Russell Wilson Proposed To Ciara, And The Internet Had Some Fun With Their Engagement

For better or for worse, the romantic relationship between Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and singer Ciara has commanded plenty of headlines since the two started dating back in April of last year. Those headlines won’t be going away anytime soon, as the couple announced on Friday that they’re engaged to be married.


Playing a game of “travel roulette,” Wilson gave his future wife 30 possible destinations in the world to guess where she was headed. “She was shocked when they landed in the Seychelles at the exclusive resort North Island,” adds her rep.

“The biggest surprise was that Russell proposed to his new fiancé at the romantic private “Honeymoon Beach” located on North Island,” says the singer’s rep.

“She said Yes!!! Since Day 1 knew you were the one. No Greater feeling… #TrueLove @Ciara,” Wilson gushed on Instagram about the proposal.

I’m sure you’ll be shocked to hear that news of the engagement was greeted by plenty of wisecracks and amusing reactions on Twitter.

The couple has been very public about their “waiting until marriage” abstinence pact, so the ring prompted plenty of predictable jokes about the all the sex they’ll presumably be having at some point in the near future.

Plenty of people were quick to bring up Ciara’s ex-boyfriend Future — the rapper with whom she has a son — and they didn’t pull any punches.
