Seattle Seahawk's quarterback Russel Wilson and his wife Ciara announced that they will be having a baby! The celebrity couple, married in July of this year, made headlines in 2015 announcing their decision to commit to abstinence-until-marriage.
In an interview with The Rock Church Russel explained that he had felt the need to be a leader while dating Ciara. In the early stage of dating he confronted her on waiting to have sex until they were married.
"I'll never forget: She was on tour. She was traveling, and I was looking at her in the mirror. I was sitting in the dressing room, and she was getting ready to go about 15 minutes before she went on stage, and she was sitting there, and God spoke to me and said, 'I need you to lead her.' And I was like, 'Really? Right now?'"
He goes, 'I want you and need you to lead her,'" Russel said. "And so anyways I told her right then and there, what would you do if we took all that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus' way?"
Russel said he was talking specifically about waiting to have sex until they were married.
He asked to Ciara, and she completely agreed: "Could we love each other without that?' If you can really love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody."
"For me, I knew that God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me and to bless so many people with the impact that she has, that I have. We're not gonna be perfect, by any means. Life's not perfect. Nobody's perfect, but he's anointed both of us, and I know that he's calling for us to do something miraculous, something special," said Russel.
