This Monday Angie Martinez posted an interview she did with Ciara as her guest star to promote her 7th studio album Beauty Marks. During the interview she discussed her love story on how she got her perfect husband Russell Wilson.
After her break-up with ex-fiance Future she said that she asked God for the exact man she wanted to be with, “I thought I was going to be single for four years, I had that in my mind,” said the 1-2 Step singer. “And I don’t know why that number was four years but I was really ready to take my time and be patient and let love really fall in place the right way. I desired something new, I desired something different, I desired to be loved [to] the highest capacity and to be loved the way that I deserved.”
Her prayer included specifics on what this man would be like and what she would like to gain from the relationship.“I prayed for a God-fearing man. I prayed for discernment. I prayed for wisdom, to really learn from the wisdom that I’m gaining from the experience that I’m going through,” she told Martinez. See the video here:
A love for kids was certainly on her list especially since she already had her son, Future. “I prayed for a man that loved kids, because, obviously me having my son, if you’re gonna love me you’ve gotta love him. I prayed for a man that was worldly as well. Because I love to explore. So someone that was gonna edify my world, that was important to me. I was ready to level up!”
The two have truly had an inspiring love story. In the interview she also spoke on the night that she met her husband at NBC’s I Can Do That wrap party. “I remember looking at my husband the first night we met — it’s like a movie — when we talk about our story back to each other, we both have the same feelings. … It was a calm feeling all over my body,” the singer explains. “I also remember looking at him and I thought he was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. And I couldn’t remember half of what he was saying … but when you know, you know. We say that and we also talk about being equally yoked. It’s just light. When it’s light, it’s right. It’s easy. Even in the toughest times.”

Talk of their relationship first began in April 2015 when the two attended the White House State Dinner together which was in honor of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie Abe.
What’s funny is that WIlson claimed Ciara before the two even met. In an interview with The Rock Church in July 2015 he admitted, “I told somebody that’s the girl I want to be with before I even met her. Before I met her, I was like, ‘I’m probably going to end up with Ciara.’” This is the same interview where Wilson revealed that two took a vow of celibacy until marriage.
The two married July 6, 2016 at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England and had their first child April 29, 2017.
