Their relationship has caused girls all over social media to ask Ciara what exactly she prayed for in order to land such a devoted man.
Ciara and Wilson’s relationship
Ciara hasn’t had the easiest time when it comes to love. Just a few years ago, she thought that she would be spending the rest of her life with rapper Future. The two were engaged and even have a son together. But their engagement didn’t last long after a slew of cheating rumors came in between the couple.
Ciara and Wilson then began dating in 2015. The two chose not to have sex before they were married.
“I have to give credit to my husband for sharing those views. It’s awesome how it all worked out,” she told Cosmopolitan South Africa in 2017 of why they chose to be celibate. “I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship—and once you know you’re really great friends and you’re what we call ‘equally yoked,’ where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone. Knowing that you’ll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful.”
The couple was married in 2016 at Peckforton Castle in Chesire, England.
How do Ciara and Russell Wilson keep their marriage afloat?
Since the two have said “I do,” people have been wondering how they keep their love alive.
“I think the most important thing is, first of all, just loving one another, you know? For love, you’ll do anything and you take care of one another,” Wilson told Entertainment Tonight at this year’s Espy Awards. “And also communication.”
“There’s always a lot of highs, and there are lows, and everything else, but communication is everything,” he continued. “And I think when you’re able to do that and take care of your kids, it’s a lot of fun.”
Does the couple want any more kids?
In April of 2017, Wilson and Ciara welcomed their daughter, Sienna Princess, into the world.
But two kids aren’t enough for the couple.
“I love being a mom,” Ciara told the outlet. “It is by far the coolest job in life, and I do look forward to having more of those sweet little angels. And it’ll happen at the perfect time.”
“I’m enjoying dancing with my flat belly right now,” she added.
How did they celebrate their anniversary?
Ciara and Wilson are both extremely busy people, so while they didn’t get to go all out for their anniversary, it was still special.
“It was a really good time, it was very relaxing,” Ciara said of their anniversary evening. “We didn’t have a long time, but it was very sweet. And I think, more than anything, [the best part was] just recognizing, ‘Wow, we’re three years into this thing.'”
