About Russell Wilson
Wilson played college football for the University of Wisconsin during the 2011 season. He has also played football and baseball for North Carolina State University from 2008 to 2010 before transferring to Wisconsin.
His story with Seattle Seahawks began when he got selected with the 12th pick in the third round (75th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. Wilson has won more games than any other NFL quarterback in his first four seasons. Impressive right? He is currently the second highest rated NFL passer of all time.
Prior to being married to Ciara, he was married to Ashton Meem. The marriage lasted only for two years and Russell and Ashton got divorced. Let’s talk about his Ciara now.
Ciara’s full name is Ciara Princess Wilson. She was born on October 25, 1985 and is the only child of Jackie Harris and Carlton Harris. An army brat, she grew up in Germany, New York, Utah, California, Arizona and Nevada. Her name came from the Revlon fragrance “Ciara” which was introduced in 1973 and is still sold today. Interesting!
We don’t need to introduce her as she is a famous American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, actress and fashion model.
Ciara was born in Austin, Texas. During most her childhood, she was traveling around the globe. She settled in Atlanta, Georgia for some time. She joined a girl group Hearsay, but the group got disbanded shortly. It was at this time Ciara was noticed for her songwriting. Ciara got her major break in 2002 when she met music producer Jazze Pha. With his help, she signed a record deal with LaFace Records.
Her albums and music
Ciara released her debut studio album Goodies in 2004. The album was know for three hit singles, “Goodies”, “1, 2 Step”, and “Oh”. The album was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and earned her four nominations at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards.
Her third studio album, Fantasy Ride, released in 2009, was considerably less successful than her first two albums. However, it produced the international top-ten single “Love Sex Magic” featuring Justin Timberlake, which earned her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. That’s something!
Not just singing and songwriting Ciara has also tried her hands on acting. She made her film debut it All You’ve Got, followed by Mama, I Want to Sing! (2012) and That’s My Boy (2012). She also landed a role in the TV Series, The Game.

The couple started dating each other in early 2015. After dating for almost an year, they announced their engagement on March 11, 2016. They finally rang the wedding bells on July 6, 2016 at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
Another fact about Ciara. She also has a son named Future Zahir Wilburn from a previous relationship with rapper Future. Future and Ciara got engageg in October 2013, but called off the engagement in August 2014. Well, everyone has a past, both Russell and Ciara in this case.
