Russell Wilson and Ciara have been happily married for nearly six years, but how did their love story begin?
The new quarterback for the Denver Broncos revealed the pickup line he used on his now-wife that made her go on a date with him.
During an interview with Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Radio on SiriusXM, Wilson explained that he had a wallet that was “broke down” and torn up. On the first day they met, after talking for two-and-a-half hours, Ciara couldn’t help but notice.
“That wallet, you losing with that,” she told him.
But Russell won her over with his response. “First of all with me, you’re never losing,” he recalled telling the “Goodies” singer. “Second of all, that wallet, that shows consistency. That’s what you gon’ get from me. You gon’ get somebody who’s gonna be consistent for you every day.”
And he lived up to his promise. The couple, who married in 2016, share two children: daughter Sienna, 5, and son Win, who turns 2 in July. Russell also has a stepson from Ciara’s relationship with Future.
“I feel like, if I could look back in a crystal ball when I was a little girl, and I looked at the idea of my family and what it would be for me, it’s exactly this,” Ciara told GQ last year.
They both play different roles in their relationship. “Ciara, she’s an entertainer. She runs the show. She is the show,” said Wilson, while Ciara added, “I really love letting him lead, as the man of the house.”
Following Wilson’s latest interview, Plies took to Twitter to praise the NFL star. “What’s Crazy To Me Ain’t NEVER Seen Russell Wilson Hate On Nobody!” the rapper tweeted. “Bruh Make His Money, Take Care Of His Family & Mind His Business. It Don’t Get No Realer Than That!!!”
