.
Wilson captioned the black-and-white photo “My baby girl,” along with a red heart emoji at the end. The post received over 300,000 likes and over 2,000 comments.
Fans’ hearts melted over the sweet moment. One person said, “My heart is exploding. You guys are twins.” Someone else wrote, “Nothing like that girl and daddy time.”
Another person seemed to think Sienna looked like someone else besides Wilson. That person said, “So sweet and beautiful! She looks like your sister,” referring to Anna Wilson, who is a basketball player on the Stanford Cardinals Women’s basketball team.
Although Wilson received a few more comments that related to his photo, he was bombarded with more comments from sports fans telling him “Please don’t leave Seattle.”
Some even included his daughter in on the request. One person joked, “I want Russ to look at the Seahawks the way he looks at his kid.”
After starting off the season on a high note by winning their first six games and ending it with a loss to the Los Angeles Rams, rumors about Wilson potentially leaving the Seattle Seahawks have run rampant. He has expressed disappointment over being sacked, he said, nearly 400 times over his nine seasons in the NFL. He’s even said that there needs to be some improvement in the team’s offense.
He also mentioned potentially wanting to be involved in “personnel decisions.” On “The Dan Patrick Show,” he said at the 1:33 mark of the interview, “I think it helps to be involved more. But I think that dialogue should happen more often in my opinion.”
