Ciara Posts Sweet Anniversary Tribute to Husband Russell Wilson

The superstar couple has been married for six years.

Ciara and Russell Wilson’s love story grows with every year. The pair met at an NCAA tournament game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 26, 2015 (North Carolina was playing Wisconsin, where Wilson finished up his college career). A whisper and a flirt later, Wilson asked Ciara out to dinner, even though he had other plans. "I completely forgot about the 10:30 [p.m.] dinner," he recalled on Instagram Live. "Next thing I knew, it was 12:00 [a.m.], 12:30 [a.m.], and I was sold on you."

Nearly a year after meeting, while on vacation in the Seychelles, the couple was engaged. On March 11, 2016, in an IG post, Wilson shared the news gushing, “She said Yes!!! Since Day 1 I knew you were the one. No Greater feeling... #TrueLove @Ciara”.

Then Ciara and Wilson secretly married four months later, on July 6, at​ Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. “We are The Wilsons!” Ciara shared.
