The Little Girl Who Asked Russell Wilson To Be Her Godfather Has Passed Away

Tragically, the little girl who asked Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to be her Godfather passed away, according to a post on Wilson’s Twitter account. On Tuesday, Wilson, who was visiting Seattle Children’s Hospital, posted an Instagram photo with him and a little girl named Ailynn. Per Wilson, Ailynn asked Wilson to be her Godfather, which he accepted. The relationship, while beautiful, was sadly short-lived. On Wednesday, Wilson posted a tweet that Ailynn had passed away:

Wilson’s message on Instagram stated: My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to my goddaughter, Ailynn, and her family, as she is now with our Heavenly Father. I know you’ll be swinging your 12 flag over Centurylink this Sunday sweetie.

Wilson’s been in the limelight a lot lately and not always for the best reasons. The Seahawks are 0-2 and on the receiving end of social media rants from angry parents, of all people. Wilson personally has received a lot of attention (and criticism) for his relationship with Ciara. But Wilson has done a lot of great things with his time, too. For one little girl, that meant making her happy in her final days.
