All About Russell Wilson’s Wife
Ciara, full name Ciara Princess Harris, grew up in Texas. She started her singing career as part of the musical group Hearsay before branching off to pursue a solo career.
Her first single, “Goodies,” off of her debut album of the same name skyrocketed her to #1 on the singles charts in both the U.S. and the U.K.
She followed “Goodies” up with popular singles like “1, 2 Step” and “Oh,” both of which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. Her “Goodies” album went triple platinum with at least 3 million in sales.
Her second album, “Ciara: The Evolution,” also reached #1 on the charts in the U.S. and also reached platinum status.
After her second album, Ciara’s music experienced a downturn in popularity. Her follow-up albums “Fantasy Ride” and “Basic Instinct” were mostly poorly received by critics and fans alike.
Her latest album, “Beauty Marks,” also brought in low sales numbers despite the energetic single “Level Up.” This album was Ciara’s first album since signing with Warner Bros. and starting her own company, Beauty Marks Entertainment.
As for her personal life, Ciara was first engaged to rapper Future. The former couple share a son together, Future Zahir Wilburn. They dated for about two years. In that time, they got engaged, welcomed their son, and called off their engagement.
Ciara and Future then spent the next couple of years battling for custody of their son in court.
After breaking up with Future in 2014, Ciara then met Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in early 2015.
Russel Wilson and His Wife Ciara
From the get-go, this couple caught the public’s attention.
Russell had previously been married to his high school sweetheart. After only two years of marriage, and no children, Russell and his wife, Ashton Meem, filed for divorce.
Russell Wilson and Ciara wed in 2016 and have been together since. They share a total of three children, two of which they had together.
The Russell Wilson net worth alone is impressive as he is one of the top-paid players in the NFL. His net worth is an estimated 350 million. Ciara also brings in her own sum of money through music, appearances, and endorsement or modeling deals.
Russell Wilson And His Wife Promote Their Abstinence
One of the first stories to make the public raise their eyebrows was when the couple spoke publicly about abstaining from sex before marriage.
The decision was Russell’s idea that he made on religious-based beliefs. Ciara agreed and the two have openly spoken on the issue of forming a solid, sexless friendship before marriage.
Ciara Sparking Trade Rumors?
The two have also made headlines due to their involvement in Russell’s career.
Recently Russell expressed concern over playing in the NFL games amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and Ciara’s last pregnancy.
Although Russell has a no-trade clause in his current NFL contract, there are still plenty of rumors swirling about several teams eyeing the quarterback. And with skills like Russell’s, can you blame them?
Many see the fact that Ciara is a pop star who would no doubt want to live near a major city as a factor Russell would probably consider if he were to switch teams.
Russell’s agent has stated in the past that he’d only accept a trade to the Raiders, Saints, Cowboys, or Bears. Those would be located in the cities of Las Vegas, New Orleans, Dallas, and Chicago, all major cities.
Working Around Two Careers
Despite certain controversies, the couple continues to move forward and welcomed their second child in 2020.
Russell currently has no solid plans to trade teams, although rumors continue to swirl around the subject. He continues to contribute to his team and the NFL, recently even voicing an idea on how to eliminate ties in NFL games.
Recently the NFL star was also ranked number 4 in the Around the NFL quarterback week 3 index.
Ciara recently launched her new clothing line LITA which the singer says was inspired by love. The line’s theme is “love is the answer.” It’s meant to help women from every walk of life create looks for all the moments in their lives.
Russell even had a hand in coming up with a menswear line for Ciara’s fashion label. The quarterback’s fashion brainchild was the Good Man Brand, a line for men who can do business meetings all day and then want to switch to athleisure wear after.
The singer also recently turned heads at the 2021 Met Gala. At the event, she wore a dress inspired by her athlete husband.
The theme was “In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion.” She embraced it by wearing a long green, backless dress with the number 3 emblazoned on it to represent Russell’s jersey.
The glittery number certainly symbolized America’s love of football.
