Ciara and Russell Wilson are couples goals, right?! So what exactly led to their prefect romance?
When the couple first started dating, the lovebirds were candid about their decision to remain abstinent until exchanging vows before god.
The married couple, who is now expecting their first child together, waited to have sex until the actual consecration of their union — something that Ciara credits for their now incredibly strong friendship.
The beauty reveals to Cosmopolitan South Africa that “I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship—and once you know you’re really great friends and you’re what we call ‘equally yoked,’ where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone.”
Ciara tells the publication, “Knowing that you’ll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful.”
The glowing pregnant singer, who also shares a 3-year-old son with rapper Future, says that it was the Seattle Seahawks quarterback that first initiated the discussion about abstinence. “I have to give credit to my husband for sharing those views,” she says. “It’s awesome how it all worked out.”
The 31-year-old adds, “We women think with our hearts and with our minds. When we see a guy, we envision what he’s like and whether this could be something special. Guys see us from an exterior point of view—that’s something I learnt along the way as a woman.”
Is Hollywood Trying To Make Sterling K. Brown The New Denzel Washington?
Sir Sidney Poitier was a force to be reckoned with in the 60’s and 70’s. Denzel Washington came onto the scene in the late 80’s and instantly stole the hearts of women around the world. And we can’t forget about the Blair Underwoods, Morris Chestnuts and the Shemar Moores of the 90’s.
But while many of these men are still around knocking roles out of the ballpark, we can’t help but notice the push for one major newcomer: Sterling K. Brown.
Although having been in the business for some time, it was Brown’s portrayal of Christopher Darden in FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson that really stole the attention of audiences around the nation.
And if that wasn’t enough, Brown became one of the most idolized characters on NBC’s This Is Us, playing a successful Black man in a successful Black marriage, navigating his way though his relationships with siblings.
Now after picking up two Emmy Awards, there seems to be a big push in the media to make Brown the new universal “it” man. Sure he is the ultimate trifecta — ear to ear smile, impeccable acting chops and a banging body.
But there’s a very direct narrative being told. Is Sterling on his way to becoming Hollywood’s new beef cake? Is Hollywood setting the star up to have the same level of celebrity and placement in this bizarre hierarchy as the beloved Denzel?
On Monday, Brown even appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show for the first time somehow ended up with his shirt off.
Sure the popular daytime series had a “reason” behind having the actor ride a tractor without his shirt on … but this is clearly another way of reminding the world that the sex appeal is on point.
Needless to say, nobody will replace the many men who have led the way for stars before them. But there’s no doubt the industry is holding it’s arms wide open for Brown to come running in for the largest embrace of a lifetime.
