Consistently making headlines with her personal life, pop singer Ciara is now the proud bride-to-be of NFL superstar Russell Wilson. This relationship has been under the media’s microscope since its beginning and the couple has shared some precious moments over the past few months, but they have also been hit with a lot of skepticism from fans and former lovers.
In spite of the parental and legal drama, as well as speculated publicity stunts, Russell Wilson kept his eye on his prize and took Ciara off the coast of East Africa where he surprised her with a beautiful diamond engagement ring and that forever cherished question, “Will you marry me?” Since announcing their engagement, they’ve been all over social media declaring their love. Check out Ciara’s Instagram video.
The couple has been dating for almost a year and set boundaries early in their relationship, including the decision to remain abstinent until they’re married. Last summer, the blushing bride-to-be shared with Access Hollywood her feelings about practicing a new way of dating. “It’s cool when you get to build a foundation with someone on how much you care for each other and really know each others’ personalities, so it’s really fun.” The couple has received many well wishes, including from the super star athlete’s big brother.
So, is Ciara like most women who have had their special day planned since her youth or will this be a never before imaged event she and hubby will stir up together? Will it be a summer wedding (cause that abstinence thing may be getting really tough now) or will he wait a little longer for winter white? No doubt that the couple will let us know very soon.
EGL sends our well-wishes to the couple and their new family. We hope this will be another beautiful example of what commitment, black love and blended families can truly be- happy.
