Seattle Seahawks quarterback and Richmond native Russell Wilson took to Instagram today to announce his engagement with R&B singer Ciara.
“She said yes,” Wilson proclaimed enthusiastically in a video announcing their engagement. “I’m making this thing happen.”
Wilson and Ciara have been dating for about a year. The marriage will be his second, the first being with Ashton Meem, whom he met while she was a student at St. Catherine's. He attended Collegiate. The pair married in 2012 and divorced in 2014.
Editor's Note: An earlier version of this article misspelled Meem's first name as Ashley and stated that she attended Collegiate. We apologize for the errors.
