On Friday (March 11), CiCi and Wilson shared the wonderful news on their respective Instagram accounts. In a 15-second video, a very happy Wilson yells, “She said Yes!” Meanwhile, Ciara can be seen giggling and covering her mouth with her left hand flashing a huge diamond ring that Wilson presented to her. In the caption, it reads, “Since Day 1 I knew you were the one. No Greater feeling…#TrueLove @Ciara.”
Ciara also reposted the video with the caption, “God Is So Good! I’m So Grateful For You @DangRussWilson. You Are Truly Heaven Sent, and I’m Looking Forward To Spending Forever With You.”
Awww, isn’t that sweet?
A rep for Ciara explained to Us Weekly how Wilson pulled off the big proposal. Apparently, after the couple had fun during Paris Fashion Week, Wilson surprised the singer with a romantic getaway.
“She was shocked when they landed in the Seychelles at the exclusive resort North Island,” the rep told Us. “The biggest surprise was that Russell proposed to his new fiance at the romantic, private Honeymoon Beach, located on North Island.”
The couple have been dating since last April and made headlines for reportedly abstaining from sex until their wedding day. This will be Ciara’s second engagement; she was previously engaged to rapper Future, the father of her two-year son Future Zahir.
Congratulations to Ciara and Russell Wilson on their engagement.
