#Blessed. Russell Wilson took to Instagram on Tuesday, October 25, to share his excitement over wife Ciara’s pregnancy announcement. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback, 27, posted two spiritually charged messages to celebrate impending parenthood.
“The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful,” the devout Christian and NFL star captioned a black-and-white photo of himself caressing Ciara’s tiny baby bump. “#BabyWilsonOntheWay.”
Hours later, Wilson tweeted a poignant and relevant Bible verse. “'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart...’ Jeremiah 1:5 NIV,” he wrote to his 2.32 million followers.
As previously reported, the “I Bet” singer announced her and Wilson’s thrilling baby news via Instagram on Tuesday, which also happened to be her 31st birthday.
“On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family..,” she captioned the same sweet snap that her husband posted, “and I'm excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give... 👶🏽🍼💃🏽☺️❤️.”
CiCi — who tied the knot with Wilson during a romantic July 6 ceremony in Cheshire, England — first sparked pregnancy rumors earlier this month when she was spotted stepping out in an array of loose-fitting ensembles.
The R&B princess is already mom of son Future Jr., 2, who she shares with ex-fiancé and rapper Future. This will be the first child for Wilson.
