Touchdown! Ciara and Russell Wilson Are Married


Getty Images via ABCIt’s official — Ciara and Russell Wilson are married. 

The singer and the NFL quarterback tied the knot in the U.K. on Thursday afternoon, a rep for Ciara confirmed to ABC News.   According to E!, the wedding took place at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.

The happy couple both posted the same wedding photo on Instagram: she’s wearing a veil, a long gown with a lace-up front and long lace sleeves and carrying a bouquet of white flowers. He’s wearing a black tux with a morning coat and white tie.  “We are the Wilsons!” reads the caption.  According to E!, the blushing bride’s dress was designed by Peter Dundas, creative director for Roberto Cavalli.

The Grammy winner, 30, and the one-time Super Bowl champion, 27, were first linked last year and announced their engagement this past March. Last year, Wilson revealed that the two had decided to remain abstinent until marriage because of their religious beliefs. 

“She been through some heartaches, I’ve been through some heartaches,” he said in an interview with San Diego’s Rock Church. “[But] I ain’t going to lie to you all now, I need you all to pray for us!” 

This is the first marriage for Ciara, who has a son from a previous relationship with rapper Future. It is the second marriage for Wilson, whose first marriage, to his high school sweetheart, Ashton Meem, ended in 2014.
