Happy wedding anniversary to Ciara and Russell Wilson. Exactly 365 days ago, the singer and the Seattle Seahawks quarterback said “I do” while in front of group of their closest family and friends.
From nuptials to the arrival of their first child together, the pair’s marriage has been a whirlwind. So here’s a look back over the couple’s first year as husband and wife.
March 2016: After just one year of dating, Wilson popped the question to his singer girlfriend during a lavish, private champagne dinner in Europe. Cici happily accepted. “God Is So Good! I’m So Grateful For You @DangRussWilson,” Ciara wrote on Instagram after saying ” I do.” She added, “You Are Truly Heaven Sent, and I’m Looking Forward To Spending Forever With You.”
July 6, 2016: This day, Ciara and Russell stood before their family and friends and exchanged vows. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson tied the knot inside the 48-room Peckforton Castle outside of Liverpool and was surrounded by their closest family and friends.
The singer rocked a stunning Roberto Cavalli dress, which one source revealed to Us Weekly was “custom-made Cavalli Couture” and was “composed of white tulle, fully embroidered with floral motifs throughout, and delicate glass beading, covered entirely with precious Chantilly lace appliqué.” Meanwhile, Wilson was dapper in a Giorgio Armani tuxedo.
Cici’s besties, Serena Williams, Lala and Kelly Rowland joined a handful of other women, including makeup artist, Yolonda Frederick, and stood by the singer’s side as bridesmaids.
July 7, 2016: The couple not only consecrated their marriage, but it also just so happened to be the first time together as a couple. The two took great pride in remaining celibate before walking down the aisle. In an Instagram video following the wedding, the newlyweds took to Snapchat to rave about their night of fun.
Posted on Snapchat, an excited mother can be seen asking her husband, “baby you know what we are doing tonight?” Wilson responded, “From what we did last night, I want to do it multiple times.”
The video, which is presumably about getting it on the night they said “I do,” later cuts to Russell saying with a big wink, “About last night.”
October 2016: Just three months after exchanging vows, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together. On her 31st birthday, Cici wrote on Instagram: “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.”
March 2017: Ciara and Russell came under fire for the pregnancy photos which many deemed simply “weird.” In a series of images taken for Harper’s Bazaar, a glowing Cici poses alongside her 2-year-old son, Future Jr., while beaming from ear to ear. But one snapshot shows a naked 7-month-pregnant singer, holding her naked son, while her shirtless husband, Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson, wraps his arms around them.
The images were clearly too much for the star who eventually deleted the image from social media.
April 28, 2017: On April 28, Ciara and Russell welcomed daughter Sienna Princess Wilson. Ci confirmed the big news with a sweet letter to her second child: “Dear Sienna Princess Wilson, No matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We Love You. Love, Mommy & Daddy. 7:03 pm. 7lbs 13 oz. 4.28.2017. Photo By Daddy.”
May 2017: Just one month after giving birth to a precious baby girl, the famous and very happy couple were slapped with negative comments following what was supposed to be a sweet Mother’s Day post by Wilson. “Nothing better than spending time with you. You are an amazing mom & I’m so grateful I get to spend the rest of my life with you & raising our kids. I love you! #HappyMothersDay Weekend my love,” he wrote.
Haters, however, were upset that Wilson used the word “our children.” Ciara shares a son with rapper, Future, whom Wilson treats as if it’s own son. But when Wilson referred to both children as “ours,” some folks used it as ammunition to fire shots at football player.
July 2017: Coming back full circle, now, one year later, their love is stronger than ever.
