Inside Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Ciara's Relationship

The Seahawks quarterback opened up about abstaining while dating the singer.

The Romance and the Prediction

"I do have a girlfriend, yes," Wilson said, speaking to Pastor Miles McPherson for the church's show on Sunday. "She's a sweetheart."

Then, a picture of the two popped up on screen, as Wilson added, "Yeah, that's my girlfriend. ... she's everything you could ever want, honestly."

"I met her 5, 6 months ago," he said. "The funny thing is, I told somebody that's the girl I want to be with before I even met her."

Wilson actually predicted the two would be together.

"If there's a 10, she's a 15," he said about her.

The Relationship Now and Abstaining

Wilson, who passed up millions of dollars in high school to play baseball to go to college, is very passionate about his faith and admitted he and Ciara are abstaining for religious reasons. Wilson adds that Ciara, 29, is a believer and is religious, as well.

"She's been through some heartaches, I've been through some heartaches," he said. "I was married before. I married the person I was with in high school."

Ciara also has a son with her ex, rapper Future.

Even though his relationship didn't work out, Wilson had faith and after meeting Ciara, he said that while she was on tour, he was looking at her in the mirror and "God spoke to me, he said 'I need you to lead her.'"

"I was like, 'Really, right now?'" he said, adding that at the moment, he suggested they take "all that extra stuff" off the table. "We are talking about sex."

Wilson said Ciara agreed and "it's the fact that could we love each other without that?"

Wilson still joked, "I ain't going to lie to you all now, I need you all to pray for us," he said.

The Award Shows and the White House

Even though they hadn't gone public yet, Wilson also posted a picture of the couple dressed to the nines for dinner at the White House. That's as official as it gets.

Giving Back

Wilson is known for visiting the local children's hospital and just over a month ago, he brought Ciara to raise some spirits and share the love.

"We are #StrongAgainstCancer," he wrote last month.
