Ciara and Russell Wilson are getting comfortable with their public romance, so it’s no surprise both celebs are opening up more about their relationship in interviews.

Now that things are serious, Russell, a devout Christian, has convinced Ciara to commit to being abstinent.

The Washington Post writes:

“I ain’t gonna lie to y’all now, I need y’all to pray for us!” Wilson exclaimed during an interview with Pastor Miles McPherson of the Rock Church.

In a wide-ranging discussion with McPherson — who himself played in the NFL, as did his brother, Don — Wilson touched on his life story and his desire to continue playing baseball, as well as, of course, his faith. The quarterback spoke of how special Ciara was to him, then told a story about when he was backstage at one of her concert tour stops.

“It was about 15 minutes before she went onstage,” he told McPherson, “and she was sitting there, and God spoke to me. He said, ‘I need you to lead her.’ And I was like, ‘Really? Right now?’ … He goes, ‘No, I want you and need you to lead her.’ And so I told her, right then and there, ‘What would you do if we took all that extra stuff off the table?’ Just do it Jesus’s way.”

When McPherson asked Russell to “elaborate on what that means,” the quarterback said, “Yeah, we’re talking about s*x.”

“I knew that God had brought me into her life to bless her, and for her to bless me,” Russell continued, “and to bless so many people with the impact that she has, that I have. We’re not going to be perfect, by any means … but He’s anointed both of us. I know that He’s calling for us to do something miraculous, something special.

“And I told her — and she completely agreed — is the fact that, ‘Can we love each other without that?’ If you can really love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody.”


Check out the interview below. The Ciara talk begins at the 22:20 mark.


  1. He always has his hand on her a-s in pictures. It’s just a matter of time before gets weak and it happens. I bet he watches her Ride video once a day. Christian men be the biggest freaks.

  2. Ciara has really lucked up because Russell really cares about her you can tell just the way he talks about her. I just love the way he carries himself in a world full of male thots it’s so good to hear a young man have morals and values. Where are all the men like Russell at?

  3. This will be hard for both of them but it can be done. There are plenty of abstinent couples out here.

  4. I think he talks too much and needs to be quiet..everybody is talking about it…the info is nobody’s business….I would be very upset with him…he is gonna likely marry her sooner than later!

  5. Ciara really deserves this type of man. I actually prayed for them because I know temptation is a beast. This is what men should be about. Or at least wait a year. It wont kill ya..
