The youngsters appeared to be having a blast, despite Wilson saying that some locals had been wary about American football being played in China.
“The coolest part of Shanghai is the love of sports here,” he said in a video posted on Instagram. “Encouraging these young kids about football and going outside the box -- it’s been interesting because American football is such a physical sport and here in China, they’ve been talking about, ‘Maybe they’re too small’ and it’s not the case.”
“A lot of people said I was too small!” Wilson added. “So there’s a huge lift, encouragement, involvement and growth of kids wanting to play football here and it’s really exciting to bring football to China. Exciting times!”
Next, Wilson hit the Great Wall of China, leading a bunch of budding footballers in a run along the iconic wall. Once at the top, he celebrated by cranking Katy Perry’s “Chained to the Rhythm” for a little boogie “on top of the world.”
Of course, what goes up must come down and for that, the family hopped in the toboggan to descend from the wall. Even the couple’s 2-month-old daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson, was on board, tucked away in a baby carrier worn by her mom!
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback also shared the most adorable snap of 3-year-old Future Zahir -- Ciara’s son from a previous relationship with rapper Future -- running with a football, and a video of Ciara walking along the street. “My hot mama’s walking in China,” he gushed.
