Ciara and Russell Wilson have been married since July 2016, and in April 2017, welcomed their first daughter, Sienna Princess.Recently, Ciara gave the world a closer look at their wedding and the birth of little Sienna in her new music video for “Beauty Marks.
Just last week, she appeared on The View to discuss her latest album, Beauty Marks, and to release the music video for the single of the same name. In it, you’ll find beautiful imagery of her wedding to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and of the birth of their 2-year-old daughter, Sienna Princess.
Ciara began dating rapper Future in 2013 and the pair were engaged shortly thereafter. In January 2014, during a visit to The View, Ciara confirmed the news that she was pregnant with her first son, Future Zahir Wilburn, who was born four months later.
But soon after, rumors began swirling that Future was cheating on Ciara, and the engagement was called off in August 2014. Since, Ciara, Future, and Wilson—who divorced Ashton Meem in 2014—have butt heads over raising little Future Zahir—though the dust seems to have settled.
“I told somebody that’s the girl I want to be with before I even met her,” Wilson said during a July 2015 interview with The Rock Church in San Diego.
“Before I met her, I was like, ‘I’m probably going to end up with Ciara.’” It was also during this interview that Wilson revealed that the pair, both devout Christians, had taken a vow of celibacy until they were married.

“You get to hug and you get to have a nice good kiss, but you have to be careful not to go too far so you don’t end up in the place you’re trying to avoid being in,” Ciara told Cosmopolitan when asked about the perimeters of their celibacy.
“Strong, strong, strong, strong! Just the strongest resistance to temptation.”
It’s unclear how the couple first met, though it was reported by US Weekly that two weeks before the dinner, the pair were first spotted together at NBC’s I Can Do That wrap party, where, according to a source, “they were cozy in a booth together at the party.
During a vacation in the Seychelles in March 2016, the pair became engaged after Wilson proposed with a 16-carat ring.
Four months later, on July 6, 2016, they tied the knot at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England in front of 100 family members and friends, including bridesmaids La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland, and Serena Williams.

Three months after their nuptials, Ciara announced via Instagram that she was pregnant with the pair’s first child, writing, “On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family.
. and I’m excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give.

“More than anything, when you have your own family and it continues to grow, it’s a special thing,” Wilson told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 2017. “I’m truly grateful every day to get to come home and it puts a smile on my face every time.
Naturally, Ciara has since spoken about how Wilson has organically taken to fatherhood. “He’s been such an incredible father since day one,” she told E! News in 2018.

“I watch you put everything on the line every Sunday in pure amazement,” Ciara wrote in an Instagram caption to celebrate the news. “Your dedication, consistency, and commitment to the game never wavers.
You’re always the first person in, and the last person out. You’re 1 of 1.
The hardest working man I know! So proud of you baby! Giving God All the praise.”
Shortly after, the couple announced the formation of Why Not You Productions, a new company that will focus on the creation of scripted and unscripted projects for film, television and digital, with the intention of “inspiring and aspiring narratives and human interest stories,” per the announcement.
“While we work in different fields in our day-to-day, we are excited to come together to collaborate and create stories that we hope will touch people’s lives,” Wilson and Ciara said in a joint statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “We are both storytellers at heart and we want to be able to share stories that uplift people and inspire others to create positive change.
That’s ultimately what we want this company to represent.”
Through the storm, it seems Ciara found her way to the sunshine.
“You know my husband’s pretty awesome and you know it’s been an incredible journey,” Ciara told Access Hollywood at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in May. “Time goes by so fast and we’ve been having the time of our lives.
We call it organized chaos because obviously with him doing football and me doing music, the worlds are both moving fast and kinda like in two different directions, but sometimes parallel at the same time.”
