Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson
is getting candid about his relationship withCiara
In a sit-down with Pastor Miles McPherson of The Rock Church in San Diego, Wilson opened up about his life, his beliefs, and taking sex with his girlfriend off the table.
"I met this girl named Ciara, who is the most beautiful woman in the world," he gushed. "She's the most kind person, the most engaging person."
The couple began dating in April and shortly after, Wilson said he received a message from God regarding his new love.
"She was on tour, she was traveling, and I was looking at her in the mirror," he said. "God spoke to me and said, 'I need you to lead her' and I was like 'Really? Right now?' He goes, 'No, I want you and need you to lead her.'"
Wilson said he asked Ciara, "What would you do if we took all that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus' way?" (And yes, the 26-year-old clarified that he was definitely "talking about sex.")
"I knew that God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me, and to bless so many people with the impact that she has, that I have," he said. "Nobody's perfect, but He's anointed us to do something miraculous, something special."
Apparently, staying abstinent would be a miracle for them both.
"I ain't gonna lie to y'all now," he said, " I need y'all to pray for us. 'Cause I know y'all seen her on the screen now. If there's a 10, she's a 15."
Um, you can say that again.
Ciara, 29, has been busy promoting her new album Jackie and current single (ironically titled "Dance Like We're Making Love") but the couple made time to pose for a sweet snap on the BET Awards red carpet last week.
"Can we really love each other without all that?" Wilson posited, referring to the pair's sex life. "If you can really love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody."
