Russell Wilson is the CUTEST!
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback may have married Ciara on Wednesday, but he’s gonna keep gushing about it!
“I’ll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle. I had so many [thoughts], but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train … and to realize I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills,” the star said Monday at rehearsal for the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards, which he’s co-hosting for the second year in a row.
The athlete also revealed he’s always known they had a future together (but you know, not THAT kind of Future):
“Ever since the first day I met her, she’s always been, honestly, my best friend. We’ve been so close,” he says.
While the wedding itself was “low-key and private,” the couples’ wedding planner, Mindy Weiss, knew how to keep the guests grooving until late into the night: EARTH WIND AND FIRE.
“To listen to Earth, Wind & Fire – the best band in the land – perform for so long and entertain for us and all night long basically until the sun came up was really, really cool,” says Wilson.
And while he doesn’t have any children of his own just yet, Wilson loves Ciara’s 2-year-old son, Future Zahir:
“I think ultimately, the one thing I can say about being a step-dad and any person that’s a parent – but especially when you come into a new situation – the key is loving the child as your own,” Wilson says. “That’s the biggest thing.”
And with those genes, you know that couple’s gotta have more siblings:
“I want to have a bunch of kids – me and Ci do,” he said, laughing. “I think that ever since the first day I ever met Ciara and Little Man, too, it’s been really cool and really special.”
Adds the star: “Ciara’s such a great mom. She reads to him every night. I read to him too, and we just share so many special moments together. That’s what family is all about. Ultimately, it’s about giving back and loving as much as you can to your fullest. That’s what you’re able to do together.”
IS THIS NOT THE MOST PRECIOUS THING YOU’VE EVER HEARD?! I love Russell and Ciara together. I just worry for them sometimes in light of what a crazy person Future is.
