On Thursday, Oct. 26, the “Level Up” songstress shared a video on her Instagram that showed the NFL star wining and dining her at a rented-out Waffle House. It can cost a minimum of $90 to rent out the restaurant.

“Oh my God, babe!” Ciara can be heard saying, “This is like next level. This is like top, top! My honey knows how much I love Waffle House. He rented out the whole Waffle House and I am the happiest girl in the world.”

She continued, expressing, “This is crazy,” while Wilson walked toward the camera. The rest of her video featured Cici’s adorable reaction as she entered the popular breakfast joint, snapshots of their food, and more PDA-filled photos of the Wilsons together. 

Elsewhere in the recording, Ciara described the Denver Broncos quarterback’s gift as “One of the most epic things that you’ve ever done.” Wilson then could be heard saying that he had a feeling Ciara’s “pregnant belly” was craving “some waffles and eggs.” 

Before her video cut out, a large pile of birthday doughnuts could be seen making its way over to Ciara while those around her sang “Happy Birthday.” 

“Waffle & a Date…You know my heart Baby! I love you so much @DangerRussWilson #WaffleHouse #BDAY,” her caption read. 

Ciara’s comments section swelled with expressions from individuals who decided to bring up a current debate surrounding inappropriate first-date ideas. One comment read, “Y’all better throw that whole d–n first date list away floating around . Ciara and Russell have no problem with the Waffle House.” 

Another person wrote, “Now y’all won’t mind that date at Cheesecake Factory It’s all about doing what the person you are interested in, is interested in. Stop generalizing everything! Whew! Love this!” One more comment read, “And y’all pressed about Cheesecake Factory!!!”

Over the past few weeks, there has been a constant debate about what’s an appropriate spot to take a first date. The online hot topic stemmed from a woman on TikTok refusing to exit her vehicle because her date pulled up to The Cheesecake Factory. 

Her controversial behavior prompted an internet user to jot down all of the unacceptable first-date ideas for outings, with Waffle House sitting at number 27.  

While the popular breakfast eatery might not be looked at as a desirable place to enjoy a first date for some, Ciara revealed she has a history of renting out restaurants that serve “good food.” During a recent interview with The Shade Room, the Texas-born singer said she could eat at Waffle House for the rest of her life, if need be. 

“I do love a chicken melt with onion from Waffle House,” the soon-to-be mother of four said. “It’s so good.”

The couple recently revealed that they are expecting their third child together. The Grammy winner also has an older son from her previous relationship with ex-fiancé and rapper Future.
