It's official! After countless engagement rumors swirling for months on end, Ciara and Russell Wilson have finally taken the next step in their relationship — they're engaged! This gorgeous pair took their engagement announcement into their own hands by posting the exciting news via Instagram — like so many celebs do nowadays! — with a video showcasing Ciara's gigantic engagement ring. And, may we just say, we're temporarily blinded.
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback shared a selfie-style video (below) of his new fiancé wearing a huge, and we mean HUGE, sparkling diamond ring. "She said yes! Yeah!" he says in the video. "Making this thing happen. My baby." The bride-to-be weighs in with her sentiments, too. "Yay! I'm so excited," Ciara adds. "God is so good."
In addition to their emotion video, Wilson penned a heartfelt caption to accompany his adorable Instagram. "She said Yes!!! Since Day 1 I knew you were the one," he wrote, tagging Ciara. "No Greater feeling... #TrueLove"
Just last month Ciara was setting the record straight, making it clear that the pair was not engaged... yet. When E! News asked about Wilson's recent social media post wherein he declared his pop star sweetheart "The One," Ciara coolly responded, "Congratulations on good love?" She then held up her bling-less hand, for proof of her still-single status.
A walk down the aisle isn't the only thing Ciara is very patiently waiting for. The couple claims to be currently celibate and are waiting until marriage to have sex.
We've all seen Ciara in a wedding dress before (she was a former BRIDES covergirl, after all!), so we know the girl glows all decked out in lace and tulle. (No surprise there...) And since she was just so darn gorgeous, we can't wait to see Ciara wear a wedding dress once again to walk down the aisle with her new fiancé!
Back in 2014, during her engagement to hip-hop artist Future, Ciara graced the cover of our August/September issue, dropping jaws in a long-sleeve embroidered Chantilly lace Reem Acra gown. The illusion neckline! Those lacey sleeves! We're still not over that chic, classic bridal look. And although they didn't make it to the altar, it's clear that the versatile singer owns the aisle just as well as the stage.
